    This looks quite good, but it's not "cashew chicken." It's stir-fried chicken with vegetables and cashews. There's a difference (to learn that difference, visit any Chinese restaurant in Springfield, Missouri and order "cashew chicken").

    This sounds good. I will probably use whole bone-in skin-on chicken thighs (juicier and more flavorful) and reduce the amount of celery. Otherwise, the ingredients sound delicious. Love bok choy!

    I made this to use up some bok choy. It was pretty good, a bit too much celery. I may make it again.

    This was fabulous! Very very tasty! Definitely putting on my make one a week list. The only alteration I made was I used 1/4 less cashews and reduced sodium chicken broth and no extra added salt. Next time going to try reduced soy sauce for the stir fry sauce. Excellent recipe! Thanks for sharing this :)
