Tried it: This surprised me. Both Lawrence and I loved it! I made a few modifications- only did 2 TBS of hoisin, added more water and a slurry of corn starch. Also added water chesnuts and used unsalted cashews.
this is the cashew chicken i've grown up eating. NOTHING tops springfield style cashew chicken. this is the only way i eat it :) I have been having Springfield Cashew Chicken withdrawals since I moved away from there 10 years ago.
