Weeknight style 20 Minute Honey Garlic Cashew Chicken and Coconut Noodles. The super-fast chicken bowl that looks restaurant-style, but tastes even better…and is healthier too! Quick-cooking chicken tossed in a sweet and spicy honey soy sauce with mango jam, cashews, and lots of fresh basil. Serve this chicken over creamy coconut rice noodles and top with plenty of lime juice. Every bite is spicy-sweet, and the cashews add a nice little crunch. It’s delicious, healthy, and so darn easy. Perfect for busy weeknights.

One of the questions I get asked most often is where I draw inspiration from. Unfortunately, the answer isn’t always that simple. I get inspiration from almost everything. The littlest things can inspire an entirely new idea. Maybe it’s a brother recommending his favorite T-Bell menu item. Or a pretty color palette that inspires everything from the recipe creation to the way I style the dish. Honestly, there are so many things, which is why I feel like I’ll never fully run out of new ideas. You just never know where new inspiration will come from.

But for today’s recipe? The inspiration was simple and so easily explainable. A couple of fresh Thai basil plants found at Whole Foods. Along with some pretty champagne mangos picked up there as well. Two, simple ingredients inspired this quick-cooking honey garlic cashew chicken. And while it’s simple, it’s so flavorful and fun too!

Since it’s such a quick dish, let’s jump into the details…

With Thai basil being my inspiration, the flavors within this chicken are heavily Thai influenced. I always start out with the noodles. I like to use vermicelli rice noodles, but you could use any variety of rice noodles or even angel hair pasta. Cook them according to the package directions, and while that’s happening, start prepping the chicken. By the time the water has come to a boil you should be able to have everything prepped and ready for the chicken.

Next, drain off those noodles and start in on the chicken. For the sauce, there are just three ingredients…low sodium soy sauce (though I prefer to use low-sodium tamari – but either works), honey, and sweet mango jam. If you don’t have mango or pineapple jam on hand, try using apricot preserves. Mango jam is ideal, but apricot will work in a pinch!

I grab my mango-pineapple jam from The Little Market. I’ve worked with the Little Market for years. I love all the incredible things they do for women. They’re a fair trade organization that supports dignified income opportunities for women in need. They sell exclusive hand-crafted, ethically sourced, products from over 70 women-led artisan groups and social enterprises. Right now I am obsessed with their new line of jams and hot sauces. Every last one is so flavorful and delicious, yet made with simple, real ingredients. The Little Market jams actually come from women artisans in Eswatini Africa!

Alrighty…next, cook up the ginger and garlic, then add the chicken and a splash of soy sauce. The key is to caramelize the chicken and get the garlic nice and crispy, but not burnt. So, make sure to watch it closely as the chicken cooks.

Once the chicken has caramelized, pour in the sauce and simply simmer until the sauce glazes the chicken. This happens quickly, about five minutes or so.

While that’s happening, finish up the noodles

I toss them up in a hot pan full of sesame oil and garlic. Yes, noodles, oil, and garlic…but then add a touch of coconut milk for a little more sauce and additional creaminess. These are SO GOOD. A little unusual I guess, but so good.

By the time the noodles have cooked, the chicken should be done as well. The noodles are meant to be saucy, so once you toss them with the coconut sauce, be sure to serve them right away.

Spoon the noodles plus the sauce into bowls, then add the chicken. Finish each bowl off with a squeeze of fresh lime juice and Thai basil. Then, toss in some mango chunks too. Only if you’d like of course, but I wouldn’t skip them. I love mango…and spicy-sweet + fruity recipes are the best.

Now enjoy…immediately, it’s that simple, and that quick-cooking. Honestly, this will take you no time at all to make and it uses mostly pantry staples too.

And most importantly, this is just a really delicious, fresh, flavorful, and healthy dinner that you can mix up any night of the week. You might even already have all of the ingredients on hand too!

Pretty hard to beat that.

    1. Hey Adrienne,
      Sure, I think that would be delish! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    So good! This will be a staple for our house. I used pineapple preserves because couldn’t find mango, added some steamed broccoli. Added some lime zest to the noodles, and used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce to keep it gluten free. Delicious!

    1. Hey Alexandria,
      Happy Sunday! Thanks a lot for making this recipe. I am delighted to hear that it was enjoyed! xTieghan

    Another winner! So easy and so good! I made the mistake of overcrowding my cast iron pan so the glaze had a hard time reducing down to thicken. I added a touch of cornstarch with water and it thickened right up. Next time I’ll be sure to not overcrowd the pan but it was still SO good. Everyone loved it.

    1. Hey Whit,
      Happy Sunday! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am so glad that it was enjoyed!! ☀️xTieghan

  3. Made this for a Monday night recipe with some slight modifications, and it did not disappoint! One thing to note if your sauce isn’t caramelizing/comes out liquidy — crank up the heat and try a cast iron pan.

    1. Hey Jennifer,
      Happy Wednesday! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am thrilled that it was enjoyed! xTieghan

    1. Hey Marisa,
      Happy Friday! Thanks a bunch for making this recipe, I love to hear that it was enjoyed. Have a great weekend☀️ xTieghan

    1. Hey Hillary,
      You could use pineapple or even apricot jam in place of the mango jam. I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  4. I can’t get mine to caramelize! What am I doing wrong?? It’s so tasty and delicious but liquidy. What’s the key to thickening it and making it more caramelized? Thanks for your help!!

    1. Hey Tami,
      Is your pan overcrowded? You want to make sure that your chicken has enough room to caramelize rather than just steam. I hope this helps for next time! xTieghan

    This was wonderful! I used Japanese Ramen noodles and my family loved it. Found Mango Jam at Home Goods. This took a little longer to prep than 20 mins but it was worth it. Thank you!

    1. Hey Stephanie,

    This is a terrific recipe. I initially had the same problem with the chicken browning that a few other mentioned so I took it all out and cooked it in 2 batches to avoid overcrowding. That did the trick!

    Next time I will double the sauce because it was so good. This is definitely a keeper!

    My family loved this recipe, I couldn’t find any ripe mangos at my local grocery store so I added pineapple instead. I also wanted a veggie so I added red bell pepper. So yummy! Those noodles were so freaking creamy and the flavor was perfection.

    The dish tasted great but my chicken didn’t caramelize. It was quite saucy and the sauce was very watery, which was disappointing. I followed instructions and measured everything carefully. Where did I go wrong?

    1. Hey Ingrid,
      So sorry to hear this! What kind of pan did you use? I find that my cast iron skillet really helps to thicken and caramelize my sauces. You can also try adding corn starch to help the sauce along. I hope this helps for next time! xTieghan

    After reading lots of reviews, I gave this a try! Here’s what I learned–
    Use a cast iron skillet as suggested in lots of reviews. My sauce and chicken turned out nice and brown and coated nicely, nothing runny like others experienced. I think the pan was key.
    I had never cooked rice noodles and either under or overcooked them, so they were super chewy; should have kept a better eye on those!
    The red pepper flakes add a perfect amount of heat but that could easily be eliminated for those who don’t like heat at all.
    Lastly, don’t skip the mango on top! It is such a nice compliment to the sauce!
    Amazing flavors, super simple to put together, and not many dishes! 😀

  16. This was AWESOME. The sweet. The savory. The zesty.
    Had to sub my jam for the Apricot kind and the coconut milk for cashew milk.. still sooo good. AND I used “brown” rice noodles and I threw some surprise chopped up kale in there with the basil to add a little more of a healthy spin for the fam… no one knew 🙌🏼♥️

    I loved the 20 minute Honey Garlic Cashew Chicken with Coconut Noodles. It was really flavorful and a nice touch with the mango in it. I, of course added veggies as I always do because who doesn’t need a little more green in their life? Thanks for sharing and keeping my family happy at meal time. This one is a keeper.

  18. This recipe looks delish – can’t wait to try! Quick question: I don’t see in the recipe’s instructions when you add the cashews? Do you toast them first before adding them in? Thanks.

    1. Hey Jennifer,
      The cashews are added in step 3 after the chicken. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    This recipe is DELICIOUS!! For any vegans (or carnivores who want to eat more plant based), try using extra firm tofu (rather than chicken) which has been completely frozen, then thawed. This makes the tofu’s texture more meat-like. Additionally, it will make your tofu super absorbent, making for a flavorful dish. If you try this method, I’d recommend using slightly less oil (the tofu will soak up EVERYTHING, and using the recommended amount of oil for chicken will give you an overly oily tofu).

    I personally didn’t love the noodles in the coconut sauce. Next time I make this recipe, I’m going to use white rice instead:)

    All in all, this was a phenomenal recipe, and I can’t wait to make it again! Thanks 🙂

    this recipe was so delicious and easy for a weeknight meal! i saw some comments about the sauce being too thin, but all you have to do is cook it down a little longer and it becomes this perfect sweet soy glaze that coats the chicken. and i always love making your coconut noodles, so yummy!

    Just another amazing from Tieghan. Nothing to see here! This was delicious! I ended up using Apricot preserves, which made the sauce delicious.

    Made this tonight and it’s a keeper. Loved the flavours. I may try toasting the cashews before adding them to see if that might add a bit of crunch but otherwise keeping the recipe as written. Started thinking about a perfect dessert to follow…a cake or something with macadamia nuts, coconut, and pineapple…. Thanks so much for all your efforts.

    1. Hey Hannah,

    One of my new favorite HBH recipes! I actually made it twice this week… We will definitely be adding this to the regular rotation 🙂 I made a few edits – including coating the chicken in a little flour and browning it first, then adding the garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes. I was a little worried about burning the garlic so this helped – and the flour also helped thicken the sauce a bit! I too used apricot preserves because I couldn’t find the mango jam. I also used roasted/salted cashews and they worked just fine! The mango and lime added such a nice bit of freshness and acidity. Thanks for another great recipe!!!

    Made tonight, was very good! I made a previous recipe of yours with vermicelli noodles, and they are so tasty to make this way. Could only find apricot jam, but I probably could have used crushed pineapple/fresh crushed mango in a pinch as well. I just did one tablespoon of honey, and the sweetness was balanced. Loved all the flavors together, and the oomph from the basil (I only had a handful of basil). I forgot to buy mangos, and forgot the lime at the end. Seems to be a forgiving recipe. Will definitely make again!

  40. Made this tonight. It was sooooo good!!! I had bought all the ingredients besides the mango and went to the store just for a mango before cooking. So glad I did!! That extra touch of sweetness is the perfect combo. This will definitely be on our “repeat” list!!! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. Hey Deb,
      I don’t see why that wouldn’t work! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know how it turns out! xTieghan

  41. We made this last night and it was excellent! We’ll probably double the soy/honey/mango sauce next time. The coconut milk and garlic on the noodles was a nice touch as well! Thanks for another great dinner!

  42. This came out fantastic!
    I cubed and coated the chicken with arrowroot flour before cooking it. I think this helped with the caramelizing process. I also added by spoonfuls the coconut milk to my desired sauce thickness.
    4 boys + 1 dish = all happy! It doesn’t get better than that! Thanks Tieghan.

    Thanks for the great recipe and the tip on the cast iron skillet – I used mine and the sauce consistency turned out great! I’m a vegetarian and I used a chicken substitute – I may add edamame with the leftovers to get a veggie in there but really enjoyed it!

    Made this tonight. Fast and easy also delicious! Didn’t have mango jam so used spicy mango chutney. Worked out really well. My hubby really enjoyed it too. Thanks

  46. I didn’t have any basil, and used frozen/thawed mango chunks I stirred in at the last just to warm them. The noodles (rice sticks) didn’t have a lot of flavor on their own… I used boxed coconut milk, not sure if it’s the same., but under the chicken everything was so good. Mine didn’t turn as dark as yours, but will definitely make again! Thanks!

  47. 4 stars
    Made the recipe and it was delicious! I added some kale sauteed with miso, honey, and butter, and it was a really great savory addition! I recommend using very thin noodles – i used a flatter brown rice noodle which was fine, but not as aesthetically pleasing 🙂

  48. I made this tonight and it was INCREDIBLE. I did use a tablespoon of pineapple juice instead of the jam because that’s what I had. But so dang good.

  49. This recipe is amazingly delicious. I made it with extra firm tofu (that I drained & pressed) & it came out really yummy. Thanks for another great recipe!

    I made this tonight. My dad loved it and my mom and I liked it. First, how do you carmelize the chicken? I’m wondering if I need a different type of pan (cast iron maybe?) Next, mine was a liquidy sauce. I added cornstarch but yours looks like it stuck to the chicken and wasn’t saucy. Do you have any thoughts as to why this wasn’t the case for mine? It seems like other people had the same issue. I ussd an apricot spread not a jam because that’s what I had. It has less sugar than jam and I wonder if that was art of the problem. Any thoughts?? All in all it had a nice flavor.

    1. Hey Lori,
      Thanks for giving the recipe a try. I really feel like my cast iron pan create the thick, sticky sauce that people are missing. I hope this helps for next time! xTieghan

  51. Love this recipe! Just made it tonight and added mushrooms for even more umami flavor. I wasn’t able to get the chicken to caramelize in the sauce, though, which I was really hoping for. How do you get yours to be “stickier” instead of just the sauce splashing over the chicken? Thanks!

    1. Hey Emma,

    As always – absolutely amazing! Loved switching it up and trying this cuisine. So delicious & easy to make! Definitely will become a regularly requested meal in our house.

  53. I really liked the flavors, but I couldn’t get the sauce to thicken. Any tips? That has happened with another Asian recipe of yours I’ve tried! I really like the flavors, but just want the sauce to coat the chicken.

    1. Hey Becca,
      Fantastic! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am it was enjoyed! Try adding some cornstarch to thicken the sauce. xTieghan

  54. Totally kid friendly… and that’s where I am in life. Super easy to put together and delicious. No one complained and that says a lot in my house!

    My chicken did not have the same deep color but who cares when the meal is great!?

  55. My whole family loved this recipe!! Will definitely be making it again and again!!! Thanks for the amazing recipes!!

    Made this last night. It was insanely good. The garlic in the noodles takes it up a notch and the sauce on the chicken is delicious! I used regular milk in the noodles at Teaghan’s suggestion (given I can’t have coconut milk) and it was still so flavourful. 10/10 will make again!

      Yes, that will be just fine to do, just note your noodles could become soggy overnight. I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan

  58. i actually only have pineapple jam, not pineapple and mango. would that work for this recipe? if so, do i need to use less or more? the recipe looks great!

    1. Hey Amanda,
      I would just use an equal amount of pineapple jam. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  61. Easy & Good!
    I was short on skillets, so I just combined the sauces for the chicken and the noodles into one pan (omitting the second dose of oil). Also didn’t have mango or jam so I subbed pineapple juice and pineapple for a topping. Turned out delicious!

    1. Hey Shawna,

    This recipe was tasty but a little too sweet. Also, I followed the recipe as written and the sauce was watery and never thickened. I ended up putting a bunch of steamed veggies to soak up some of the sauce.

    1. Hey Cyndi,
      Thanks so much for giving the recipe a try! If you ever need help thickening a sauce, you can always add some cornstarch. xTieghan

    1. Hey Peter,
      I would just skip the coconut milk and keep your noodles plain. I hope you love the dish, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  63. I made this tonight! It was delicious!! Subbed mango jam for apricot, but otherwise made as is. The flavors were fantastic, thanks!!

    1. Hey there,

    This looks amazing and I’m wondering what a good substitute for the sesame oil would be as my daughter has a sesame seed allergy. I usually replace with avocado oil and extra soy sauce but let me know if there’s a better substitute. Our family loves all of your recipes!

    1. Hey Brooke,
      I think that would work just fine here! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  65. Suggestions on other types of jams that would work? Don’t have either apricot or mango. Have lots of berry jams and fig preserves. I might toss in some pineapple on top; but looking for suggestions on jams or preserves that might already be in the pantry.
    I think you have the best food photography of any print or online site I use. I’m having breakfast, and you get me interested in dinner! 🙂

    1. Hey John,
      I think something like mango, pineapple, or apricot jam would work best here, I don’t think berry jam would be your best option. I hope you enjoy the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    This recipe looks delicious. just one question: In the photo, it looks like the chicken is in cubes, not sliced. Please advise. I am so excited to try this recipe.

    1. Hey Monica,
      Either sliced chicken or cubed chicken will work, whatever your preference is. I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan

  67. Trying to think what veggies would go well with this? Broccoli? Zucchini? Shredded carrots? Baby corn?

    1. Hey Annelise,
      Any and all of those sound great to me! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    1. Hey Sharon,
      You should be able to find raw cashews at any local grocery store, yes unsalted would be the same thing:) I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan

        In the pictures you have the. Hi Jen marinating is something but in the actual recipe I don’t see that. Can you clarify.

        1. Hey Connie,
          I just tossed with a little bit of the sauce, you don’t have to do this:) I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan
