Having grown up in Springfield, the home of every type of chinese cuisine,(every business that goes under a new chinese place is born) THIS IS EXCELLENT!!! I have used a recipe for years but the sauce was not the right stuff! This one is!!!
The recipe does not specify but you should fry the chicken pieces in peanut oil. Thanks Brad, this one is a keeper!!!!!
will do again next time i will cook chicken and make the sauce as the recipe calls for but i will put the chicken directly in the sauce and let the chicken soak up more of the sauce that way the chicken needed more of the sauce taste to it then i will pour this over some white rice i added the rice we think it was a good add to this recipe thanks
Brad, thanks so much for this recipe. My 3 sisters and I have been working on a good recipe for cashew chicken after eating it weekly for 15 years or so I miss it and have to travel home to get it at least once a year. And Mexican Villa too. haha We were using way too much oyster sauce yours is right on. You would think people would realize it is supposed to be salty hence the 8 b. cubes, soy sauce and oyster sauce. Thanks again.
THE ONLY GOOD EXPERIENCE I HAD IN SPRINGFIELD WAS EATING THE CASHEW CHICKEN! THIS RECIPE WAS REALLY CLOSE, BUT A LITTLE TOO SALTY.
Thank you Brad!!! I initially thought it was a bit too salty, so I have left all of the actual salt out of the recipt ... there is enough Soy & Oyster sauce sodium for me.
This is the best!I never thought I would see a recipe like this! I went to college in Springfield and always wanted to make this for my family! Thanks!
The sauce has a Super taste! Not too bitter or too sweet. When I double breaded in the past, I never waited ~ This time I did like the recipe said to do and WOW the nuggets turned out wonderful. ~GREAT TIP!!! The breading stayed on and only a little bit remained in the fryer (The only changes I made to this recipe were:I added corn starch to the flour and I used peanut oil to fry in a deep fryer)
I've made this so many times and my hubby will eat it for days on end. Perfect for those who don't like all the veggies that come in Chinese food. Since the sauce is seperate you can add as much or little as you like.
