Cashew Chicken

June 17, 2014

Author Notes: It took me quite some time to get the ingredients for the base down just right, but once you get it go ahead and mix with different veggies. Personally I like the onion, pepper and celery combo. For the chili jam, I go to an oriental supply store that is local. For the Thai basil - I grow my own, but have used the jared version in the winter with some success. You can't really skip the basil as it really makes the dish. Curt Moczarski
