~ Kung Pao Chicken ~

This is the first time I have ever made this any kind of Kung Pao Chicken, and it was GREAT!  The sauce was so incredible I couldn't get enough of it, kept dipping every BITE! :)

Ingredients: Kung Pao Chicken mix, Olive Oil, Rice Vinegar, Water, that's it!

 Directions: Take the small package out of the mix and set aside. Make the marinade by combining contents of large bag with 1/2 cup olive oil and 3 Tbsp rice vinegar. Place in large, gallon size re-seal able bag. Cut up 3 chicken breasts into bite size pieces and place inside the bag with marinade. Shake to coat and refrigerate for 1 hours.

Make the sauce by combining contents of small bag with 2 Tbsp of rice vinegar and 1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp of water ...

...in a small saucepan over medium heat. (I wait until chicken is ready to cook for this step). When mixture begins to bubble, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Right after I get the sauce starting to cook, I am ready for the chicken.

Discard marinade from chicken. Cook chicken pieces in skillet or on grill until cooked through. I imagine this is YUMMY on the grill but I just did this on the stove.

Serve chicken drizzled with sauce.  I forgot to take the final picture as we were anxious to chow down!
