Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten Free and Dairy Free Kung Pao Chicken.

bought a coffee from the coffee bar at work today and it was in a Christmas cup!  I couldn’t believe it – it was red with Let It Snow printed on it – I love Christmas but man it is only September.  I then remembered that every year I promise myself I’m going to get ahead of the Christmas posts for the websites and start them early.  For the last 4 Christmas’s this hasn’t happened but maybe this year will be different.

As it’s Friday night and some of you might be missing a good Chinese takeaway I thought I would share this easy recipe for Kung Pao Chicken.  My favourite Chinese dishes always include chicken, spring onions and peanuts so this ticks all the boxes for me.
