Healthier Kung Pao Chicken that’s better than takeout
This entire winter, I’ve been dragging my sleepy self out of bed by 6am every Saturday morning for long runs under the fierce Minnesotan weather that has stubbornly refused to lighten up.
Every single time, I re-ask my exhausted brain why I keep doing this to myself.
After moving forward as fast as my Nikes will go for 3 hours on snow and ice, I’m pretty much useless the rest of the day. I end up scatterbrained all afternoon and doing wonky things like drowning my earbuds in the washing machine.
Hubby had me try resuscitating those soaked earbuds by immersing them in a bag of uncooked rice. And wouldn’t you know…it did the trick. My earbuds somehow work beautifully again, thanks to rice.
I’m totally not advising anyone to bury their electronics in jasmine rice, but I am giving you something delicious to accompany that rice instead: this awesome Kung Pao Chicken.
This Kung Pao Chicken recipe is one of those chicken recipes that your family will gobble up as quickly as you dish it up. It’s fast, healthy, and way better than takeout…
