Check on the "Ethnic Foods" forum here - I believe there was a recent thread on that exact recipe.

Chilli paste with soya bean oil
Sesami oil
Vegetable oil
Oyster sauce
Soy sauce
Black sweet sauce
Fish sauce
Sugar

All of those ingredients except the black soy sauce can be found in most well-stocked regular supermarkets these days.

But I doubt fire's Chinese takeout place uses fish sauce or chili paste.

Every restaurant's chicken with cashews will taste different. There isn't a universal recipe, though most of the time they utilize a typical brown sauce which is based on soy sauce, beef broth, oyster or hoisin sauce, sugar and corn starch.

I'd probably lean towards Oyster/Abalone sauce in a chicken recipe. Have we tried this? (I don't know what fire34fighter is currently using, so I can't really ascertain what might be the diff)

I believe this is the sauce you are looking for:

cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon mirin
2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch

Heat until cornstarch thickens. Serves 1.
