Szechuan Chicken With Peppers

Szechuan Chicken With Peppers
One of the Szechuan dishes that I absolutely love is Szechuan wok-fried chicken and usually prepare them on weekends when we don't pay a visit to any restaurant. This chili-laden dish was alluringly tongue-numbing, explosively fiery, and pleasantly addictive. This is a very easy and very tasty Chinese recipe that is also kid-friendly! It is a favorite around many house, both among mom and dad as well as our younger picky eaters. Szechuan chicken is a spicy Chinese chicken dish. It consists of breaded chicken bits tossed in a spicy and flavorful sauce. The sauce uses ingredients such as oyster sauce and chicken broth to give it that amazing flavor. Most of the spice comes from dried chili peppers. In India Szechuan peppercorns can be a little hard to find.Therefore I'm using cayenne pepper adjust the flavors here.This dish reminds me a lot of Kung Pao Chicken. This dish is great served with rice and vegetables.
