Made this tonight for dinner and it came out just right for my wife's taste although I prefer my Kung Pao a little spicier, so next time I will add some hot pepper flakes to my half and stir fry a bit longer. I might also experiment with using a bit more garlic/ginger and add some sliced onion to the mix. I didn't have any sherry so I used Marsala Wine instead. This was very good and at 5 WW points per serving it really can't be beat. Thanks mariposa13 for posting this, the recipe is a real keeper.
Very tasty and easy to prepare. The fresh ginger is a lovely addition. My chilis didn't have much heat; next time I'll add some pepper flakes. A great addition to our 3-under-300 diet.
Made for my family last week. My girls (7 and 4) loved it. Very flavorful and easy to make...
