After reading the other reviews I made my own variation and the kids loved it. I substituted approximately 4 cups of chicken nuggets for the chicken meat, added another Tbl. of soy sauce, a teaspoon of ginger, some onion and garlic powder and a cup of chinese vegetables. My kids ate this very well and asked that I make it once a week.
Not a keeper-my kids and I thought it didn't have much flavor-my husband took one bite and called out for pizza. I didn't care for the soy sauce-soup combo-didn't taste right. Won't be making again
This tastes nothing like the cashew chicken I am used to. Too bland.
This casserole was too bland for my tastes, and needs some spicing up. My husband and I decided shredded turkey would be better than chicken, then add some garlic and a generous helping of lemon pepper. If you're making this for the first time, try halfing the recipe in case you don't like it. I still have leftovers in my refrigerator that I'll probably end up throwing out, unfortunately. The only redeeming quality of this recipe was the cashews.
This recipe wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. We really had to think about whether it was a "do again" or "never again". Since it was just ok, I don't believe I will try it again. I guess I just didn't like the soy sauce flavor with the soups.
The fastest dish I've ever made... Took only a few minutes to make. I agree that it lacks flavor. I used more soy sauce, boneless chicken thighs (super soft meat) and served with edamame.
I used cream of celery instead of mushroom because I hate mushrooms and it was ok. It is very bland, needs a little spicing up.
My kids loved this recipe. It was sweet and crunchy. A great way to use leftover rice.
