Easy Cashew Chicken



My family LOVES Chinese take-out, but I don’t love the prices, especially right now when we’re really focusing on sticking within our budget.  One night of take-out would blow half of our eating out budget for the month!  I tested out this recipe for Easy Cashew Chicken last night, and it was a HIT with my entire family.  My daughter commented that it tasted just like take-out, which made my night!  We’ll definitely be making this one again!
