As is true of many Chinese dishes, the most difficult part of the recipe is in the sauce, and making it can be daunting for the home cook. But now, dishes such as Kung Pao Chicken are easy to make at home when using a purchased bottled sauce, such as Annie Chun’s Kung Pao sauce. Traditional Kung Pao sauce is made with naturally brewed soy sauce, roasted sesame oil, ginger, garlic and chili.
