Cashew chicken

Cashew Chicken


1 lb boneless skinless chicken, diced 

1/2 teaspoon salt 

1/2 teaspoon Clearly Organic Ground Pepper 

2 Tablespoons corn starch 

3 Tablespoons Clearly Organic Olive Oil 

2 cups broccoli florets  

1 red bell pepper, diced 

2 cloves garlic, crushed 

1/2 cup Clearly Organic Cashews 

1/2 cup green onions, sliced for garnish (optional) 


3 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce 

2 Tablespoons Clearly Organic Honey 

1 Tablespoon rice vinegar  

1/2 teaspoon Clearly Organic Ground Ginger 


In a bowl add chicken, salt, pepper, and corn starch. Toss to coat evenly. In a large skillet add olive oil and chicken then cook for 5 minutes over medium heat. Flip and stir chicken so all sides cook evenly. When chicken is about 50% cooked add broccoli, bell pepper, and garlic. Stir to combine and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked through. While vegetables and chicken are cooking add all the ingredients for the sauce to a jar with a lid. Secure the lid on the sauce jar and shake vigorously. Add the sauce and cashews to the skillet then stir to combine. Allow ingredients to simmer for 3 minutes. Sprinkle green onions on top then serve immediately and enjoy!

Balanced Meals with Libby’s® Fruits & Vegetables

What exactly is a balanced meal? There are so many factors that help define a meal – there are seasonal, cultural and holiday considerations and occasions, time of day differences, dietary preferences, allergy restrictions, and more. Even the size and frequency of your meals is up for personal interpretation.

While what you prefer for breakfast during the work week is going to be different than what you eat at a family holiday party, both are considered meals, and there are ways to create a something nutritious and balanced in both scenarios.

There are two, fairly easy questions you can ask yourself when making a meal:

    What is my source of protein?

    What is my source of carbohydrates?

These two questions will help you balance out your meal to make sure you are getting enough of the right nutrients. The best part? These two questions work for gut-checking what you’re preparing at any time and for any occasion.

Here is why you should focus on your sources of protein and carbohydrates:

Protein is needed for growth, repair, and maintenance.  This includes muscle tissues, bones, nails, hair, skin, blood, and cartilage. Food sources: Meat, fish, seafood, beans, eggs, nuts, soy.

Carbohydrates provide your body with fuel for energy.  The fiber from carbs promotes good digestion, blood sugar decrease, and heart health benefits. Food sources: Potatoes, rice, bread, vegetables, fruits, sugar.

Libby’s® Canned Fruit & Vegetables are a source of carbohydrates that can provide your body some of the nutrients it needs. You can easily open a can of Libby’s® fruits or vegetables, add a protein of your choice, and just like that you have an easy balanced meal covering your nutrition basics.

Below are some recipes showing you how Libby’s® can be incorporated into a balanced meal.
