Sorry but those nuts in the picture are cashews.

Yes, I didn't have pistachio nuts on hand, so used cashews instead. Also added some red bell pepper and carrots to give some veggie boost. The best thing of stir-fry is that you can add whatever you have on hand, and it still tastes delicious. Happy Cooking :)

Also---8 chicken breasts seems WAY off! Should it be 8 OUNCES of chicken breast?

Pella, United States about 1 year ago

This recipe is 8 servings, so 8 chicken breasts are the right amount. 8 ounces chicken breast (1 chicken breast weights about 8 ounces) would be only 1/2 pound and enough for maybe 1 or 2 servings.

So it all depends on how much you are going to make, and it's very easy to scale down the recipe. Hope this helps :)
