Chicken W/Cashews

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Amy V

Our version of Cashew Chicken...YUMMY!! I use boneless, skinless chicken breasts & low sodium soy sauce. You could add really any vegetables you like in stir fry. We also add a large can of pineapple chunks (save the juice). I use the juice to thin the sauce as we like ours a little less thick. We serve over rice.

I do not use sherry so used pineapple juice, besides ingredients listed I used cabbage, broccoli, pinneapple I was going to use bean sprouts but they spoiled after a week. all in all I will make again. I did like the taste even with my substitutions.
