You need to rename the dish... No Kung Pao chili's? That is NOT kung Pao chicken, I'm sorry. The chili paste could potentially make the difference, but you don't even specify what brand/kind of chili paste. I have no less than 12 DIFFERENT chili flakes, powders, pastes and whole chilis in my kitchen now, and NONE of them are even close to Kung Pao, except actual kung pao chilis (I grow mine in the back yard). I'm sure this recipe is tasty, but it is not specific enough to make it as Kung Pao Chicken, as that is a VERY specific dish with a main ingredient in the name of the dish that you just conveniently left out. This is up there with the rest of the American shortcut cooking that has failed to come even close to the dish you claim to be making. When PF Chang's did something similar, at least they had the wherewithal to change the name of the dish so that those of us that know the difference wouldn't revolt.
