Dutch Oven Cashew Chicken

Recipe by SusieQusie

From my recent Texas Co-op Power magazine - while originally intended for camp cooking, this recipe has been modified for the stove-top. No traditional oriental ingredients here (soy sauce, hot peppers, etc.) but after all, the submitter IS a Texan.

Yum! This was very filing and so easy to prepare. I used both red & green bell peppers/capsicums and had to leave out the celery because I didn't have any at home. I think if I make it again I would add less sugar maybe 1/4 cup, because the dish was sweet enough with the pineapples. However we did enjoy the cashew chicken just as written. Thank you SusieQusie.
