    Place onion, bell pepper and garlic into same skillet; cook, stirring occasionally, 2-4 minutes or until crisply tender. Add all remaining ingredients except cashews; stir. Place chicken breasts over rice mixture.

Tip #1

Curry powder is not one spice, but a blend of several spices, herbs and seeds that creates a unique taste. In India, homemade curry’s intensity can vary from cook to cook and region to region. Premixed curry powder can be found in the spice section of your supermarket.
