From the Test Kitchen

A takeout favorite gets a quick, easy boost of flavor thanks to our sautéed aromatics (which highlight a fragrant combo of garlic, ginger, and scallions) that we’re cooking alongside our chicken. Bites of juicy fresh orange add brightness to the stir-fry, while a sprinkle of cashews creates a final layer of crunchy, contrasting texture.
