kung pao (2)

1 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 cup broccoli florets
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/3 cup peanuts
1 clove garlic, minced
oil for sauteing

Marinade:
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon rice wine or rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon cornstarch

Sauce:
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine or rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon sesame oil

Combine cubed chicken with the marinade
marinate for about 30 minutes

Prepare the sauce and set aside

Heat the pan over high heat
add 1 tablespoon oil
when the oil is hot, add the chicken and stir-fry until it begins to brown
remove from pan and set aside

Heat an additional tablespoon of oil in the dirty pan
add the garlic and stir-fry until aromatic (about 30 seconds)
add chili flakes
add the sauce to the pan and bring to a boil
add the chicken back into the pan
add the broccoli and peanuts
combine, coating chicken well with sauce (I needed to add a splash of water to loosen up the sauce)

Makes 2 servings = 8 carbs each

#nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook Once a year I get to use my #enamal platter. Perfect for a #smallbatch Thanksgiving #audreycancook #persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question. I'm considering apple & persimmon #handpies a #smallbatch #audreycancook
