Chinese Restaurant Ginger Cashew Chicken

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Carol in Cabo

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.
