WATCH: This Spicy, Tangy Kung Pao Chicken Pasta Is Better Than Takeout
This homemade version is just as good.
Spicy, tangy, and loaded with chicken and peanuts, we love that there are so many flavors in this recipe.
This homemade version of this favorite fast-food pasta dish will make you wish you could have it every day! It's an easy recipe that creates a flavorful spaghetti sauce. What's so great about this recipe is the fact that you can make the sauce ahead of time.
Here's what you do: always have a pack of dried spaghetti, a bag of garlic peanuts, and some boneless chicken pieces in your freezer at all times. Then make sure you double or even triple the recipe for the sauce and store it in a resealable jar in the refrigerator.
Once you have all that, you will never go hungry for your favorite pasta dish because in the same amount of time it takes to cook the pasta, your sauce, chicken, and peanuts will be ready to toss with it. (Then sure, you can go ahead and eat it right from the pan if you want.)
Get ready to become hungry because here's the recipe:
What's even better is that there other ways to enjoy the kung pao sauce. No pasta? Just toss it with the chicken and you'll have a fantastic stir-fried dish instead to pair with rice! No chicken? Use shrimps! Got neither chicken nor pasta? Use pancit canton!
