Kung Pao Chicken is the bane of my culinary existence. It’s so much more than chicken, peanuts, chili peppers, and some brown sauce. I have made a dozen versions of this and none of them have been a home run worthy to be called Kung POW chicken, so then Kung pew-pew-pew chicken it is. Mine is good, but I’m on a quest to make it better. My gold standard for Kung Pao Chicken is at Peking Gourmet Inn.
