This was as good as the cashew chicken we enjoy at our favorite Chinese restaurant. Thanks for posting.

Totally delicious comfort food--with great flavor, texture, and visual presentation!! My DH and I really enjoyed it! I scaled the servings to 2; simmered a 14 ounce can of reduced-sodium chicken broth down to 5/8 cup (I didn't have any chicken bouillon), used reduced-sodium soy sauce, added a clove of minced garlic to the soy sauce mixture (we love garlic!), and used pecans in place of the cashews (I can't eat cashews)--and it still came out perfect! This is such a tasty (and versatile!) recipe; I look forward to making it again! Thanks for posting, GREG IN SAN DIEGO!!

Hi Greg, Excellent Recipe! I made it exactly as the recipe said and put it over a mix of Brown and Wild Rice. The Sauce really added to the rice. This recipe has become one of my Families favorite Dishes. Thanks again
