easy asian

I thought I would spread the love to you all with this yummy recipe my sister n law shared with me. This kung pao chicken recipe is the perfect combo of easy, simple ingredients, healthy, and super delish. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as I do.

Here are the things you will need:
3T Soy Sauce
1t ginger
1t sugar

1t corn starch
1/2t crushed red pepper
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2c water

1lb chicken breast (cut into 1in chunks)
3t veggie oil
1 onion
2 sm green peppers
2/3c roasted, unsalted peanuts

Here is what you will need to do:

1. In a small bowl, with a fork, combine the first 7 ingredients.

2. Transfer 2T of sauce into a medium bowl. Add chicken and toss. Marinate at room temp. for 10 min.

Warm 2t oil over heat until very hot. Add chicken and cook all the way through. About 5 min.

Remove chicken to plate.

Add 1t oil and heat until hot. Stir fly onion and bell peppers for about 5 min.

Pour remaining sauce over veggies and bring to a boil. Return chicken to skillet with peanuts and heat through.

Serve with brown rice and enjoy!

As the weather cools down, I think it is about time for chili, pot roast, and as much as I hate to admit it...meatloaf. Yes, I do love a good meatloaf. Classy huh? Don't judge.
