    marisk's Note:

    I'm hoping this is as good as the Kung Pao Shrimp I had at PF Chang's! There's been a lot of comments about this being salty. You might want to omit the salt and use low salt ingredients.

      This is a really good version of Kung Pao, PF Chang's or otherwise. Next time, I'm going to try to go a little more authentic, with celery, carrots, water chestnuts, etc. Served it with brown rice. I didn't think it was that salty, either. Try this one out!

      Great Meal!! PF Changs Kung Pao is my favorite - this did not look quite the same but was just as delicious. It was a tad salty alone but I served it over unsalted brown rice and it was perfect.

      This was a huge hit with my family. We loved it atop rice. The flavor was excellent! There was a hint of "heat" without being too spicy for my family I didn't have a problem with the recipe being salty; I used low-sodium soy sauce and omitted the salt. This is such a simple and quick way to make Kung Pao chicken and pretty healthy, too. This recipe will be heading to my "best of the best" file. P.S. I had steamed broccoli on the side, and found that I liked mixing the broccoli into the Kung Pao. Yum!
