Reviews for Cashew Chicken with Bok Choy
"I made this to use up some bok choy. It was pretty good, a bit too much celery. I may make it again."
"This was fabulous! Very very tasty! Definitely putting on my make one a week list. The only alteration I made was I used 1/4 less cashews and reduced sodium chicken broth and no extra added salt. Next time going to try reduced soy sauce for the stir fry sauce. Excellent recipe! Thanks for sharing this :)"
