Cashew Chicken Easy Recipe


A great recipe!

Cashew Chicken Easy Recipe - (Asian Food)

Chicken Ingredients:

1 chicken breast per person
1 egg per pound of chicken
1/4 cup milk per egg
Salted cashew nuts
Snipped green onion tops or chives


1 cup pineapple juice
3/4 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons catsup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 medium clove garlic (minced)
1/4 cup green pepper (chopped)


Remove the meat from the bone and cut into chunks. Flour and let stand for 15 minutes to dry the flour coating. Meanwhile combine eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Place floured chicken pieces in the egg mixture for 10 minutes. Remove from egg mixture and coat with flour. Fry in hot oil in a single layer. Keep chicken pieces warm in a covered pan in a 200-degree oven until all the chicken is cooked. Serve with Sweet and Sour sauce or Soy Sauce on top of the rice.

Sweet and Sour Sauce - Combine water, pineapple juice, vinegar, and green pepper. Cook until the green pepper is just crisp and tender. Add catsup, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic. Blend in brown sugar and cornstarch. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and cook until thickened and clear.

Thoughts On Cashew Chicken:

I am a huge fan of Cashew Chicken because, number one, it's delicious, and number two, I was born in Springfield, Missouri. Springfield is the home of Cashew Chicken brought onto the American food scene by David Leong. David started his restaurant in Springfield and began serving Cashew Chicken. I have been to Leong's many times. He passed in 2020 but most times when we would go into the restaurant he would be inside greeting people and watching them enjoy his food.

Some Questions For You:

Do you like Cashew Chicken, and can you remember the first time you tried it? If you have not tried cashew chicken, you are in for a delight! Also, did you see my last recipe? If you didn't, it is called Old-Time Corn Casserole and it will please those who love corn. Do you like corn dishes?

More Information For You:

All Things Considered, wrote a great article on David Leong and Leong's Restaurant you will enjoy. There's even a 30-minute recorded broadcast that you can listen to that will share the history and facts about this great American Asian delight.

My Thoughts For The Day:

Bibigo Korean Style Crunchy Chicken

GoWISE USA Air Fryer

The finished product!

My wife bought some frozen Korean-style chicken for me to try. I used the air fryer and it turned out pretty good. The sauce was very sweet and salty. It did not come with sesame seeds but I had those in the spice cabinet and decided to sprinkle them on top of my chicken. This meal has 18 grams of protein and filled me well. I would recommend this packaged chicken product for a quick meal.

Keep on cooking!
