I do love a good stir fry. You can include as many veggies as you want. You can also add some meat or just have the veggies by themselves.

We love eating stir fries especially with a good sauce. This recipe for Cashew Chicken sounded quite yummy, so I decided to make it for the family.

The meal was easy to prepare and didn’t take long to make.cashewchicken1cashewchicken2

The smell of the sauce cooking in the frying pan was making us hungry. The kids couldn’t wait to try the Cashew Chicken stir fry.

The kids rated this recipe 4 basils. 2 out of the 5 kids didn’t like the beans being too soft. Next time I won’t cook the beans too long. They liked the sauce, but we did pour some extra soy sauce over the chicken and veggies. It just went well with the dish. We do love soy sauce!
