Newt! Zonk! Kung Pao!
It sounds like something out of a Batman comic, but it’s actually really tasty!
We followed the instructions here, but added a cup of water to the sauce before adding the chicken to simmer so it wouldn’t thicken up too much. That was probably a good idea.
Also, we did add water chestnuts, but they weren’t a crowd favourite. Next time we’re thinking of adding fresh vegetables instead.
We also pared back the chilli by a bit, and it came out with a really nice ‘hot’ taste that wasn’t overpowering.
For the sauce, we made twice as much sauce by accident which was probably a good idea – you don’t want it thickening up I would imagine.
We’ll definately be making this again – 4 noms out of 5 – nom nom nom nom.
