MY DAUGHTER BROUGHT HOME HER FRIENDS FROM CHINA. I WANTED TO MAKE SOMETHING THEY COULD RELATE TO SO I TRIED THIS RECIPE. IT WAS EASY TO ASSEMBLE AND MAKE. NOT ONLY DID THE FRIENDS FROM CHINA LOVE IT BUT MY FAMILY ALSO LOVED IT. I WILL BE MAKING IT AGAIN.
The whole Kitchen Crew fell in love with this dish. We loved the crunch of the cashews and the chunky, satisfying chicken. This one deserves a big gold star..
