What the Beck???

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location: Cashew Chicken
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Dinnertime
Pages: 167 - 169   Copyright:  2015 Harper Collins  OR

I figured out that there are 303 calories, if 8 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

    I really enjoyed this dish, however it was VERY salty because I didn’t use the right soy sauce.  It is important to use low sodium soy sauce (like the recipe states).  I have never ordered this dish in a restaurant, but if it is anything like Ree’s, then it is worth the attempt.  Thanks Ree, for another great recipe!

 I began with the wrong soy sauce

 in went the vinegar

 and the brown sugar

 and the oyster sauce (this was a first for me)
What the heck is oyster sauce?
Who knows, but I added it to the mix.

and finally the sesame oil.

 I cut up the chicken thighs, and cooked 
them in a skillet in vegetable oil

 I added in the garlic, fresh ginger, and green bell pepper

 Then, I added in the sherry, cornstarch, 
water chestnuts and cashews.

 This is the final product.

 Ree served hers in pasta or rice. 
I only had pasta handy, so in the pot in went.

 This was my fabulous dinner!!!
Isn't it pretty???
I just love using this darn cute plate!
