Stir Fried Sichuan Chicken Recipe


INGREDIENTS

  • 200g chicken thigh
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp Sichuan pepper corns
  • 1 Birdseye chilli
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 onion
  • 2 spring onions
  • 100g cashew nuts
  • The Marinade:
  • Sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 pinch Chinese 5 spice
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon corn flour
  • The Sauce:
  • 1 tsp chilli bean paste / chilli paste
  • 1 tbsp hoi sin sauce
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1-2 capfuls rice wine
  • Sesame oil

METHOD

Cut the chicken into large dice and place in a medium sized prep bowl. Finely chop the garlic and chilli and place in separate prep bowls.

Dice the onion and place in a prep bowl. Throw all the marinade seasoning into the meat bowl and massage well ensuring you add the corn flour last.

Finely slice the spring onion and place in a small prep bowl.

Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a wok to high heat. Once smoking hot, add the onions stir-fry for 2 minutes.

Push the onions to the side of the wok and add an extra tbsp vegetable oil to the centre of the wok. Bring oil to a high heat and add the crushed pepper corns, garlic and chicken. Stir-fry until chicken is golden brown.

Add the cashew nuts to the wok and stir fry for a further 2 minutes. Now add the chillies along with all 'The Sauce' ingredients to the wok. Continue to stir-fry on a high heat.

Add the spring onion and a drop of sesame oil to finish.

If sauce is too thick, add a dash of hot water to the wok whilst cooking the meat through. If too thin, use corn flour paste to thicken.

Grab your chopsticks and enjoy.
