“Our twist on a Chinese classic with garlic, scallions, peanuts and hot red chilies.”

I love eating at California Pizza kitchen – they actually have a pretty great gluten – free menu ( total side note) but I do find eating out to be costly so I try and make the dishes my family enjoys at home.

Eric loves the Kung Poa Spaghetti so I decided to make it at home. What I liked about it the most is HOW much it made – seriously it ended up being a whole dinner the next night – it heats up very well.

I know it looks like A LOT of ingredients but do not worry most of them are already in your pantry. You will need about 1 pound of cooked chicken breast – I just cooked mine on the stove top with simple pepper and salt. But feel free to use up any leftover chicken you might have.

This dish is perfect for a family of 6 – we are using one pound of pasta and adding a ton to it

What I love about this recipe is that I was able to make the sauce the night before – I love being able to put a dish together very easily.
