Cashew Chicken

Tonight for Family Fun Night at our house it is Bethany's night. She chose Cashew Chicken with Egg Rolls, and Chicken Fried Rice. Now before you get too impressed, the egg rolls and rice are from Sam's! I used to make my own egg rolls, but that was in the 1980's.

3/4 C orange juice
1/3 C honey
1/4 C soy sauce
1 T cornstarch
1 t ground ginger
1 t garlic powder
1/2 t pepper
2T vegetable oil
4 green onions, chopped
2 large carrots, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
4 boneless chicken breasts cut into chunks
1 C cashews

In a bowl, combine juice, honey, soy sauce, cornstarch, and seasonings. In a large skillet, heat 1T oil and stir fry vegetables until tender. In the same skillet, push vegetables aside, heat more oil and stir fry chicken. When the chicken is done, combine with vegetables, add sauce, and cashews and heat until thick and bubbly. This really tastes like restaurant food. Notes: I double this recipe for our family. Enjoy!

This sounds REALLY good, and I actually have all the ingredients except the the cashews....I may be making this tomorrow!

For us, I'll probably half the recipe. =)

Thanks for the recipe!

We had this for supper last night and it's REALLY good. I love reading your blog, and have ever since Tammy from Tammy's recipes blogged about your old world baked spaghetti (which was excellent also). I'm glad to see more entries again!
