Chicken – I prefer chicken thigh meat as it is more flavorful and moist. The well-liked Kung Bao Chicken is also made of chicken thigh meat. However, chicken breast could work too.

For Marinating the Chicken: Shaoxing wine, natural soy sauce (or dark soy sauce), freshly ground black pepper, arrowroot flour.

For Stir Fry: Green onions, ginger, garlic cloves, light soy sauce, natural soy sauce (or dark soy sauce), one green bell pepper, and one red bell pepper.

How to make a quick, easy broth using the chicken thigh bones left behind?

Because chicken thigh meat is more tender and tasty, I often use them for dishes such as Kung Bao Chicken and Chicken Stir Fry. For bone-in chicken thigh, you can cut out the meat from the bone.
