For the Marinade
  • 3 Tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons of rice wine
  • 1½ teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1½ teaspoons of sesame oil
  • 2 packages of boneless, skinless chicken breasts (thin sliced)
For the Chicken Sauce
  • ¾ cups of chicken broth
  • 3 Tablespoons of sugar
  • 3½ Tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons of rice wine
  • 1½ Tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2½ teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1½ teaspoons of sesame oil
  • 3 Tablespoons of minced fresh ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons of minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon Sriracha sauce
  1. Cut the chicken breasts into bite-size pieces using kitchen scissors. Mix together the marinade ingredients and pour over the chicken. Use a spoon to turn the chicken and thoroughly coat in the marinade. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes in the fridge.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken pieces, creating one layer across the bottom of the skillet, and cook until nicely browned on either side- about 5 minutes. Remove the browned chicken from the pan, and continue to brown the chicken in batches until complete.
  3. Combine all of the sauce ingredients and whisk together in the same skillet you used to brown the chicken, Cook for one minute until it begins to thicken. Then add in your browned chicken and stir well to coat in the sauce.
  4. Allow to simmer for 5-8 minutes until the chicken is thoroughly cooked through. Serve the Kung Pao Chicken over a small bed of white or brown rice and spoon the sauce on top.
