A riff on a classic Chinese dish that uses fried shrimp, this recipe has a mild sweetness that isn't overly cloying. Cashews provide a satisfying crunch, and the broccoli adds much-needed color, texture and nutrients.
|2 cups broccoli, cut into small florets||1 cup raw unsalted cashews|
|Olive oil||1/2 cup mayonnaise|
|Salt||2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk|
|2 cups water||4 cups cooked chicken, diced|
|1 1/3 cups sugar|
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Toss the broccoli florets in enough olive oil to lightly coat; spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Season with salt and roast until tender but still crisp and slightly browned, about 15 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, combine the water and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Add cashews and boil for 2 minutes. Remove cashews and spread in a single layer on a baking sheet to dry.
In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise with condensed milk. In another bowl, combine chicken, broccoli and cashews. Add the sweetened mayonnaise and mix well. Taste and add salt if necessary.
