Heat a large wok or stainless steel skillet over high heat. Add the coconut oil to the wok along with the chili peppers and peppercorns. Stir-fry 15-20 seconds until the chilies start to smoke. Push to one side and add the chicken in a single layer to the wok. Let sear for about 1 minute until a nice golden crust forms on the chicken.
Using a sturdy spatula stir-fry the chicken and chili mixture for 2 minutes longer.
Throw in the cashews and scallions and toss to combine. Add the teaspoon of coconut sugar and give the stir-fry a good toss for about 20 seconds.
Serve hot with shredded cabbage, cauliflower rice, or by itself.
