I used the sauce from this recipe on some chicken that I marinated and sauteed (not battered/deep fried). It was very good and I wanted to eat the whole pan.

As it is written, I give this a 4-rating. I too am from Springfield, MO, and have a recipe that is very close to this. However, mine calls for sugar in the sauce, and I really believe it gives it something that this recipe is lacking. Also, my method for battering is different. I coat the pieces in flour first (let sit in the flour to soak up the moisture on the chicken) then soak in a mixture of 4 eggs to 1 1/2 cups milk, also for a few minutes. Then redip in flour and deep fry. This makes the most incredible coating on the pieces, that really holds onto the sauce. By the way, I also use that method to make to-die-for chicken strips, adding salt and pepper to the final flour.

I really wanted to like this, but I it just didn't do it for me. I've noticed that other versions of this dish include soy sauce and white sugar, that might have helped. The only change I made to the recipe was to make a cornstarch slurry to prevent clumping.

Poster is correct--only in Springfield will you find this...and it is delicious! I lived there for many years and enjoyed this dish frequently. When I would travel around the country and order cashew chicken, it was NEVER cashew chicken as I knew it; it was so puzzling. Finally someone explained to me that it truly was 'Springfield' cashew chicken, and that other cities' renderings of the dish were entirely different. Thanks for posting. I was given a similar recipe several years ago (by someone who knew the story as Perri does) but I lost it. Scrumptious!
