  • Add the onions, garlic, chicken, and red pepper flakes to a large bowl. To the bowl, add the corn flour and soy-sauce; stir to evenly coat the chicken. Cover the bowl and set in the fridge for 1-2 hours to marinate.
  • Add the oil to a wok or frying pan on medium-high heat. Add the cashew and stir fry about 2 minutes or until fragrant.
  • Add the chicken and onions mixture; fry 5-8 minutes depending on size of chicken. Make sure there’s no pink showing on any chicken pieces.
  • Add the water, mix well, and cook for 3-4 more minutes.
  • Add the spinach stir and cook until the spinach reduces down - about 2 minutes.The chicken should now be cooked through, the sauce thickened, and spinach cooked - serve rice. For additional flavor, drizzle some Secolari Coconut White Balsamic on top.
