Since making this recipe, I never order it out. This is so much better than any chicken cashew I have tried at a restaurant.

I agree this is a wonderful recipe -- quick prep, great taste and don't skimp on the cooked onion -- but it comes almost word for word from Betty Crocker's New Cookbook (1996). And canned mushrooms, who are we kidding? Give credit where it's due.

Tastes better than restaurant cashew chicken and way less greasy. I will be making this again. Thanks.
