Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and chicken to skillet; cook and stir until chicken is cooked through. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.

While the chicken cooked, I prepared the Minute Rice by boiling water, specific to package directions.  Total time was maybe 7 minutes, tops!


Mix the broth, mustard, and cornstarch. Add to skillet; cook on medium-high heat until thickened, stirring constantly. Return chicken and peppers to skillet; cook and stir 2 minutes or until heated through. Stir in cashews. Serve over cooked Minute rice.


Soon we had a delicious, healthy, and super convenient meal to sit down and enjoy as a family.
