I have been so blessed to have so many friends from different cultural backgrounds that are willing to share their family recipes with me. This is absolutely the most lip smacking delicious thermomix chicken and cashew I’ve ever tasted! 🙂
If you enjoy Chicken & Cashew when you’re dining at the local Chinese restaurant you will need to find a new favourite because you will be using this recipe now when you’re in the mood for Chinese cuisine!
This was a new family favourite within the first mouthful at our house! I suspect the same thing will happen at your house!
Thanks goes to Tania for sharing her amazingly delicious family recipe with us all! Happy Chinese New Year to those that celebrate.
To those that follow the Chinese Zodiac – This is the year of the Rooster – the Fire rooster to be exact. A quick google search and you will find information on what’s happening for you if this is your year.
