How to make Cheesecake Factory’s Spicy Cashew Chicken

Step 1: In a bowl, place the seasoned rice flour ingredients. Mix well until blended.

Step 2: In a different bowl over ice, mix the batter ingredients.

Step 3: Whisk the sauce ingredients until well combined.

Step 4: In the seasoned flour, toss the chicken. Next, place the batter and the chicken into a large bowl. Mix well until the chicken is completely coated.

Step 5: In a large pan or wok, heat the canola oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the pieces of chicken to the wok and cook for about 3 minutes until browned and crispy. Make sure to break the pieces that stuck together.

Step 6: Into the pan, pour in the sauce and add the cashews and green onions. Toss well and continue to cook for another 30 seconds to a minute to thicken the sauce.

Step 7: Remove from the heat and serve right away garnished with some sesame seeds, parsley, and crushed cashews. Enjoy!
