    Blueberry's Note:

    This is one of my all-time favorites. I usually double the recipe to make enough for company or leftovers. It can be a little tricky at the end doing several things at once, so my dh usually fries the chicken while I'm finishing up the rest of the meal. I'm not real sure about the prep and cook time, but did include marinate time in the prep time. Sorry if some of the instructions seem vague. A lot of it is personal choice and trial and error. But don't let that scare you off. This is a fantastic meal.

      Try shaking the chicken in a bag or using a big fork to stir it all around.

      Blueberry, no where in the states do they cook and serve cashew chicken like they do in southwest mo. This was very very good. Just like back home. My husband is from spfld. Anyplace else it comes in a sauce loaded with sauteed veggies nothing like what he's used to getting back there. This will be a frequent visitor at our table. Thank you for posting.

      I have searched high and low for a cashew chicken recipe like this. I'm from SW Mo and this is as close as it gets to authentic cashew chicken! Thank you!
