Cashew Chicken

Another favorite from Momma Gardner, we really enjoy this recipe. The nuts offer a nice change of pace from the typical rice dinner. Enjoy!

1 lb boneless chicken breasts
¾ cup orange juice
1/3 cup honey
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp corn starch
¼ tsp ground ginger
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 large carrots, sliced diagonally
2 stalks celery, sliced diagonally
½ cup cashews or peanuts

Cut chicken into cubes or thin strips and set aside. Combine orange juice, honey, soy sauce, corn starch, and ginger and mix well. Using one Tbsp of the oil over medium-high heat, sauté carrots and celery (just about 3 minutes). Remove vegetables and set aside. Using the other tbsp oil, brown the chicken. Return vegetables to the skillet and then add sauce mixture and nuts. Cook and stir over med high heat until sauce thickens. Serve over hot, cooked rice.

OK I'm going to leave some honest feedback. After all that's the only way recipes are improved yet this is just my opinion. I made this tonight and it was ok. I did not like the strong orange taste which is not typical in a cashew chicken dish. Also, I would add green onion, sesame oil, and a dash of chili sauce. I toasted the nuts which always increases their flavor. FYI for anyone else who wants to leave feedback, you can always select "Anonymous" and say whatever you want. I don't think anyone's feelings will be hurt anyway as positive criticism is best and everyone is entitled to their opinion. Thanks for all the great recipes.
