“This is really easy. Raw cashews are available at health food stores. Using raw cashews does make a difference - there is no salt, they are much sweeter, and they are addicting as a snack!”

This was great. I just finished eating it with my mother and we both adored it. I know this will fast become a regular meal in our house. It was so easy to prepare and took no time at all. We had it with mashed potatoes - what a great combination. I would recommend this to anyone and I will be sharing it with all my friends. The only (very minor) downside was that the cashews were a bit expensive. We're going to try it with peanuts next time.



An absolutely wonderful recipe! I went with the sweetened coconut and salted cashews as did some others. Also, since I noticed that many people seemed to have trouble getting the coating to stick, I added a beaten egg to the melted butter. It worked great! I used diced chicken and served it over a bed of lettuce to make Chicken Cashew Salad. Even my somewhat-hard-to-please husband loved it. It's going to be one of our new staple recipes.



This is a yummy recipe. I used smaller pieces of chicken to get more of the cashew coating per bite :) Also, I marinaded the chicken in coconut milk for a couple of hours prior to cooking to bring out that coconut flavor a little more. Thanks so much!
