Cashew Chicken and Broccoli with Noodles

This dish is one of our family’s go-to dinners that we have been making for years. It is the only reason that we keep a stock of ramen noodles in the pantry.

Everyone loves the peanut flavor and happily eats all the veggies along with the chicken and noodles.

I know all kids are different and picky in many ways, but this is definitely one to try if you’ve got lots of picky eaters at your house!

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring
    blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
    Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.
