Reviews for Cashew Chicken with Noodles

"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!"
"I made this tonight for my family. We all really liked it! I used sesame oil and Olive oil (adding about 1T. Peanut butter to oils). After cooking the chicken per the directions, I did add about a cup of chicken broth before adding the cooked rice noodles. And although I added the chili sauce to the dish, we all ended up adding a lot more to our individual bowls. Yummy!!"
"I thought this was excellent. thank you asugarcookie for what you said about the corn starch. I had read these reviews a few weeks ago and was going to say the same thing, but was waiting till I made it, lol. The taste of this dish is great. the changes I made was I didn't use the 2 oils called for. I used canola oil and olive oil and added some sesame seeds to the oil when I was heating it. I also used the skinny rice noodles because they were out of the wider ones and I still loved it. Next time I'll probably use the wider ones to see the difference. I added broccoli and mushrooms too. My hubby and I both loved this and I will definitely make it again soon."
