Cleaner Chicken Cashew
4 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon Agave Nectar
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups celery, chopped
1 white onion, chopped

In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons soy sauce and 1 tablespoon sesame oil. Add chicken and set aside.
In a small bowl combine cornstarch and broth until smooth. Stir in nectar, molasses and remaining soy sauce; set aside.
Heat skillet or wok over medium-high heat. When pan is hot sauté chicken quickly until chicken is no longer pink. Remove, keep covered and warm.
In the same pan, heat olive oil and stir-fry celery, onion and edamame with garlic until veggies tender but crisp. Return chicken to the pan. Stir in sauce mixture and cashews. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Serve over fresh bean sprouts.
