Ginger Cashew Chicken         



So very stylish, with its garnish of pickled ginger slices, this fragrant chicken dish is very much in keeping with the trend toward Asian-influenced fare.

1 tablespoon minced peeled gingerroot
1 tablespoon reduced­ sodium soy sauce
3 cups hot cooked brown rice
Pickled ginger
