Meet the Cook: For me, the hardest part of making this quick dish is keeping the cashews in the cupboard! My husband loves them, and so do our three little girls - 5, 4 and 3. -Vicki Hirschfeld, Hartland, Wisconsin

this was very good I did't have any carrots or snow peas so I added water chestnuts to have that crunch. Every liked this recipe.

This is one of my first attempts at a stir-fry: I'm not crazy about them but my husband loves them. We both thought that it was ok but I'm going to keep trying other recipes.

This is my stand-by for cashew chicken. I leave out the snow peas and use a cup each of the celery and carrots. Yummy! Naturally gluten-free for me. Perfect.

One of the few stir fry recipes that turns out for me and my family likes.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2011

This is a fantastic recipe because you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand. I didn't have broccoli so I used asparagus and threw in some frozen green peas. My family of boys all love this dish and request it quite often. I have to hide the cashews until I am ready for them or they will all be eaten!! This was added to my recipe box as a favorite!!
