Another Dinner Supplied by Asian Food Grocer

Bear with me for one more salute to Asian Food Grocer (see below post). So last night's dinner was so delish that I still had the need for food with an Asian flair. I still had some of the great products that I received from Asian Food Grocer. Tonight I used the Jasmine rice, and water chestnuts. I whipped up a batch of Cashew Chicken. This dish is comfort food to me. A dear friend gave me this recipe and it is so simple and super delicious. I am not always comfortable with posting Asian style recipes, I just figure that since I don't have an ounce of Asian in me, I really don't know what I am talking about. Besides, we all know that it always tastes better in a restaurant...when someone else makes it for me. But every now and then I fall upon a recipe that gives me some legitimacy with the Asian cooking thing...and if it doesn't .....I don't want to hear about it :)

Try it...tell me about it.....and check out Asian Food ROCKS!


1 lb chicken, cut into chunks
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon garlic
1 teaspoon ginger
1 cup onion
1 cup celery
1 can water chestnuts
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 cup cashews

Marinate the first five ingredients for about an hour. Heat a skillet (or wok) to medium heat and add the oil, garlic, ginger, and chicken with marinade slowly until just about cooked through. Then add the onion, celery, water chestnuts and broth and cook for 10 minutes or so. Add the cashews and serve over rice.
