      Kung Pao Chicken is one of my favorite dishes. I have experimented with making a good Kung Pao as well as eating Kung Pao at some great restaurants and determined that the best Kung Pao that I enjoyed used a basic recipe like this post. Other recipes use Hoison and Chili garlic paste which in my opinion overwhelms the dish. I did double up on the ingredients for the sauce and added some orange bell peppers to sweeten the dish.
