Chicken and Cashew Stir Fry (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten Free and Dairy Free Chicken and Cashew Stir Fry.

I'm always super touched when when someone brings in cakes or whatever and also brings in a little gluten and dairy free treat for me.  Yesterday at work I was super spoiled when Jo brought in the Sainsbury's free from chocolate traybake so I could enjoy cake with everyone else - thanks Jo.  Also for anyone who hasn't tried it - it is really good - just the right amount of cake and chocolate frosting.

I often make recipes that taste much better than they look - this is one of them.  I really enjoyed this as a tasty dinner a few weeks ago but when I came to add the photographs onto the website it didn't look that exciting.  Oh well some things just don't look great in food photos.  Luckily the combination of flavours make it a delicious and very easy dinner to put together at the end of a busy day.
