Chinese Cashew Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Ratalouille

A delicious and simple dish. The original method of cooking is in a crock pot, which works great if you plan to eat it later or to take to a potluck, however, one night I didn't have 4-6 hours to wait, so I just threw everything into a large pot and cooked it on the stove in about an hour. Either way, the results were the same ... delicious. I have also substituted shrimp and steamed broccoli, which I cooked separately and added only during the last 10 minutes of cooking. Enjoy.

I used Pork Tenderloin for the meat. I seasoned with salt and pepper,quickly sauteed it until no longer pink.(Hubby is sick of chicken),and cream of celery soup instead of chicken. I combined everything and let it come to a boil. Placed in a 9x13 casserole and baked at 350F for 30 minutes. Served over brown rice. It was a big hit. Thanks for such a versatile recipe.
