We have an amazing year-round Farmers’ Market on Cleveland’s West Side… you can find great deals on all sorts of produce and find just about any meat or spice you could possibly ever want.
I call this recipe Farmers’ Market Kung Pao Chicken because it works really well with any produce you can find at your farmers market.
This week I found 3 large peppers for $1 … they worked great in this dish.
This meal is so simple and delicious! Serve with rice noodles or rice.
