Paleo Chinese Chicken Stirfry – Gong Bao Ji Ding Recipe (Kung Pao)

Paleo Chinese Gong Bao Ji Ding kung pao chicken recipe

This is a dish that my parents made a lot during my childhood, and in Chinese, it’s known as Gong Bao Ji Ding (宫保鸡丁). It’s also a popular dish in America, and you’ll find it in a lot of Chinese restaurants as Kung Pao Chicken.

It’s quick to make and can be pretty spicy! So, check out this recipe and bring some authentic and healthy Chinese food into your diet.


Gong Bao Ji Ding is traditionally made with peanuts, but you can change that to cashews instead (or omitted it completely).

We also like to make Gong Bao Ji Ding a little bit less spicy. So we put fewer dried red chilies in and instead add in other vegetables for added crunch and color.
