Cashew Nut Chicken Stir-Fry (腰果雞丁)

This is the first weekend when none of us at home is ill or down with flu or some kind of strange bacterial infection.

I could have learnt to do the sugared orange slices a little bit better though, but I guess I could forgive myself given this was my first attempt at sugared fruit slices.
