We really liked this dish (even my 13 month old!) I modified this recipe a bit. Instead of veg. oil I used peanut oil (it's all about flavor!) I started by stir-frying garlic (I think stir-frying ginger with the garlic would be a good idea too). As everything was stir-frying together I added 2 TBS rice vinegar 4 TBS Curry powder and 1 tsp. of sugar. I also used brocolli carrots and water chestnuts. Read More

I thought this was pretty tasty-except for the amount of oil used-10 tablespoons! I cut it down to about 3-1 tbsp canola oil to cook the chicken then 1 tbsp to stir fry the veggies. I didn't add a full tbsp of the sesame oil-I feel it's not really needed since it's pretty flavorful. I also would have added a clove or two of garlic and another tsp or so of curry. Read More

I made this recipe tonight for dinner and it was a hit. I found it to be a little oily for me but I would make it again. Nice soft flavor. Read More

This was very tasty but a bit too oily for my liking. I would definately make this again as it was a hit but would probably cut down on the amount of butter and oil used. A bit more curry powder wouldn't hurt either. But on the whole very good. Read More

My boyfriend loved this but I didn't care for it. I thought the peanut oil was too overpowering. It wasn't anything like cashew chicken at a chinese restaurant and he agreed that he likes that kind better. But he ate all of it! Read More

I agree with the other reviews it was tasty but too greasy. My husband thought it was good but didn't think it tasted like cashew chicken should. Read More
