Easy Cashew Chicken

I got this recipe from a friend a few years ago, and it has become a family favorite. She called it nutty chicken cubes, but I always use cashews, so at our house it is Cashew Chicken. It is really fast to make, so start your rice cooking early. (I say that because tonight I forgot and we were sitting  around with our mouths drooling waiting for the rice to cook.)
