    Great recipe! I’m not a big fan of ginger so in the future I may want to cut the ginger in half but other than that, it was a hit!

    This Kung Pao Chicken was very good! I made dinner for 4 people so I multiplied the recipe by 4 and it was a bit too gingery but that’s on my part. Either way, it came out very well!

    Used chicken thighs, doubled the sauce as advised and accidentally put 4x the amount of chilli flakes but tasted nice with a bit more of a kick!

    good thing i watched the video first. the written instructions tell you to stir-fry the chicken in sesame oil. fails to mention you fry the chicken first to get a crispy coating

    Great! Added some cucumber into the mix at the very end, which paired well with the (mildly) spicy.

    It tasted great but was dry. Didn't come out like a sticky sauce. Still tasted great!!

    It was good, but had to formulate the correct amount depending on the chicken

    Quick and tasty. Perfect for a nice easy meal. My tip, shake the chicken with the cornflour in a Tupperware container.

    Easy, delicious. Kung Pao can be too spicey, its nice that I can adjust the pepper. We enjoyed it very much. I also doubled the sauce.
