I am collecting my recipes. The ones I love. The ones I have adapted to suit the way I am eating now. It is ridiculously frustrating to forget how I fixed a recipe last time and where did I write it down? So I put it here and I can find it when I need it. So thanks for you patience with all my recipes and please accept my apologies for no pictures.
Kung Pao Chicken-- Paleo Style
Chicken & Marinade
2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1 Tablespoon coconut aminos (soy sauce)
1 Tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon sesame seed oil
Sauce & Veggies*
3 Tablespoons coconut aminos (soy sauce)
3 Tablespoons vinegar
2 Tablespoons Hoisin Sauce (recipe here)
1 can water chestnuts, drained
1 onion chopped
1 clove garlic, pressed
2 bell peppers, diced
1/4 cup peanuts (paleo style use almond or pecan pieces)
chili garlic sauce
Marinate chicken in vinegar, coconut aminos, salt and sesame oil for 20 minutes. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Drain chicken, and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.
Chop vegetables. In a large skillet, stir fry garlic, onion and peppers until softened. Add water chestnuts, aminos and Hoisin Sauce. Add cooked chicken and peanuts to the skillet and stir to combine.
I put the garlic chili sauce on the table so each person can add as much heat as they desire.
* if you love a thickened sauce for your Asian food and tolerate cornstarch well, double the liquid ingredients in the sauce and add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Cook to thicken the sauce.
