    2                    double chicken breasts (4 pieces)
    1      Can           sliced water chestnuts
      1/2  Lb.           mushrooms
      1/2  C.            cashews -- salted or unsalted
    3      Tbsp.         sherry or white wine
    3      Tsp.          cornstarch
    1      Can           chicken broth
    1      Tbsp.         hoisin sauce -- (1 to 2)
    3      Pkg.          Ramen noodles (mushroom flavor)
    3      Tbsp.         cooking oil
    1      Dash          soy sauce
 
 Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes. Marinate in sherry, 1
 teaspoon cornstarch and dash of soy for 30 minutes. Heat oil
 in wok or large frypan. Add chicken (drained, save marinade)
 and stir-fry until cooked. Remove from pan and stir-fry
 mushrooms. Add most of broth to pan, saving enough to dissolve
 remaining cornstarch. Add hoisin sauce gradually, tasting to
 avoid making it too strong. Add more if desired. 
 Add cornstarch and broth; cook and stir until done, adding water
 chestnuts. Cook Ramen noodles, but use only 2 of the 3 flavor
 packages. At the last moment, add cashews just to heat and
 serve mixture over noodles.
 You can also add snow peas or other Chinese vegetables
 or use peanuts or walnuts.
