Kung Pao Chicken

This is one of the best stir fries I have ever made. I loved the broccoli slaw in it which is only the 2nd time I have ever used it. If I were at an Asian restaurant & served this dish, I would have been 100% satisfied. The Szechuan makes it very spicy so if you want to use this recipe as a base but with another sauce you could. BUT if you & your man like things spicy & are without the kids one night this would be a true winner. We're still talking about the dish right?

The rice in the pic is some of the best I've tried. I try to stick to whole grain brown but when recipes like this call for a nice white rice, I just love Jasmine or Jasmati. Doesn't have to be organic though, I just grabbed it. I could eat a pot of it plain with my fingers. Not that I have ever done that............



1 lb. boneless skinless chicken, cut into small pieces
1 tbsp. oil
1 (1 lb.) bag broccoli slaw
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup spicy Szechuan stir-fry sauce
1 Tbsp. honey

Heat oil in heavy skillet or wok. Add broccoli slaw & stir fry 5 minutes until crisp tender. I like mine a little softer so I cooked it longer. Remove from skillet & set aside.

Add chicken to skillet. Stir fry over medium high heat for about 5 minutes until browned. Add bell pepper & water. Cover & cook for 4 minutes until chicken is tender. Add stir fry sauce, honey & broccoli slaw. Cook & stir for 2-3 minutes until hot. Serve over hot cooked rice. Serves 4.

I am halfway through Eclipse. Lots of stories in this one & I tend to read them over & over. But I am showing restraint. Great weekend but I am feeling a bit in a funk. I'm going to go over comments from the past couple of days & like always, I am sure you're going to put me in a great mood again. Thanks in advance!!!!

It's the books I'm so sorry to say. I was totally in a funk after reading these books. My life was on hold for a month and it didn't help that no mere mortal (like my husband) could ever compare to Edward. My other friend who read them also ended up in a funk and it took her a week after finishing the series to get over it. Same story with me. It was a small price to pay overall but still, there was a price. I'm sorry you're feeling bad. Cheer up, you're an awesome mom, wife, friend, and cook! You have so much to be grateful for.

Sounds easy and looks good--Kung Pao chicken always reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where George eats it and sweats a lot...anyways Thanks for the recipe!

AVT Coach said...

The dish looks great and I kind of agree with Keira, could be the Twilight bum! The books didn't bum me but the idea that they were soon over did. Great strategy to read old posts and comments! I love your posts and you keep me laughing. I hope I can be an encouraging word for you!

Deanna said...
