3.

Cut stems crosswise into very thin strips. Blanch in a pot of boiling salted water just to par-boil, about 2 minutes. Drain and plunge stems into a bowl of ice water. Drain well.

Dip top of chicken breasts in beaten egg white and then into cashews, pressing firmly to adhere. Place chicken, coated side up, on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven at 200° C (fan: 180°C, gas: level 3) (approximately 400°F) until chicken is cooked through and crust is golden brown, 12-15 minutes.
