Kung Pao Chicken
Kung Pao Chicken – healthy homemade Chinese chicken in savory and spicy Kung Pao sauce. Best Kung Pao Chicken recipe ever, much better than takeout.
Kung Pao chicken is one of the most popular Chinese recipes. We all love the spicy and savory Kung Pao sauce, a cooking style from the Sichuan province of China. The authentic Kung Pao Chicken calls for Sichuan peppercorn for the numbing flavor, however the Kung Pao chicken we get here in Chinese restaurants is toned down, with vegetables such as carrots, water chestnuts, celery, zucchini, or broccoli in the dish.
My Kung Pao Chicken recipe is easy, authentic and delicious. The Kung Pao sauce is a bit spicy so feel free to cut down the quantity of dried chilies in the recipe. The secret ingredient of Kung Pao chicken is the Chinese vinegar in the sauce. You may use rice vinegar, red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar for equally delicious result.
