Kung Pao Chicken Recipe

This recipe is amazing if you’re short on time, or just prefer to spice up your regular meals a bit more. This Kung Pao sauce is AMAZING, I am so happy it’s available at Kroger stores (I found mine at Kroger near the soy sauces). This recipe is packed with so many vegetables and white chicken as your protein, and is a great way to add more variety to your meals.

If you’re trying to eat vegetarian, simply omit the chicken, and double up on the peppers and feel free to add even more garlic and ginger.

This recipe is amazing! Great for 1-2 people, or great for a larger group!

Make this for your friends, they’ll never forget how good of a cook you are!
