KUNG PAO CHICKEN #vegetarian #mushroom #chicken #food #lunch

Kung Pao Chicken is a Chinese takeout great stacked with fiery chicken, peanuts, vegetables in a heavenly Kung Pao sauce. This simple custom made formula is solid, low in calories and far superior to takeout.

Kung Pao Chicken is from the Sichuan region in China. The Chinese name is 宫保鸡丁 (gong bao ji ding) however a few cafés spell it as Gong Bao Chicken or Kung Po Chicken.

This is a fiery chicken dish with a heavenly Kung Pao Sauce. It is prevalent at Chinese takeouts or cafés here in the United States.

Credible formula calls for Sichuan peppercorn for the desensitizing flavor and heaps of dried red chilies for the "mala" (fiery and desensitizing) flavors.

The Americanized rendition we arrive isn't true yet delectable. Vegetables, for example, carrots, water chestnuts, celery, zucchini and broccoli are a piece of the dish.
