Hello thare, Friday! So extremely happy to finally meet up with you again, old pal. Thanks for bringing the weekend!

I’m talking to Friday.

And how are you, friends? All is well, I hope! And if it wasn’t, it should be by now ’cause, you know, it’s Friday. We can deal with whatever at this point. Including, skinny takeout fakeout. Or is it, take-out fake-out? Fake-out Take-out? Ah who knows! Grammar nazis are going to come after me no matter what. 

30-Minute Skinny Cashew Chicken - Delicious, lightened-up cashew chicken ready in just 30 minutes! And it's soooo much better than take-out!

Guess what, though!? Today’s Cashew Chicken is brought to you by Joanna Cismaru’s new cookbook, ➡ 30-MINUTE, ONE POT MEALS! ⬅ She is also the creator of the blog, Jo Cooks.

30-Minute One Pot Meals

Her cookbook is nicely divided up into chapters based on the pot that you want to use. There’s One Baking Pan, One Saucepan, One Skillet, One Casserole Dish, One Bowl, One Dutch Oven, and finally, One Wok.

Super simple and convenient.

If there was ever a book that I could completely, 100% relate to, THIS is the ONE! My favorite meals always take 30 minutes and are done in just one pot. As Jo says, “Good food doesn’t necessarily mean you have to slave for hours in your kitchen to get dinner on the table… With a bit of prep work and a good pot, you can have yourself a great meal.”

TRUE DAT, JO!

Take this Skinny Cashew Chicken, for instance. We ❤ this extremely basic and wonderful copycat homemade meal. All we have to do with this is just cut up our chicken, chop up some peppers and throw it in the pot. Err. WOK! In the wok. I LOVE woks. They get things done so quickly and so deliciously.
