Szechuan Chicken

Szechuan Chicken

I made this some time ago, and it was soooo good. The husband and I both loved it.  We both like things pretty spicy so this was just right for us. I served it with fried rice as a side. Definitely a dish I will be making again soon.

The Recipe:

  • 1 lb chicken breast, cut into small strips
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, cut into thin long strips
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into thin long strips
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce
  • 2 tbsp white wine
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp chili powder

Season chicken with salt, pepper and chili powder.  In a skillet heat olive oil and add the seasoned chicken and cook until chicken is no longer pink.  Remove chicken from skillet.  Add garlic, ginger, onion, and bell pepper to skillet and saute for a couple minutes until onion is cooked. Add chicken back to skillet.  In a bowl, mix together the soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, white wine, and chicken broth.  Add the soy sauce mixture to the skillet and stir continuously. Continue cooking for 3 minutes. Add hot sauce if.  Garnish with chives.
