See our newer and easier version of Kung Pao Chicken here:

Kung Pao Chicken (can also be transcribed as Gong Bao or Kung Po) or 宫保鸡丁 in Chinese, is a spicy stir-fry Chinese dish that originated from Sichuan, China.

This dish is usually prepared with chicken, peanuts, vegetables and chili peppers but the gong bao sauce has been used to created other gong bao dishes with other types of meat including frog and fish etc. For some unknown reason (really beats me), Kung Pao chicken is very popular in westernized Chinese cuisine.
