Kung Powwwww

Restaurant - Chinese

My favorite dish has always been Kung Pao Chicken.  It can be kind of hard to make it, but I found an easy-to make version that is great!

Trust me, your kids will love this stuff! It is one of the most popular dishes and not that hard to make.

The Ingredients of Kung Pao Chicken

1lb boneless-skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1 pieces)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons sesame oil
3 tablespoons green onions (chopped up)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
1/3 cup dry roasted peanuts

The Cooking Instructions for Kung Pao Chicken

Step 1 - combine chicken and cornstarch in a small bowl and toss until it is coated. Then, heat sesame oil in a pan (a wok if you want to get really into it) over medium heat, and add chicken. Stir fry for about 6 minutes or until it is no longer pink inside. Then remove the chicken from wok.

Step 2 - Add green onions, garlic, red pepper flakes and powdered ginger to the pan and stir fry for about 15 seconds.

Step 3 - Combine vinegar, soy sauce and sugar in a small bowl. Mix it well and then add the sauce to the pan.
 
Step 4: Return the chicken to the wok and coat it with sauce. Stir in roasted peanuts (assuming no one is allergic to them). Heat thoroughly and top it with additional green onions if you desire. Serve this over white rice and your set!
