Cashew Chicken in Springfield, Missouri

Just got off the phone with a talkative MCI operator who recommended a weird Chinese/Midwestern hybrid dish called "cashew chicken" you find in the environs of Springfield Missouri.

It's deep fried nuggets of rather American-style fried chicken, served with cashews. Different from the Chinese restaurant saucy version we all know and mostly loathe, and I think it's served there in all sorts of eateries...not just Chinese.

Anybody know about this?
