Cashew Chicken Stir Fry

Cashew Chicken Stir Fry

Every month when I work on our menu, I try to find some new recipes to add to the rotation.  I found this one in a cookbook that Todd bought for me on one of his business trips.  It turned out really great.  I liked it a lot.  It reminded me of the Cashew Chicken at Panda Express.  The twins weren’t all the crazy about it, but that didn’t surprise me!
