Sheet pan meals are my jam. I mean what isn't to like about a meal that is all cooked on one sheet pan for easy clean up and simple meal prep. Now to be perfectly clear, this dish actually involves an extra pan to make the sauce, but it is 100% worth it. We almost finished an entire sheet pan's worth between two of us one night. I loved it so much, I decided to skip the rice so that I could have more chicken and veggies.
Now let's talk about what this is not. It isn't a typical Thai Cashew Chicken that is made with super spicy dried Thai chilies, palm sugar, fish sauce, and usually a touch of Thai Whiskey. (I have a lightened up version of the traditional version here if that is what you are looking for.) Instead this is a Thai inspired version that uses a combination of soy sauce, oyster sauce, garlic, honey, and Asian garlic chili sauce to create a sticky sauce that is perfect for chicken and veggies.
What about the cashews? While you may be tempted to leave them out, please, please don't! The lightly roasted cashews add so much to the dish. They are nutty, rich, and we were fighting for the last ones. They are seriously delicious and although the dish would be good without them, it is so much better with them. Plus cashews add extra protein, antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. In fact, if you aren't worried about calories/points, I would add some extra!
