Home Made Cashew Chicken (No Cashews)




Home Made Cashew Chicken

This recipe  is My kids and all their friends FAVORITE meals! Seriously every time one of their friends are spending the night I get begged to make this for dinner! ( I think maybe my daughters friend come over just to eat! Just kidding) My daughter is allergic to Cashews and Pistachios so we can not actually have those in our house. This recipe is a NUT free recipe as is our home. Cashew Chicken even in restaurants do not use any cashew oil  or cashews anywhere except for toppings.

This recipe serves 6-7 depending on your family. You can adjust as you need to. I like things to be simple and cheap. It really doesn’t get a whole lot easier.



Ingredients :


2- 2 1/2 cups of flour
4 Lg Eggs
3-4 Boneless skinless chicken breasts
Vegetable oil for deep fryer ( I just got a Huge deep fryer for my Birthday. I love it. It does take 3 bottles of vegetable oil to fill to the “max line”
Salt and Pepper
2 Tablespoons of milk
Cashews (optional)
Fresh chopped green onion (optional. I usually use green onion but forgot to buy it)

Directions For Chicken:


Deep fryer should be set @ 350 degrees

Mix egg and milk together in a bowl

Put flour and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl or even a zip bag ( I prefer the zip bag. Less      cleaning)

Cut chicken into chunks


Place chicken first in egg than in flour. Coat evenly. ( I like to shake the chicken in my zip bag)

Fill you deep fryer with the chicken.in a single layers.


Fry for about 5-7 depending on the size of your deep fryer.


I always dump the chicken onto a plate with paper towels to soak up and extra grease then salt



Sauce Ingredients:

2 Large Jars of Heinz Classic Chicken Gravy

3 Tablespoons of oyster sauce

Salt and pepper to taste


Sauce Directions:

In a large pot, pour in both cans of Heinz Chicken Gravy (or the gravy you chose)

Add in the 3 tablespoons of Oyster sauce and mix well. Also a dash of salt and pepper


Set between med and low. Stir occasionally. About 5-10 minutes until warm
Pour over chicken and Rice. Top with cashews and green onion if you please.



That’s it! Simple. To make thing even more simple I use the Minute Rice (premium). I box will feed 6 or more people. I have figured out that there are 4 cups of rice in a box and you need to boil 4 cups of water, then add the entire box, stir and cover for about 7 minutes.. Fluff and serve.

Cheap and easy dinner that everyone LOVES! Cashew Chicken will be a new Favorite in your house too!
