Kung Pao Chicken is a very popular dish in summer. It sells for 58 yuan in the restaurant. There are still many people ordering it, which shows how popular it is. Today the author teaches everyone to cook authentic Gongbao chicken at home. The cost is less than 10 yuan. It is a hot and sour appetizer. Both adults and children in our family love to eat it. Dad eats wine and mother eats food. They are full of praise. Every time my father sees me making this dish, he will find a good bottle of wine and drink it tastefully. He said that the dishes I cooked are better than those made by my mother, and the dishes made by my mother are too light. I'm boring to drink, my mother will be jealous when I hear it, haha!

Every time I go to the supermarket and encounter fresh chicken breasts, I buy a few pieces and put them in the refrigerator. When I have time, I will cook for my dad. When I was young, I especially liked the dishes I cooked. Now my dad loves the dishes I cook. Father and daughter often have endless words, and my mother often said that I was my dad’s intimate little padded jacket.

No matter how much wronged you are outside, as long as you return home to eat with your family, drink and chat, talk and laugh, it seems that you have no troubles. I like to cook for my family, and I will be very satisfied when I see them eating happily.

Now let’s share the detailed method of this Gongbao chicken with everyone. Just follow the steps and novices can do it all at once. Collect it! This dish does not need to be fried, it is simple and healthy, and your family will definitely like it too.

1. First wash the chicken breast and dice, add 1 gram of salt, a little thirteen incense, 1 tablespoon of cooking wine and stir well, then add 4 grams of cornstarch and stir well, and finally pour in a little peanut oil, stir well, and marinate for a while.

Tip: The chicken breasts that have been marinated in advance are fried and tender and fragrant. They are more delicious than those fried in restaurants, so this step must not be ignored!

3. Wash the cucumber and dice; peel the ginger and garlic, wash and dice; soak the dried chili for a few minutes and then cut it into small sections with scissors, and shake off a little chili seeds.

Tips: The dried chili must be soaked for a few minutes first, otherwise it will be battered. Throwing off some chili seeds is to look good, and the other is to avoid battering. The quantity of this chili is large and it is not very spicy. Put less.
