I’ve tried many chicken salad recipes over the years, but this is my very favorite. It’s fresh, fruity and refreshing, and the cashews add wonderful crunch. Every time I serve it at a potluck or picnic, I get rave reviews…and always come home with an empty bowl! —Kara Cook, Elk Ridge, Utah
We love eating ethnic foods, especially Asian dishes. This chicken stir-fry is my family's favorite! The cashews add crunch and a sweet, nutty flavor, and the tasty sauce adds richness to garden-fresh carrots and broccoli.

"I especially like this dish because I can get it ready the day before I need it," comments Julie Ridlon of Solway, Minnesota. It's easy to whip up with common pantry items, including macaroni, canned soup and saltine crackers.
Says Linda Avila of Toone, Tennessee: “Whenever my friends and I get together for a potluck, they always ask me to bring this dish. The recipe came from my brother; it has a distinct Chinese flavor from all the spices.”
As a home economics teacher, I gave presentations on cooking with microwave ovens when they first became popular. Back then, I shared this pretty salad and warm citrus dressing with my students. It remains one of my favorites today.
