Cashew Chicken

Due to popular demand....follows the recipe:

Cashew Chicken
1/2 C. Milk
2 T. water
2 eggs, well beaten
4 Large chicken breast halves, cut into bite-size pieces
2 T. cornstarch
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 T. oyster sauce
1 t. sugar (I use about 1T.)
Pepper to taste
1 C. flour
Vegetable oil for frying
1 C. cashew nuts
1/2 c. green onions
soy sauce
Hot fried rice

Marinate chicken in milk, water, eggs and salt 20 minutes. In a saucepan, dissolve cornstarch in a small amount of broth; add remaining broth gradually to make a paste. Blend in oyster sauce, sugar, and pepper. Stir over medium-high heat until sauce boils and begins to thicken. Set aside. Dredge chicken in flour. Fry in oil in a heavy skillet until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towels. Arrange chicken on a serving platter; sprinkle with cashews and green onions. Reheat sauce and pour over chicken. Serve immediately with soy sauce and rice. Serves 4.

*oyster sauce is found with the other "Chinese sauces" in just a reg. grocery store.

Hope you enjoy the recipe. It's pretty easy to prepare and a favorite of ours. Let me know if you try it.:-)

**Char, I tried your pancake recipe Sat. morning. Very, very yummy. I'm all about the food, sad to say. :-)

Thank you very much! I'll have to run to Meijer and get some oyster sauce (if it's anything like fish sauce--whew--stinky!)
