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.

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.

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.

It was super easy to make and some of the best cashew chicken I've had.

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.

Pretty good! Used just enough canola oil to saute chicken and onions/peppers and at the end I added only 2 tablespoons of sesame oil. Didnt have any green onion so I only used red. Pleasantly surprised by how tasty and easy it was to make.
