    Oolala's Note:

    Saw this today! Didn't want to lose it. Here's what the description said: "Kung Pao-wer! Everyone knows steamed is the way to go when eating Chinese food out. But when you're home, well, steaming your Asian chicken is for the birds (not literally). Why? Because it's TOO easy to create a saucy, spicy, wonderful dish that has a tiny fraction of the calories and fat of restaurant versions. See below for proof -- and feel free to experiment using all sorts of other veggies (green beans, carrots, bean sprouts, broccoli) and lean protein (shrimp, lean steak, tofu, and even lean pork tenderloin ROCK Kung Pao style!)Serving Size: 1 heaping portion (half of recipe) Calories: 230 Fat: 4g Sodium: 720mg Carbs: 17g Fiber: 3g Sugars: 7g Protein: 30g

      My wife and I love this recipe. Pretty simple and healthier than nearly all other KP Chicken. We double it every time (but use a little less than double the chili sauce). The variant she loves is to make it using prepackaged broccoli slaw instead of the peppers & celery.

      I'm not big on Chinese food, but decided to give this one a try and I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't have garlic (so I used garlic powder), water chestnuts or celery (omit), but other than that, made recipe as it says. I did add 2 tsp of the chili-garlic sauce b/c I love the flavor so much, but would def only put 1 tsp next time b/c it was a bit too spicy for me. All in all, a very good and flavorful recipe.

      Very good. Next time will double the sauce. Added broccoli and cauliflower. Tweaked the cooking method a bit - did chicken in batches, removed from pan and then did broccolli, cauli and onions first, adding mushrooms and peppers later so they didn't overcook. Then threw chicken back in just before adding sauce.
