Chinese Take-Out Kung Pao Chicken
50 mins (prep 25, cooking 25)
16 ingredients
4 servings
This is just as good as any Chinese restaurant! ---one tablespoon of hot chile paste will give you a medium-high heat, if you prefer a less spicy flavor then reduce the hot chile paste, this is very hot! I would strongly suggest to double the sauce ingredients or use 2 pounds of chicken and double the sauce x4. Add in some baby corn, mushrooms, peas or other veggies if desired. This can also be made using thinly sliced beef in place of chicken
