Better than take out. If you dont have a wok, you can use a large fry pan. Watch those cashews, or they can burn easily.

Absolutely delicious! I made this pretty much as written except: I didn't have white wine vinegar and used rice vinegar instead, and I used fresh ginger in place of the ground ginger. Oh, I also used 5 chicken breast HALVES. The sauce was wonderful and my family of five wiped out this meal. Thanks a lot for the recipe, I'll definitely be making this again.
Wow - wonderful recipe - this is an "again please recipe". I marinaded the chicken in the corn starch/soy for about 3 hours. Like the other 2 reviewers I used rice vinegar. Excellent cooking sauce! I omitted the corn starch from it . I left the chicken in the wok when I added the onions & mushrooms finally added the peppers. I did not have any snow peas (weather too miserable to go out) but they would add extra color & flavor. Used yellow, red & green peppers. Thanks BoxO'Wine for a great recipe
I would like to give this recipe more than 5 stars! Absolutely fantastic! You are right when you say it is better than take-out. I used 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs. I did not have the white wine vinegar, but used rice wine vinegar in it's place. Sherry & I will make this again!!!!
