  • Kung Pao chicken (also spelled Kung Po chicken) is a classic dish in Sichuan cuisine, originating in the Sichuan Province of central-western China. The dish is named after Ding Baozhen (1820–1886), a late Qing Dynasty official. Born in Guizhou, Ding served as head of Shandong province and later as governor of Sichuan province. His title was G�?ng Bǎo (宮�?), or palatial guardian. The name "Kung Pao" chicken is derived from this title.

    The dish exists in both traditional Sichuan and Westernized versions; the latter is more popular in the United States and Canada.
