Kung Pao Chicken Recipe

Kung Pao Chicken Recipe
Here’s the recipe you all might have been waiting for – the legendary Kung Pao Chicken! I have wanted to make this for the longest time but have just finally got around to doing so now. Kung Pao chicken first originated in central-western China and has become very popular in the United States. This is the westernized version of kung pao chicken consisting of wok fried chicken pieces, roasted peanuts, scallions and a spicy sauce. For those of you that have been waiting for a Chinese chicken recipe that doesn’t use a deep fryer – this is it. Even though you can deep fry the chicken pieces this time we are frying the chicken in the wok. Ingredients:1lb boneless-skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1” pieces) 1 tablespoon cornstarch 2 teaspoons sesame oil 3 tablespoons green onions (chopped) 3 garlic cloves (minced) ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes ½ teaspoon powdered ginger 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 2 tablespoons soy sauce 2 teaspoons sugar 1/3 cup dry roasted peanuts

Chinese Lemon Chicken Most sane people keep a drawer full of delivery menus for the sole purpose of...ordering delivery. I too have a menu drawer, but can count on two hands the number of times I have actually ordered delivery in the past few years. Call me a bad New Yorker.

Honey Soy Chicken Wings I first made these honey soy chicken wings a few years ago when I was working long hours in San Francisco. I wanted a nice comforting dish that didn't involve standing in front of the stove for too long. And preferably something that could be reheated easily the next day.

They are as delicious as they are easy, packed with flavor from the honey, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, and soy sauce. Try them out and let me know what you think!
