Spicy Kung Pao Chicken Stir-Fry

chicken stir-fry

I am SO happy for two reasons: 1) it is Friday and 2) today I took my very last midterm in pharmacy school. Actually, it was my very last midterm ever *crosses fingers*. I came home and wanted to make something quick and easy for lunch, so I made this Kung Pao chicken stir-fry. I love stir-fry dishes because you can use so many different vegetables, and they always seem to just go together! I used Simply Asia Spicy Kung Pao Stir-Fry Sauce for the final touch, and it added just the right amount of spiciness and a great flavor to the veggies and chicken. Simply Asia and Thai Kitchen products are great when you want to serve something up quick, and they taste like restaurant quality. I served the stir-fry over jasmine rice, which goes great with just about any stir-fry dish! You can chop up the vegetables the night before you want to make this stir-fry dish for an even faster lunch or dinner.

What is everyone up to this weekend? I have a little break before I need to do some assignments, so I’m thinking day-trip tomorrow. Not sure where yet…

Next week (Feb 10) is the Chinese New Year, a 15-day celebration. It is really big in San Francisco. Since I moved here, I haven’t been to the parade in China Town, but I want to check it out! Do you do anything special for the Chinese New Year? I always enjoy the great FOOD!

Have a wonderful weekend!

    Congrats on your final mid-term! Pharmacy school is hard – I’ll bet most people don’t know you learn way more science than most doctors. (In a former life I was a college textbook sales rep – the premed P-Chem course usually used a “baby” book. The one for the pharmacy? The toughest books out there. Same with most other subjects.) Anyway, great looking dish! Have fun at the parade!

    I use the Simply Asia kit that comes in the bowl Kung Pao. It has the great noodles, and the sauce, and is SO EASY AND FAST. Never mind the rice for 20-40 minutes. The “oh so good gooey” noodles are in the 4 minute kit. Add sauted veggies and you have dinner for 2 or 4 or whatever… I know its pricey to get shredded cabbage, carrots, bagged broccoli garden salad………but what timesavers! Often at the 99 cent store, you can’t beat them.
