I really likes this. My DH and girls likes it too. I thought there was a little bit too much of a ketchup taste for me, but it was still really good. Next time I won't add as much ketchup and more soy sauce...play around with it some. Thanks!!

This was an instant hit. The chicken turned out moist and tender. I also noticed a rather strong ketchup taste, but I used some fresh pureed chili pepper in place of a small amount of the ketchup and I added extra ginger (dried since I didn't have time to mince more fresh) at the end to conceal it.

I LOVE this recipe. It is exactly like the one I learned how to make in High School. I had lost the recipe years ago and have missed it dearly. I did double the sauce (thinking ahead) so I could cook up some Spatzle noodles to change it up a little for another night's dinner. This will be made again and again! Even my picky husband loved it! Thanks for posting!

Made exactly as directed, and very much enjoyed! Easy to follow directions made for a quickly prepared and delicious meal .... always remember to prepare in advance for this kind of dish, then it is ready before you know it. Served over steamed rice. Thank you Katie! made for Chinese/Vietnamese New Year tag game, Asian Forum.

I've been using my same cashew chicken recipe for years, so I figured I'd try something new. I have to say I was not impressed with this recipe. The sauce was bland and did not taste very authentic. I think I'll stick to my own recipe. Thanks for posting!

This was delicious and fairly easy. I was a bit worried given the amount of ingredients, but don't let that scare you. Husband and kids liked it too.

Delicious! Very easy and tasty. I didn't put in the cashews and it was still great! Thanks!

I made this for dinner tonight and my husband and I were plesantly pleased.....I used 1 1/2 lbs of chicken tenders, THOUGHT I had carrots at home but found out to late that I didn't so left them out, added canned water chestnuts and fresh broccoli.....I did as another person and cooked my chicken completely through before moving on. Next time I am going to play with the veggies....and there will be a next time.....served with fried rice for a wonderful meal!!

DH said 10 STARS! This is a great meal. I made half a recipe and it was perfect for the two of us with just a little leftover. Not only is the flavor great but it is so pretty to look at with all the veggies. Served with egg rolls.

awesome. I used just two chicken breasts for the 4 of us and that was plenty of meat. I didn't have mushrooms, but did use a zucchini. Otherwise I followed the ingredients exactly. I did cook the chicken all the way by itself so it was crispy, then took it out of the pan and finished everything else and added the chicken back in at the last minute. this is a keeper recipe!
