Cashew Chicken for 30 people and instead of plain cashews I served Curried Cashews. These are so good I couldn't leave them alone. My guests wanted to eat the cashews out of the bowl instead of on the chicken dish. If you like curry at all these are stupendous! This would be great for a holiday nut dish. And they are very easy. Make multiples of the recipe if desired. I used an 8 oz. cans but I plan to make one of those big tubs of cashews that Costco sells for Christmas gifts.
Mix together in a bowl 1 1/4 tsp. curry powder. (my favorite is Spice Island) 1/8 tsp. each of onion and garlic powder and a dash of cayenne if you want a little bite. Melt 1 T. butter in a frying pan on medium heat. Add 8oz. salted roasted cashews. Stir fry for 3-5 min. until toasty brown. Be careful not to burn. Remove from heat and stir in the curry mix until evenly covered. Pour out on a sheet of wax paper until cool. Store in a glass jar.
