    Chef floWer's Note:

    A Chinese type of Chicken with Cashews recipe. I added less peanut oil when I was stir-frying as I thought six tablespoons was a bit to much. I used chicken liquid stock instead of water to give the recipe more flavour. I use bean sprout instead bamboo shoots (personal taste) however I think you could add any vegetables you wish without dramatically altering the flavour. When I make this again I would add cashews to the wok to allow them to warm a little instead of sprinkling them at the end. The recipe said the yields is four servings but we had small servings for three people. This recipe is from 'Cooking with Love' by Friends of Karen, Inc Does not include marinating time.

      Super tasty and quick! The cornflour in the marindade helps the flavour really stick and also locks in the moistness. Only changes I made to suit what I had on hand was to use baby corn instead of bamboo shoots and a variety of different colours of capsicum. As suggested in the intro I warmed the cashews by putting them in with the vegies at the end, they soaked up a great flavour from the hoisin etc so it's a really worthwhile step.

      Wonderful. I made this as part of a big Chinese Shabbat meal this past Friday. I used turkey cutlets rather than chicken and used 6 of them, and adjusted everything else as needed. I added a diced onion and bok choy with the bell pepper and bamboo shoots. This was so easy to make I'll be adding it to my rotation. Everyone loved this. Thanks for posting. I'll make this again.

      Almost 50 years ago my mother took a cooking class while my father was stationed in Okinowa. She still has the cards from the class, and this recipe is almost identical, hers does call for an onion. She still makes the recipes from that class and it is always a treat. This is my hands down favorite.
