Instructions

Make rice
1

Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Add 1 1/4 cups water, 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl), Thai Seasoning and rice to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.

Prep
2

Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add cashews to the dry pan. Toast, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, 4-5 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on cashews so they don't burn!) Transfer cashews to a plate. Meanwhile, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Cut bok choy into 1-inch pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Cut longer tenders in half, leaving shorter ones whole.

Cook chicken and make sauce
3

Heat the same pan over medium-high. While the pan heats, add chicken to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with half the cornstarch, then toss to coat. When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Sear are golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. Meanwhile, add sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, remaining cornstarch and 1/2 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) to a small bowl. Stir to combine.

Cook veggies
4

Add peppers to the pan with chicken. Cook, stirring often, until peppers soften slightly, 1-2 min. Add bok choy. Cook, stirring often, until veggies are tender-crisp and chicken is cooked through, 2-3 min.** Season with salt and pepper. Add garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 30 sec.

Finish chicken
5

Add sauce mixture to the pan with chicken and veggies. Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens slightly, 1-2 min. Roughly tear basil into the pan, then stir until wilted, 30 sec. Remove the pan from heat.

Finish and serve
6

Fluff rice with a fork, then season with salt, to taste. Divide rice between bowls. Top with sweet basil chicken. Sprinkle with cashews.
