Springfield Style Cashew Chicken

If you are from the Southwest, Missouri Springfield Style Cashew Chicken has been a staple for you since you were a child. David Leong migrated from Guangdong, China in 1940, and after serving our country in World War 2 David came back to the Ozarks. Noting Ozarkian’s love for fried chicken, David decided to try a new spin on the classic Chinese dish Cashew Chicken. Cashew Chicken is traditionally a stir-fry dish made with chunks of chicken, vegetables and a light sauce. David decided to take chunks of fried chicken, cover them in his new oyster sauce inspired Cashew sauce, and top it with a handful of cashews, and green onions. Springfield Style Cashew Chicken became wildly popular.

In 1963 David Leong opened the first Chinese restaurant in Springfield, Missouri, Leong’s Teahouse. Upon seeing the success of Leong's Teahouse many new Chinese - Cashew Chicken centered restaurants began opening in the Springfield area. It wasn't long before Springfield Style Cashew Chick spread across the United States and soon after the globe to David's home country of China.
