Asian chicken served on a bed of potatoes

This is an interesting mixture of ingredients and is both sweet and salty.

It has a rich and unusual flavour and could be also served with steamed vegetables.

Cashew nuts could replace the walnuts if need be.

I served it over potatoes so that I could soak the sauce into the potatoes, and then I dipped fresh home made bread into the left over sauce!

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 5-10 minutes
Makes: 2 - 3 servings

Ingredients
350 g skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2 cm cubes

1 tbsp hoisin sauce

1 tbsp dark soy sauce

80 g walnut halves, toasted
tsp sesame oil

Place the cut chicken in a bowl and add the cornflour, rice wine and ginger.
