  2. Stir in the pineapple pieces and sugar snap peas and return to the microwave for another 3-5 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked. Leave to stand for a few minutes, then stir in the cashews, if using, and serve.

Didn't like the idea of cooking meat in microwave, so adapted the recipe and cooked it in the wok instead. Loved the sauce and this tasted fresher and better than any takeaway !! Served this with plain rice - we actually cooked this dish faster than it took the rice to cook !!
