Honey Cashew Chicken

Chinese food is my all time favorite food.  I could seriously eat it all day every day, and it does not help that PF  Changs is right across the street from our house! But the reality is my favorite chinese food is not a healthy choice to eat everyday.  So when I am craving the deliciousness of chinese takeout and feeling the laziness of ordering in, this is my go to recipe.

Oh my this satisfies every taste bud! The sweetness from the honey and the spiciness from the Sriracha (which if this is not part of your pantry it should be!) really brings this dish together.  And its so easy to make! It takes less time to make this then to call in and pick up chinese takeout. I added way more veggies to this dish then chicken and served with brown rice.
