Kung Pao Chicken

Such a long time break from kitchen and now i’m back! Glad to be active in kitchen, as usual. Today, as there is no class on Saturday, i quickly plan what to cook. Find Kung Pao Chicken recipe on one of youtube videos, so it comes to my list.

Anyway, this is my first-try, then i learned several things. Those hot oil that spike towards me while adding black peppercorn as well as the combined sauce. WOW, it scared me! Well, the result is worth it though.
