    Chicken kept sticking, most of the flour came off....needed much more oil.

    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!

    Really tasty and easy to make. i added more sauce ingredients cause i prefered to have more of a gravy.

    Sauce is good but the chicken needs to be marinate it

    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!!

    Easy weeknight meal. I doubled the sauce as suggested.
    Yummly User a year ago
    It was good, but had to formulate the correct amount depending on the chicken
    Yummly User a year ago
    Quick and tasty. Perfect for a nice easy meal. My tip, shake the chicken with the cornflour in a Tupperware container.
    Yummly User a year ago
    really tasteful next time I'll try to make more sauce
    Yummly User a year ago
    Did not look anything like picture and not enough flavour or spice.

    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.
    Yummly User a year ago
    Doubled the sauce and came out perfect
    Yummly User a year ago
    Doubled the sauce. It’s delicious
