This recipe has potential, but it did not taste very authentic. If I make it again, I will omit the flour because it made the chicken a bit "mushy" and the sauce too thick.

Guess I'll be the first to rate this one. Kittencal, I've tried so many of your recipes (and have so many I need to rate!), and as usual this was wonderful. The sweet oranges, sauce, chicken, and cashews were an interesting combo. We ate it over rice and had broccoli on the side - a very filling meal! I made the recipe as written except used onion powder instead of green onions.
