1/2 cup cashews, roasted
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon cooking oil
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, about 1-1/3 pounds in all
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
3/4 pound penne
1/2 pound green beans, cut into 1-inch lengths




Combine the cashews and the butter in a food processor. Pulse to a smooth paste. Or, finely chop the cashews and combine them with the butter.

In a medium nonstick frying pan, heat the oil over moderate heat. Season the chicken breasts with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and add them to the pan. Cook until browned and just done, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan and let it rest for 5 minutes. Cut into small pieces.

In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the penne until just done, about 13 minutes. Add the beans during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Drain the pasta and beans and toss with the cashew butter, chicken, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoons of salt and pepper.


Wine Recommendation: A rich white wine, for example a chardonnay from California or Australia, will go particularly well with the richness of the cashews and butter.

Traditional Szechuan dishes are often quite spicy, but we’ve given this recipe only a slight dose of heat. If your taste runs to the incendiary, make yours hotter by adding more red-pepper flakes.
