First, let me say, kung pao is my husband's current favorite dish. And that the only place he's found that it's good is P.F. Chang's. So, to suprise him yesterday, I made this. It was so easy to make, AND it was delicious. My husband was amazed - and said it was one step below P.F. Chang's, but above every other Chinese restaurant we've tried around here. I thought it was better. Next time, I will double the sauce, so that there is something to put on the chicken. And I will make it a bit hotter...I'll beat P.F.Chang's with this yet! Fantastic dish, PanNan, thank you.
