Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F and wash and dry all produce. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add cashews to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) While cashews toast, pat chicken dry with paper towels, then season with salt and pepper. Transfer toasted cashews to a plate.
Increase heat to medium-high. Add 1 tbsp oil, then chicken to the same pan. Pan-fry, until golden, 2-3 min per side. Transfer chicken to a baking sheet. Roast in middle of oven, until cooked through, 6-8 min.** Meanwhile, thinly slice mushrooms. Trim beans, then cut in half. Thinly slice green onions. Peel, then finely grate 1 tbsp ginger.
Heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then rice and half the ginger. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Add 2 1/2 cups water. Cover and bring to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cook, still covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.
While rice cooks, heat the same pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add mushrooms, beans and 2 tbsp water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender-crisp, 4-5 min. Add remaining ginger. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min.
While veggies cook, whisk together hoisin-soy sauce, broth concentrates, cornstarch and 1 1/2 cups water in a small bowl. When veggies are done, add hoisin mixture and stir together. Bring up to a boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 1-2 min. Add chicken and any juices from the baking sheet. Season with pepper and stir together.
Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in green onions and season with salt. Divide rice between bowls and top with chicken and veggies. Spoon over sauce and sprinkle over toasted cashews.
