Reviews for Orange Cashew Chicken
"Been making this for years. Often prep carrots, celery and chicken ahead and put in bags. Makes after work dinner fast and easy!"
"Really delicious. Before adding the sauce, during the last 2-3 minute I add in some snap peas or snow peas."
"Delicious! The whole family loved it...and we fought over who could have the leftovers!"
"Easy and delicious!"
"My husband loved this, I thought it had a bit too much orange flavor though. Good dish overall, with an asian flavor."
