Ingredients
Directions

Coat a large saucepan, over medium heat, with oil and add the red pepper flakes. Toast until aromatic. Add the broth and water and bring to a light boil. Add remaining ingredients, reduce the heat and simmer for a few minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature. Add about 3 to 4 ladles of room temperature sauce to a resealable plastic bag and add the chicken. Let marinate for at least 1 hour.

Add the cornstarch to the remaining sauce and mix well.

Heat a large skillet or a flat top grill to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade. Cook the chicken in the hot skillet until cooked through and lightly browned. Add remaining sauce mixture and cook to desired consistency, coating the chicken well. Transfer to a serving bowl or platter.

Mix the onions and cilantro together in a small bowl.

Assembly:

Warm the tortillas. Fill with Kung Pao Chicken and top with onion/cilantro garnish and chopped peanuts.
