- Preparation and cooking time

For the sauce
- STEP 1
To make the sauce, mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl until completely blended. Heat the oil in a frying pan until very hot. Throw in the chicken, cashew nuts, pepper and onion, then stir-fry for about 4-5 mins until the chicken is cooked and the nuts are toasted. Pour over the sauce and simmer with a splash of water. Remove the pan from the heat, then stir through the watercress just before serving with boiled rice.
WATERCRESS VS CHINESE GREENS
Stir the watercress through right at the last moment so it only wilts slightly and keeps its crunch. Chinese greens can be hard to find and are often expensive, so watercress makes an ideal alternative, plus it actually has more flavour.
