Hunan chicken is the starter which my family loves to order when we eat out.. Few days back when we had it last from restaurant mom asked me ” why can’t you try this at home??”


That day i decided to try this wonderful recipe at home with the help of  the taste i carried from there..so here’s my version of Hunan Chicken which I created from the taste I carried out from the restaurants):

Today I am taking this to Angie’s Fiesta Friday party.. This is my second time.. Last time I thoroughly enjoyed meeting new friends and new tastes..? Its really fun and Rocking…thank you so much Angie for this great party!!?
