Kung Pao Chicken 4

I don’t now about you but I love anything noodle and always find it hits all my cravings. It’s both satisfying and comforting in just one little twirly forkful!!

Kung Pao Chicken 2

This recipe is another way to use the same sauce I made for my Kung Pao Wings. I’ve had so many people ask me for this sauce recipe or suggestions on other ways it could be used that I thought I’d help out by creating something new.

First things first, boil your eggs and get them pickling. The longer they sit in the beet juice the greater the colour pink they become.

Next thing I suggest doing is making both sauces. Once they’re made the recipe comes together very quickly. This time I’ve used a simple sweet and spicy slurp sauce but you could definitely toss the noodles in a spicy peanut sauce as well!

Most people like things that cook quickly and this definitely could be one of them. I suggest making a double batch of the sauces and refrigerating them for future use. They could easily be kept for 4 weeks in a tightly sealed container.

Kung Pao Chicken 3

I used basic spaghetti for this recipe but any noodle from rice to soba could be used.

I added green onions, red peppers and shredded carrots to my noodles but the possibilities are endless. Edamame, peas, bok choy, asparagus or mushrooms are just a few suggestions.
