Easy Delicious Kung Pao Chicken

melissa harris


This is a spicy recipe! Lots of ingredients but well worth it.

I find that once I had these ingredients in my cabinet, I was able to make this recipe several times over. My family loves it so we eat it alot! My favorite part is that it all cooks in one single skillet.

Great served over Rice!

How to Make Easy Delicious Kung Pao Chicken


  • 1Cut chicken into small peices. Cook in oil 5-10 minutes until cooked through. May season with additional garlic if you like. Set Aside. Add peanuts and stir fry until lightly brown. Set aside. Cover to keep warm.
  • 2In same skillet, stir fry brocolli, mushrooms, scallions, celery, bell pepper, garlic, red pepper flakes and dried chili peppers to desired tenderness. May need to add a bit more oil. (I use Olive oil) Pan scrapings add flavor, so don't by shy.
  • 3In the meantime, make Kung Pao sauce with remaining ingredients. Mix well and pour over vegetables in skillet. Turn heat up and stir until sauce thickens. Reduce heat to warm.
    Add Chicken and top with peanuts. Serve over rice.
