What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz. rice sticks or dried vermicelli, broken
  • 3 T sherry
  • 3 T soy sauce
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • 8 oz. skinless, boneless chick breast halvess (sub thighs if you prefer dark meat)
  • 1 medium carrot, cut into thin bite-size strips or thinly sliced
  • 1 C broccoli florets
  • 1 small red or green sweet (bell) pepper, cut into 1-inch strips
  • 2 T cashew halves or peanuts
