  1. In a bowl, stir together the first three ingredients and add chicken; coat well and set aside.
  2. In another small bowl, mix the cooking sauce ingredients and set aside.
  3. Place a wok over medium-high heat; when wok is hot, add 2 tablespoons of the oil. When oil is hot, add the cashews and stir until browned (about 1 minute). Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  4. Add the chicken mixture and stir-fry until meat is no longer pink in the center (about 3 minutes). Remove from wok and set aside.
  5. Pour the remaining tablespoon oil into the wok. When the oil is hot, add the bell peppers, onion, asparagus and ginger; stir-fry until the pepper is crisp-tender to the bite (about 4 minutes).
  6. Return the chicken to the wok. Stir cooking sauce to blend and add to wok; stir until bubbly and sauce has thickened. Stir in the cashews and immediately serve over the rice.
