READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Miss V

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.
