Step 1

To make the cooking sauce, combine water, soy sauce, sherry, garlic, ginger, cornstarch and corn syrup. Stir and set aside.

Step 2

Heat a large frying pan or wok over high heat. Add oil and coat bottom of pan. Add chicken and stir-fry until pieces turn white on all sides (3 to 5 minutes).

Step 3

Add cashews to pan and continue stir-frying about one minute. Careful, they burn easily.

Step 4

Add the snow peas, water chestnuts and tomatoes. Continue stirring until all is hot.

Step 5

Stir up the cooking sauce to dissolve the cornstarch (it should now be tan in color, not black). Add the sauce to the pan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly (the aroma is fantastic!). Continue boiling for one minute as sauce thickens.

Step 6

Serve over hot rice.
