This recipe came from a friend of mine. She swears this is the only way that she will make Cashew Chicken and that she was never able to make a good Chinese meal until this recipe.

I did not care for this recipe. I was skeptical when I read 1/2 Cup of ketchup and I should've stuck to my instincts. The ketchup was way too overpowering. I may give this recipe the benefit of the doubt and try it again, but next time I'll eliminate the ketchup and add a couple tablespoons of white wine.
