Ok, so I'm a Chinese food NUT. I seriously have to eat it about once a WEEK or at LEAST every 10 days, or I start throwing things. :rolleyes:

Now I normally get the sweet and sour chicken....and I HAVE found a recipe for gluten free tempura (traditionally, they used rice flour...NOT wheat flour...who knew!?!?!)....but this week, I simply was NOT ready to tackle that one!

I started thinking and googling...I decided on Cashew chicken.

Ok, I never use measuring spoons and the like, unless I'm baking...so everything is approximate on this...besides, I didn't feel like it made QUITE enough food...it BARELY fed 3 adults....next time I'm going to make a little more.

Ok, so I used 3 chicken breasts...cut into strips before I sauteed them.

I sauteed them in peanut oil for that Chinese flavor that we all adore so very very much!

I also sauteed about a half cup of cashews.

Then I mixed chicken broth, gluten free soy sauce, cornstarch, salt & pepper, and MSG (I KNOW it's BAD, but you GOTTTTTA have it in Chinese food!) *sheepish face*

I took the chicken and the cashews out of the skillet when they were finished cooking and added the liquids, stirring until it thickened. (NOT very long!)

Then I added the chicken and cashews BACK into the sauce and added chunks of pineapple.

O.M.G!!! It was SO GOOD! I was so surprised at how CLOSE it was to the cashew chicken that we used to order from the local Chinese delivery place!

Oh, and I'm not a big fan of Chinese veggies, but I'm SURE that they would spice this up QUITE NICELY...should you be so inclined to add them. :D

I sincerely HOPE that some Chinese Takeout ADDICT like myself stumbles upon this and MAKES IT! I canNOT get over how good it was! Enjoy!

I recently stumbled on a recipe that I love. Basically you stir fry whatever you want, marinate your meat in this:

1/4 Cup Wheat free Soy or Tamari Sauce

1/4 Cup of water

1/4 Cup of sweetener (such as honey, if you use it)

2 cloves of garlic

1-2 Tbl of Cornstarch mixed with water to thicken marinade later.

At the end I pour in the left over marinade and add enough of the cornstarch to get it thickened.

It tastes just like House Special Chicken from Pickup Stix.

Sometimes I skip the marinating time or just marinate while I'm stir-frying the veggies, and it doesn't seem to be a big issue.
