Sichuan-Style Chicken with Peanuts

The piquant Sichuan Sauce (which doubles easily) works well with almost any stir-fry but particularly enhances dishes with meat, fish and poultry. When stir-frying chicken, always spread the pieces in the wok and let them cook undisturbed for 1 minute before stirring. This allows the chicken to sear and prevents sticking. To smash the ginger, use the side of a cleaver or chef's knife.

Loved it! Easy and pretty fast to make!


Delicious -- I doubled the sauce (had more chicken and snap peas than the recipe called for) and it turned out beautifully. Everyone loved it, even my step-mom who was "afraid" of Chinese food so had never tried it. My boyfriend said that the leftovers were even better the next day!


I made this last night for my family and they LOVED it. It is very kid friendly meal which make things easyer for me. The only thing i would do different is make extra sauce on the side for the kids to dip in, but as for me it was perfect and delicous!
