Kung Pao Chicken


I been to Panda express recently,had yummy food...I am not big fan of burgers and fast food..I never felt so happy with many US food joints,it never suited my taste buds(???!!)...But American-Chinese rocks..They cook instantly and serve with lots of veggies(good ,isn't it?)...I bought kung pao chicken and fried rice...Soon i wanted to have again,i tried it at home..It was three fourth of its original taste
