Hello, Paleo Broccoli Cashew Chicken – a clean twist on a classic asian dish! A special thanks to Sunshine Nut Co for making this post possible.
Blogging has allowed me to get to know some of the best companies all over the world – Sunshine Nut Co is definitely one of them. If you haven’t heard of them, make sure to check them out! The founder & CEO was working in corporate America and decided something there had to be more to life. So, he moved his entire family to Mozambique, Africa!
Fast forward 6 years and the Company has succeeded in economic transformation in Mozambique – they grow, roast and package all their own cashews and employ mostly orphans from the surrounding areas. 90% of profits are reinvested back into the community – you can read the full story here.
It feels good to support wholesome companies and, just to be clear, the cashews are delicious too! This dish comes together quickly and is perfect for a weeknight meal. Enjoy!

- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- 1 bunch green onions, chopped
- 1 lb chicken tenders, cut into thirds
- 4 cups broccoli florets [10 oz]
- 1/2 cup shredded carrots
- 1 cup Sunshine Cashews [Roasted with a Sprinkling of Salt]
- 1 tsp garlic powder [or 1 fresh garlic clove, minced]
- 1/2 tsp red curry paste
- 1/2 inch fresh ginger, grated [less if you're not a big fan of ginger]
- 2 tbsp coconut aminos
- 4 tbsp chicken bone broth [1/4 cup]
- 2 tbsp orange juice
In a small bowl, whisk together sauce ingredients and set aside. Clean the chicken and pat dry. Cut into thirds, so each piece gives you 3 pieces. In a large saute pan, heat avocado oil over medium heat
Once oil is hot, add green onions. Cook for 3 minutes. Add chicken, cook for 2 minutes. Add sauce and broccoli, cover with a lid and cook another 5 minutes. Add carrots and cook covered another 2 minutes. Remove lid & Check your chicken! If done, add cashews and cook another 30 seconds. Turn off heat, garnish, serve & enjoy!
I like hot food, therefore, I like everything in my food to be hot, including cashews. Feel free to add cashews after chicken is done cooking if you want them to be crispier!
