MRE RECIPE: Asian Chicken Cashew

This is one of my favorite recipes. Cashews make almost everything taste better!  Give this a try.

1/4 cup chicken chunks or bits
1/2 cup instant rice
1 tbsp garlic powder or flakes
1 tbsp green onions / scallions
1 tbsp cashew pieces (toasted or raw)
1 tbsp bell pepper dices
1 tbsp carrot bits
1 tbsp water chestnuts
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tsp brown sugar
1 beef bouillon cube
pinch red pepper flakes

Combine and seal. Reconstitute with 1 1/2 cups (or more) of boiling water. Should be delightfully thick!

  • Nightshade-Free: If you can't handle nightshades, eliminate the bell and hot peppers.
  • Dairy-Free: naturally
  • Gluten-Free: naturally but make sure the rice is gluten-free
  • Low-Carb: naturally, except for brown sugar. Leave it out if you need to.
  • Low-Sugar: naturally, except for the brown sugar that you can leave out if you'd like.
  • Dehydrates the water chestnuts yourself (make sure sliced thin).
  • Instead of using a bouillon cube, make your own beef stock, simmer until reduced and thick, then spread out thin and dehydrate.
  • If planning to store this for a long time, leave out the cashews and seeds. Add them in when preparing to eat.
