Cashew Chicken (From My Great Recipe Cards)

“This is an elegant, yet inexpensive, company dish, especially if you have learned to bone chicken breasts yourself. Salted sunflower nuts can be substituted for the cashew nuts, if desired. I have not yet made this recipe. I posted it as a request from another ZMember. *Note, cooking time does not include marinating time.”
