Excellent recipe! Definitely restaurant quality. I substitued the carrots and snowpeas with a 16oz bag of oriental mix frozen vegetables. I think the cashews are a nice touch, but not necessary as it is the sauce that makes this dish. The ginger gives this dish a wonderful flavor.
This is so good. I can totally recommend it. Very tasty and such tender chicken. A delight!
This was really tasty, I used half a green bell pepper and half a red one. The cayenne gives just the right 'bite'. We all loved this and will make it again. Thanks for posting.
