Kung Pao Chicken

When we lived in the country there was a little Chinese restaurant in a neighboring village and we would sometimes go there for a quick meal and I always ordered this.  Authentic, definitely not, but it was good and our choices were very limited unless I cooked. Our village … Continue reading
