    Shire Born's Note:

    This classic Sichuan staple has gone through many transformations, including the changing of its politically incorrect name (Kung Pao) to something a little more mainstream (Gong Bao Ji Ding) and the alteration of ingredients (Sichuan peppercorns are a traditional ingredient, but rarely used in Western recipes, due to the ban that only ended in 2005). But the basic dish, with its complex flavors and burst of heat, is at its core a party in your mouth that deserved to outlast all the changes.

      When the chicken is marinated, heat the oil in a wok over high heat until the oil reachs 400 degrees. Stir the chicken to separate, add to the oil and stir again.
