  1. Combine chicken, kosher salt, cayenne, garlic powder, and black pepper.
  2. In a small saucepan over a medium-low heat, whisk together tamarind, cane sugar, fish sauce, water, and yuzu pao sriracha and heat to melt the sugar.
  3. Heat 1 Tbsp of oil in a wok over high heat. Stir-fry the garlic, half the green onions, and carrots for a few minutes and then remove from the wok.
  4. Heat another Tbsp of oil in the wok and add the chicken. Stir-fry until cooked through and remove from the work.
  5. Heat another Tbsp of oil in the wok and add quinoa. Stir-fry to heat through and then add half the sauce.
  6. Make a well in the center of the quinoa and pour in the egg. Scramble the egg and then return the cooked chicken and carrot to the wok and stir-fry to heat through.
  7. Add the bean sprouts, cashews, chopped cilantro and stems, and lime zest and continue stir-frying to heat through. Add more sauce to taste.
  8. Serve garnished with the remaining green onion and lime wedges.
