I have tried and tried for years to get this recipe from my favourite Chinese Szechuan Restaurant and there it is in today's newspaper!!! We have even had a Recipezaar get togethers to try and pick the ingredients! From Double Eight Chinese Restaurant in Broadbeach. Thanks to Joan and John Mei. Can also be called Kung Pao Chicken or Gong Bao Chicken but I have gone with the original restaurant name.
