I was not impressed with this recipe. I thought since it has 700+ reviews & 4 1/2 stars, it'd be a sure thing, but alas, I was wrong. My husband ate it (but he'll eat almost anything) so it wasn't a total loss.
First, I had to triple the marinade & sauce recipe. Second, way too much sesame oil in the original recipe; I should've only used one tsp instead of the tbsp the recipe calls for. It tasted more like sesame chicken instead of kung pao chicken.
Third, this recipe uses way too much cornstarch. If you use the amount it calls for (like I did), it ends up way too pasty.
Usually if a recipe doesn't turn out well for me the first time, I'll tweak it & give it another go, but this recipe has no redeeming qualities without changing it altogether.
