  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning blend (such as Tony Chachere's®), or to taste

  • 1 ¼ cups chicken broth

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce, divided

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage

  • 25 sugar snap peas, chopped

  • 10 small spears fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces

  • 3 stalks celery, chopped

  • ½ red bell pepper, cut into thin strips

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • 1 (8 ounce) can sliced bamboo shoots, drained

  • ½ cup cashews

  • 1 pinch paprika, or to taste (Optional)


  1. Sprinkle chicken pieces with Cajun seasoning.

  2. Whisk chicken broth, cornstarch, and 3 teaspoons soy sauce together in a bowl until completely blended.

  3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a deep frying pan or wok over high heat. Cook and stir chicken in hot oil until cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and drain any accumulated liquids.

  4. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in the frying pan or wok over high heat. Stir-fry cabbage, snap peas, asparagus, celery, red bell pepper, green onions, and bamboo shoots for 1 minute. Stir in 1 teaspoon soy sauce. Continue cooking until vegetables are tender but still crisp, about 3 minutes.

  5. Stir chicken into cabbage mixture. Pour chicken broth mixture over chicken mixture, reduce heat to medium, and simmer until sauce thickens, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to low; add cashews and cook until heated through, 1 minute. Sprinkle with paprika.
