The kids absolutely loved this. And it made the whole house smell of sweet BBQ (the hoisin sauce). But I will admit that I thought the flavor was a little bland. I’ve been thinking about what it might have needed and am still unable to come up with a solution. Make it and let me know, would you?
Really. You should make it. This cashew chicken is easy and will be a crowd-pleaser if you have kids. If you don’t have kids or have adventurous eaters, add a little red pepper flake or chili paste. That might be the solution. And maybe add a little salt to the chicken when you marinade it. Let me know if that works, please. I might try it again.
Oh. And we skipped the jasmine rice in favor of purple rice. Very popular with princesses around the nation. You can find it here.
