Author's Notes

Double the sauce if you like your Kung Pao Chicken really saucy

The cornstarch will act as a barrier against the high heat of the wok, keeping the chicken super tender.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Pour Light Soy Sauce (2 Tbsp) , Corn Starch (1 Tbsp) , Salt (1/2 tsp) , and Ground Black Pepper (1 dash) over the Tyson® Chicken Breasts (1.5 lb) then stir until the chicken is well coated with the marinade. Allow marinating at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
Step 2
In a small bowl, prepare the sauce by combining Light Soy Sauce (2 Tbsp) , Rice Vinegar (1 Tbsp) , Hoisin Sauce (1 Tbsp) , Brown Sugar (1/2 Tbsp) , Dark Soy Sauce (1 tsp) , Sesame Oil (1/2 Tbsp) , Corn Starch (1 tsp) , and Sriracha (1/2 Tbsp) .
Step 3
Heat Cooking Oil (2 Tbsp) in a wok over medium-high heat. Add Green Bell Pepper (1) and Dried Red Chili Peppers (6) . Stir-fry slowly, allowing the skin of the bell pepper to blister, then remove the peppers and dried chili from the wok.
Step 4
Add the remaining Cooking Oil (2 Tbsp) if the wok is too dry, add the marinated chicken in a single layer. Stir-fry in two batches if needed (don't overcrowd the wok).
Step 5
Allow the chicken to sear for about 1 minute before flipping them over and stir-frying the batch.
Step 6
When the chicken is mostly cooked, add Garlic (2 cloves) and Fresh Ginger (2 Tbsp) to the wok. Stir-fry until the chicken is cooked all the way through, then add Dry Roasted Peanuts (1/4 cup) .
Step 7
Give the sauce a quick stir, then pour all of the sauce into the wok. Return the bell pepper and chilies to the wok. Stir to combine all ingredients.
Step 8
Turn off the heat and add the Scallions (2 stalks) .
Step 9
Transfer to a serving dish. Serve immediately over steamed white or bronw rice.
