Cashew Chicken

Chris has been staying with me this week, and we both love stir fry, so we made Cashew Chicken the other day. I used to work at Hy-Vee in high school, and when I worked in the evenings, I would often get delicious, greasy cashew chicken for dinner. This recipe satisfied that same craving while being much lighter. The sauce ingredients weren't too exotic- it was all stuff that I already had on hand, like rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, and ginger. 

Chris mixed the sauce while I chopped, and we were sitting down to dinner within about half an hour. I loved the nutty crunch of the cashews and the freshness of the green onions on top. It definitely satisfied my desire for takeout!
