Reviews for Cashew Chicken with Noodles
"I took the advice of some and adapted the recipe for more sauce by thinning it with coconut water (which I happened to be drinking at the time). I also added broccoli and mushrooms to up the veggies. I made rice instead of noodles. The flavor was good, but way too salty. Next time I'll add some water chestnuts for additional crunch (besides the cashews) and use less soy sauce. A decent, basic recipe."
"So easy and delicious!"
"This was a great fast and easy meal. The only thing I'd do different is add more of the chili sauce. My whole family enjoyed it, even my picky one."
"Just had this for dinner... Added chicken broth as suggested. Added more Chili Sauce as suggested. Added more cashews...then added more soy sauce. Kept trying to add some life to this, but it was just SO dull and bland. It wasn't horribly"bad" but it wasn't memorable either. Won't be making again."
"My husband and I both thought this was very tasty. Next time I will add some chicken broth as others have suggested. Mild enough for me and spicy enough for him!"
"Yum! Easy and quick to make and very, very tasty."
"This is my favorite recipe now! It's been a big hit with all of our family! Quick, easy, & delicious! We always add a little more sweet chili sauce, but that's according to individual preference. Don't change a thing!"
"I made this recipe exactly as written, though I cut the green onions into smaller pieces (large chunks of any kind of onion don't work well for me), and I used up some bulk peanuts instead of the cashews. I usually add peanuts when I make a stir-fry anyway. I definitely did NOT add any chicken broth, as others have suggested, and it did not even cross my mind that that would be necessary. It was absolutely delicious, and I wanted to make it again the next night!I saw this recipe a while back but had never made it because I thought I hated Thai food (i.e. the sweet chili sauce). I am so glad that someone convinced me to eat Pad Thai (with chili sauce, yum!), which convinced me to make this recipe!Also, I had a recommendation from a friend that if you think the noodles are tasteless, cook them with additional amounts of the spices that you will be using..."
"Even our very picky son liked this!"
