Reviews forCashew Chicken Stir-Fry
"This was lacking something.... honey? onions? Water chestnuts? Seemed bland -- would not make again"
"I have been making this stir-fry from the original recipe that was in the 1997 magazine. I have substituted different vegetables with no problem. I do double the sauce and it is very yummy."
"Did not like the sauce"
"this was very good I did't have any carrots or snow peas so I added water chestnuts to have that crunch. Every liked this recipe."
"This is one of my first attempts at a stir-fry: I'm not crazy about them but my husband loves them. We both thought that it was ok but I'm going to keep trying other recipes."
"This is my stand-by for cashew chicken. I leave out the snow peas and use a cup each of the celery and carrots. Yummy! Naturally gluten-free for me. Perfect."
"One of the few stir fry recipes that turns out for me and my family likes."
"This is a fantastic recipe because you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand. I didn't have broccoli so I used asparagus and threw in some frozen green peas. My family of boys all love this dish and request it quite often. I have to hide the cashews until I am ready for them or they will all be eaten!! This was added to my recipe box as a favorite!!"
"Excellent! Even my toddlers ate it up. I substituted fresh cooked green beans and chopped red and green peppers for the broccoli and snow peas, and added a few drops of sesame seed oil. I can't wait to make it again."
"This has become one of my favorites."
