Kung Pao Chicken




Both my husband and I were in the mood for Asian tonight for dinner and year I tried a Crock Pot Kung Pao Chicken that was really good and pretty easy. I decided to use that same recipe but instead of the crock pot I made it into a stove top version. It was delish! If you like Asian Inspired dishes  then you will have to give this a try! Easy and so much healthier than the traditional take out version!
