whoooo, is this some delicious stir-fry!!!! I had cashews in my freezer left over from the holidays, and this was just the perfect dish to use them up! Not at all hard to prepare...I used 4 chicken breasts and nearly doubled the recipe, otherwise followed the directions as stated. We served it with oven baked white rice. My family loved this dish Uncle Bill, it's definately a repeater, thank you so much for posting!...Kitten:)
