1 1/2 pounds
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into cubes
salt and pepper to taste
Chinese five-spice powder, or to taste
Asian (toasted) sesame oil
1 1/2 teaspoons
Chinese five-spice powder
vegetable oil, divided
red pepper flakes, or to taste
roasted peanuts, or to taste
This was very good Kung Pao Chicken. It is spiced perfectly. If you read the recipe it clearly states to add red peppers to taste. So if you like your Chinese food spicy, throw in a tablespoon of red pepper. Also, if you don't like so much sweet cut the brown sugar in half. I did not have Chinese five-spice powder but is easy enough to make if you have the ingredients in your kitchen, and it a must. Will be making this on a regular basis.
The kung- pao chicken tastes good, but it is not as good as Panda Express, it needs more spice.
not bad but not great either
Too sweet - not spicy enough. The sauce is really thick - sorry but this is not the recipe for us.
I've made this several times, and not only is it delicious, it's a very flexible recipe. Sometimes I have more or less chicken, sometimes no green onions, sometimes I make extra sauce, sometimes I don't add the peanuts. No matter what, the flavor is wonderful! No idea if it's authentic, but it's good.
This recipe was good, but I took off a star because it doesn't taste like the kung pao I'm used to (with a reddish sauce). It was good, and pretty much tasted of the Chinese five spice powder. I also added a yellow pepper and a lot more celery. Overall, a good meal but not quite the kung pao I was looking for.
Amazing! I used only two green onions, and about a cup of peanuts which I did not
It was OK but not enough vegetables for me.
