Kung Po Chicken

But I like calling it kung POW chicken. Because "George likes his chicken spicy!!!" Yes yes that was a gratuitous Seinfeld quote. I need to start cooking before I'm starving because instead of taking nice pictures with properly plated food I just throw it on a plate take a quick snap and start chowing!! So in the future I'll try to take some nicer pictures :) Ok now please enjoy the very spicy Kung Po Chicken. YUM



Ingredients
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 lb chicken, boneless/skinless cubed
1/4 cup green onions
1 tsp garlic, minced
1/4 cup carrots, thinly sliced with a mandolin or veggie peeler
2 tsp red pepper flakes (warning normal people only want to use 1 tsp :D )
1/2 cup Kung Pao sauce
1/3 cup peanuts
1 package boil in bag brown rice

Heat 1 Tbsp oil in wok or non-stick skillet over high heat. Toss chicken in cornstarch to coat and add to oil. Don’t begin stirring chicken until the bottom has turned golden brown. Then stir occasionally until all pieces are crispy (this is the key to good Kung Pao chicken - crispy chicken). Remove chicken from pan onto a plate covered with a paper towel.

Stir fry green onions, garlic, carrots, and red pepper flakes. Whisk 1/3 cup Kung Pao sauce with 1/4 cup water and add to skillet. Stir well and add chicken and peanuts, toss to coat. Serve immediately over brown rice.
