Wonderful!!! Made as written the only thing I did was to add some chopped peanuts to the top. This was really quite easy to assemble...as a previous reviewer said once the prep work was done it goes together easily, quickly and so delicious. Definately a keeper. Thank you for posting.

This is such a great recipe for Kung Pao Chicken. My family loved this served atop brown and wild rice. The sauce gave the chicken mixture a wonderful flavor with just a hint of spice (I used 2 serrano peppers. (I can never seem to find red chilies at any store!!). I loved the sambal oelek addition! I also really loved the carrots and red pepper. Yummy combinations. This recipe took me closer to an hour. Maybe I was moving slowly!? Thanks for posting! Made for Spring PAC.
I saw loof's photo while hosting PAC this morning & I knew I had to make it. Unbelievably, I had all the ingredients on hand, down to the sambal, hoisin, fresh ginger & exactly 3 green onions. It was just meant to be, I guess. Don't let the long list of ingredients intimidate. It's basically a few bowls of mixtures that can easily be prepped & then cook time was so minimal. I left out the red chilies & used 1/2 teaspoon of the sambal, but by then it was so tame even my toddler could eat it. We all agreed that there will be a next time & I'll be able to kick it up a notch or two then. :) I'm really excited that I can now satisfy my kung pao craving with an easy & delicious homemade recipe. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Lazarus!
This is a great version of Kung Pao Chicken! I used Sambal Oelek , ground ginger, and a whole red pepper (instead of 1/2 red, 1/2 green), and served over rice. This was just spicy enough with great flavor. I'll probably add some peanuts next time. Thanks for posting this great recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2009
