Claypot Kung Bao Boozy Frog Legs.

Kung Bao also transcribed as Gong Pao or Kung Po, is a spicy stir-fry Chinese dish made with chicken, peanuts, vegetables, and chilli peppers. This is a classic dish in Szechuan cuisine originated in the Szechuan province of south-western China and includes Szechuan peppercorns.

Although the Kung Pao dishes is found throughout China, there are regional variations that are typically less spicy than the Szechuan style. My ex-mother-in-law is from the Kangxi district and there the food is normally quite spicy. Kung Pao chicken is also a staple of westernised Chinese cuisine. 

In this dish I am using frog legs because I want to prove to my hubby that frog legs taste like chicken but much nicer.
