Before You Cook

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely chop water chestnuts. Pat chicken thighs dry, and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor. If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1" pieces. If using shrimp, pat dry. If using flank steak, separate steak into a single layer and pat dry. Season all proteins all over same amount.

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and stir occasionally until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Carefully transfer chicken to a mixing bowl, leaving excess oil in pan. Stir in half the kung pao sauce and honey until well-coated. Taste, and add remaining kung pao sauce if desired. Set aside. If using shrimp, follow same instructions and cook until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side. If using flank steak, follow same instructions and stir occasionally until no pink remains, 4-6 minutes. While chicken cooks, cook vegetables.
