    Carol in Cabo's Note:

    Posting so I don't lose the recipe, no idea where I got it. I've made it many times and it's the best Chinese Chicken in a town where there are no Chinese restaurants! Some quantities are iffy, the original recipe didn't specify.

      I hate to be the party pooper, but my family said that it just didn't have the sweetness or the zing that my stir fry using the orange-ginger marinade and sauce by la choy. Very disappointed in their review, but not in the recipe, as it seems to be a winner for others and my family is *****VERY***** picky. Thanks! Oh, and if I were to do it again, I'd prob. add some citrus zest (whichever I had on hand) and some sugar or something. mom's diabetic though, so this was enough of a splurge.

      We live in the country and if we want any take away food we have to drive into the city for it and by the time we get it home it is lukewarm. With this recipe I don't have to go into town for my Chinese food. I did add in a red pepper that I sliced and just added the fresh broccoli (and pepper) with the celery. I think that the next time I make this I will add thinly sliced carrots to the mix for additional vegetables. We also have enough leftover food for lunch tomorrow. Thanks for posting a tasty recipe.

      This was really good! Not too spicy, but very savory. I made this with only about 1/4 cup of cashews - I'm watching my calorie intake. Don't forget to add the hoisin sauce when you add the broth, soy and mustard. I truly recommend it.
