Thankful for Cashew Chicken

lc3242


I would be even more thankful for Cashew Chicken if I could get it outside of Missouri. As it is, every time I go to Missouri I must eat it. Sure, Cashew Chicken is on the menus at most Chinese places but it is not made the same at all. Usually it's a stir-fry kinda thing, but the one I like is a sweet and sour kinda thing, just a different sauce.  Usually the sign advertises it as "Springfield Cashew Chicken" - wonder why after all these years it hasn't caught on elsewhere.  All they would have to do is add a second sauce (an oyster sauce) to their bar.

  3. Thank you. It's 8 in the morning and NOW I'm hungry. But the pictures are great - just not edible - more's the pity.

  12. I was just saying the other day I've got to learn to fix some of those yummy dishes.
    We enjoy some Thai food that I would love to cook up in my kitchen. (ya know.. the stir-fly and the pictures of water I posted a few weeks ago. snort)

  13. I live in Alabama, and we used to have a little Chinese restaurant here that served Springfield Cashew Chicken. It was so delicious and you're right, the other type is different (and to my thinking, not nearly as good). I definitely prefer this version (unlike you, though, I LOVE the green onions sprinkled on top!). Sadly, the restaurant closed some years ago, and I've never been able to get it at another Chinese restaurant here or anywhere else.
