Rinse the asparagus, pat dry, trim off the woody ends and cut diagonally into pieces (about 4 cm) (approximately 1 1/2 inches). Cut scallions into pieces (about 3 cm) (approximately 1 inch).
Rinse the bell pepper, halve, remove seeds and cut pepper into thin strips. Peel the garlic and squeeze in a garlic press into a bowl. Add the soy sauce and sugar and mix well until sugar has dissolved.
Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Cut into strips and season with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Stir-fry the chicken strips until golden brown, stirring constantly. Remove chicken from the wok and pour off oil.
Place the prepared vegetables in the wok and stir-fry over high heat until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes, stirring constantly so that everything cooks evenly.
Pour the garlic-soy sauce mixture in with the vegetables. Bring mixture to a boil and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Crumble dried chiles into the vegetable mixture. Add cashews and chicken and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Serve with rice.
