Chicken, Kohlrabi and Cashew Stir Fry

This recipe cooks in a snap, so make sure to prep all your ingredients before you start to stir fry. If you’ve never used kohlrabi, you’re in for a treat. It adds a nice crispness, just like water chestnuts.


3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, Trimmed of fat and sliced ½-inch thick
½ teaspoon salt
2 medium kohlrabies, peeled, sliced ½-inch thick, slice again to look like short French fries
½ cup roasted, unsalted cashews
2 green onions, thinly sliced

1. In a cup, mix together soy sauce, honey, and cornstarch. Set aside.
2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
3. Add oil, garlic, ginger, chicken, and salt. Cook and stir until chicken is almost cooked, about 3 minutes.
4. Add kohlrabi and cashews; cook and stir until chicken is cooked, about 4 minutes.
5. Add soy sauce mixture. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in green onions and serve.

Chicken, Kohlrabi and Cashew Stir Fry Tips:

Sugar can be substituted for honey.

Add red pepper flakes or hot sauce to add a kick.

I use chicken thighs because of their flavour and they don’t dry out like chicken breasts do as they cook. That said, if you prefer, you can substitute chicken breasts for thighs, just remember, they’ll cook quicker.

Serve with rice or noodles.

To save time, rather than finely chopping garlic and ginger, try finely grating them.
