Chinese cuisine is one of our boys favorite takeout meals and yes their are occasions when we will splurge and grab some when we are going to be out late. But when we are at home this Kung Pao Chicken with Brown Rice hits the spot.
This meal was quick & easy and on the table in less than 20 minutes. Here’s a little tip…cut your chicken into chunks before freezing it, then your time in the kitchen will go even quicker.
We used a packet of Sun-Bird Hot & Spicy Kung Pao Chicken Seasoning Mix and even though the seasoning packet is called Hot & Spicy, even Liz, who isn’t crazy about spicy food, thought it was not spicy. The flavor is a lot like Hoisin Sauce, with it’s rich combination of sweet, salt and spicy flavors.
Hoisin Sauce is also a little expensive. I think the last bottle I bought was close to $4.oo, so paying less than $1 for a Sun-Bird seasoning packet is quite economical.
