Kung Pao Chicken

Yield: serves 2

The Comrade wears many hats in the kitchen, but this Kung Pao version may be one of our favorite versions to date. Our Kung Pao sauce services all points of the palate––sweet, spicy, sour, and savory––to create a dish worth devouring in one sitting. Rice, veggies, plus a roundhouse kick of Comrade Cluck is where it’s at.


  • 10 oz Comrade Cluck 
  • ½ c rice 
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced thin 
  • ½ red pepper, sliced thin 
  • 1 small yellow onion, small diced 
  • ¼ c peanuts, chopped 


  • 1 T rice vinegar 
  • 1 T Hoisin sauce 
  • 2 t sambal 
  • 2 T soy sauce 
  • 1 t brown sugar

The How-To

  2. Cook rice according to package instructions. 
  3. Sauté Comrade Cluck in oil of choice until browned, set aside.
