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.

We love how the snappy veggies and pineapple make this stir-fry taste fresh and bright. Add brown sugar and you get a sweet-and-sour dish that’s packed with flavor. —DeEtta Rasmussen, Fort Madison, Iowa
"As the holidays near, I fix meals that are simple, light and nutritious," writes Sharon /Fleming of Bogota, Colombia. "This is one of our favorites. I keep cut-up veggies in the fridge for snacks...they're handy for tossing into stir-fries like this."
This colorful stir-fry is chock-full of tasty veggies, tender chicken chunks and a light, zippy sauce. Tangy oranges and crunchy cashews add extra pizzazz. "The recipe was an experiment," shares Nancy Johnson of Turah, Montana. "We love Asian food, and this dish filled the bill nicely."
I started to prepare a chicken stir-fry one day and discovered I was out of frozen snow peas. So I tossed in green beans instead with a few leftover wax beans for color. I've been making the recipe this way ever since.—Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida
“My husband and I never met a mushroom we didn’t like…so this flavorful dish is a favorite. I cook the rice in the morning and reheat it while cooking the mushrooms and chicken.” —Susan Bazan, Sequim, Washington
