Thai Chicken with Cashew Nuts

I adopted this recipe from Oranut - THANK YOU!!!
This famous Thai dish can be found in every Thai restaurant, still this recipe is the best ;-).

Ingredients (serves 4):

400g chicken breast
1 onion
2 scallions
1-2 carrots
1 red sweet pepper
100g roasted and salted Cashew Nuts
3 tbs white soy sauce
1/2 tsp Sugar
2 tbs starch
4 tbs oyster sauce
sesame oil, vegetable oil

Cut the chicken into slices, not thicker than your thumb. Set aside
For the sauce, stir Soy sauce, sugar and a few drops sesame oil in a bowl. Add to the chicken and mix well. Add the starch and mix again. Let chill for about 30 min. in the fridge.
Meanwhile wash, and cut all vegetables into bite-sized pieces.

In a deep pan heat 100 ml vegetable oil. Roast the chicken gently until it gains a gold-brown colour. Remove from pan. Remove nearly all of the oil (leave about 1-2 tbs). Heat the pan and add the cut onions and roast them for one minute, add chicken and roast shortly. Add the vegetables ans stir once. Now add the oyster sauce and stir well. After 1 minute remover from pan and scatter the Cashew Nuts over the dish.
Serve with rice.
