  • 5 stars! Easy to make & VERY tastey. Made a few minor changes: sautee'd veggies first in olive oil (used 1T ), then added the chicken strips to them. Also added 2T of red pepper flakes (we like it hot). Used Worcestshire inst of soy. My DH is on 2nd helping. Have pic,if you want it lmk. YUMMY! - 4/27/10

    you can - but from what I understand from my naturopath you really aren't supposed to cook with olive oil. But there are many opinions on that as there is with everything else :)
    Just enjoy the recipe..regardless of what oil you use

  • they are also in the ingredients list. 1 cup of dry roasted cashews. I wonder if you are supposed to chop them though? - 9/4/08

  • I was confused why this was Cashew Chicken if Cashews weren't listed in the ingredients. I see them in the directions though. Sounds tasty. - 9/4/08

    not sure how the cashews ended up omitted..but they are supposed to be there. 1 cup - I use whole but I imagine it'd be fine if they were chopped
