"Excellent recipe! Definitely restaurant quality. I substitued the carrots and snowpeas with a 16oz bag of oriental mix frozen vegetables. I think the cashews are a nice touch, but not necessary as it is the sauce that makes this dish. The ginger gives this dish a wonderful flavor."
"This is so good. I can totally recommend it. Very tasty and such tender chicken. A delight!"
"This was really tasty, I used half a green bell pepper and half a red one. The cayenne gives just the right 'bite'. We all loved this and will make it again. Thanks for posting."
"Definately restaurant quality. Didn't have snow peas and I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs. It was excellent. Will definately make this again!"
"An excellent hearty meal...wonderful...too good....great recipe....Feel like eating up this page on Recipezaar right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"Awesome dish!!! We all loved it and my son who doesn't like pea pods has changed his mind. I think next time I will cut the cayenne pepper by 1/2 to cut down on the bite. My husband loved it as is but my 8 year olds ate it and thought it was good too but drank a lot of extra milk. I might cut down on the amount of cashews only to cut down a bit on the calories. It's a keeper in this house!!"
"This is a really fantastic dish. The sauce so flavorful without being overly spicy (much to my husband's delight). You're right about the restaurant quality. Thanks so much for sharing."
"Easy, super super tasting dish! Thought I had cayenne pepper and then found out I didn't. It was still very tasty. Next time I will add a pinch I think. Also did not add the veggies, and again, still a stellar dish! Both daughter and husband gave it two thumbs up! Thanks, Dawn!"
"This dish is incredible. Has a huge burst of flavor thanks to the fresh ginger and yummy sauce. Very easy to make too. My family enjoyed it immensely. Thanks Dawn, for sharing your recipe. "
"OMG! This is sooooo good! I am chowing down as we speak. Mine looks a little funny, as I had to use green catsup, but that did not affect the taste one bit! I even fooled my stepson by chopping the onion into teeny tiny pieces so that he wouldn't notice them! I will surely make this again!"
"I made this last night and I have to say it is the best Cashew Chicken I have ever eaten! Thanks"
"Very special. Thanks Dawn."
"We love chinese food and I was excited to prepare this dish for my family. It was VERY ketchup-y and not very good. It was edible, but mostly I ate it because I had spent so much time preparing it! I am going to keep looking for a chicken cashew recipe!"
"For some reason, when cooking the chicken, ginger, garlic and onion, the cornstarch seemed to separate from the chicken, forming globs that stuck to my pan. Maybe I had the heat too high, or needed more oil . . . not sure, but next time I think I'll mix the cornstarch in with the catsup/soysauce mixture to avoid this. Otherwise, a very good dish, although my kids thought it had too much heat. "
"About as Asian as hot dogs. Who could like this? Have they never tasted chinese food before?
I would like to add that the one thing this recipe contributed was the mixture of soy and Worcestershire sauce. I never knew those two tasted so good together. I'll use that in the future, but as for this recipe.... KETCHUP? Why did I think that would be OK?"
"This is the best recipe I have ever tried-I highly recommend it"
"This was a great recipe. It was easy to make, not to complicated if you read instructions all the way through. Ingredients were easy to find and I live in Germany, use low sodium soy sauce to cut down on the salt if desired. Be careful though, its so good my hubby said he's not taking me out for Chinese anymore-this was better!"
"I made this for dinner one night and didn't have my fill of it, so I made it for my lunch, too! It was that good. I admit to making a mistake the first time and got the worcestershire/soy sauce amounts reversed, but it was equally good both ways. I used thin cut chicken breasts, and loved the size! I love the dark red sauce, so rich in color and just the right amount of sweetness. I find regular Chinese restaurant dishes too sweet these days, so I'll be making this one again soon! Thanks Dawn!

"This is a delicious Cashew Chicken. I made it with only two half chicken breasts but the rest as written. We liked the sauce. It was so good and a little spicy but not bad. We will be having this many times in the future."
