Years ago, I ordered Cashew Chicken in a local Chinese restaurant--it was delicious; the cashews had been cooked, it must have been in a stir-fry manner, nearly to the point of caramelization. Alas, that particular restaurant is no more, and whenever I've tried to order the dish again, I've gotten a dish that's usually a chicken in a creamy sauce with cashew nuts thrown in at the end type. And I didn't particularly like it, either.
I try different dishes from time to time; I like to experiment but do sometimes get things I end up not liking! And the quality (and tastiness) will vary from place to place, as I've found with one of my other favorites, Singapore rice noodles (delicious but can be very spicy, btw!).
Anyway, I recently got the idea that maybe I could find a recipe for the caramelized cashew chicken dish on the internet, but I haven't had any luck. I keep finding recipes for the "saucy" chicken with cashew nuts thrown in on top kind.
So, I'm asking if any of you folks who might know, is there a recipe for this caramelized cashew chicken? Or maybe that restaurant mis-prepared it that time? I did find an Indian recipe that was stir fry, but it also had coconut in it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
