Kung Pao Chicken

Chinese cuisine is one of our boys favorite takeout meals and yes there 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 hits the spot. Quick and easy to get on the table when you are in a hurry on those busy weeknights. This recipe does have a little zip to it, but can be easily adjusted to suit your taste.

I bet you have all the ingredients in your pantry too!
