Spicy Szechuan Chicken Stirfry Recipe

3년 전

I love the unique taste of the sichuan peppercorns and the spiciness of the red chilies and sauce. This is a spicy Szechuan chicken stirfry recipe. It is spicy, easy, healthy and good! Video recipe at the end of this post. Enjoy.


Chinese Szechuan Chicken ~ Chinese Sichuan Peppercorn Stirfry


Chicken marinade:
1 pound of cubed boneless chicken thighs or breasts - 2 large breast halves
1 tbsp light soy sauce
2 tsp. rice wine vinegar
sprinkle of salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tbsp. cornstarch
*Mix above ingredients together and marinade for 20-30 minutes

3 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. water or broth

1/2 to 1 tsp. sichuan crushed peppercorns
1 tbsp. Szechuan hot bean sauce
oil for frying - I use peanut or avocado oil

1 cup diced onions
1 cup diced bell peppers
1 cup diced celery
1/2 to 1 cup diced carrots
2-3 fresh red chili peppers - diced
3-5 dried red chili peppers
4-6 minced garlic cloves
1 tsp minced ginger

In a hot wok or pan, add oil and chicken. Spread out chicken and let cook for 20 seconds before stirring. Cook and stir chicken until done and remove from the wok. This will take 3-5 minutes. A nice crust on the chicken will form.

Add more oil and chili oil to wok/ pan. Add garlic, ginger and chopped fresh red chili peppers. Stir and cook for 20 seconds. Add crushed Sichuan peppercorns. Stir and cook for another 15 seconds.

Add diced vegetables and dried chili peppers. Cook and stir for 3-4 minutes or until veggies are slightly tender. You can add some water to help steam and cook the veggies.

Add meat and juices back into pan/wok. Add Szechuan hot bean sauce and sauce mixture. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes to get well combined.

Serve over jasmine rice. Garnish with chopped green onions, sesame seeds or peanuts. Enjoy.

Typical cuisine of sichuan province, China.
The cuisine is very famous in Chinese cuisine as a cuisine that many have
Taste spicy, sour, salty, and sweet.
This dish is very popular in the region of Chengdu and Chongqing, is that so true @tesscooks4u.
Actually I really want to taste this chicken dish, but the distance separated by the continent, so I can just try myself at home with my family, after you share the recipe is very good @tesscooks4u, success always make you my friend @tesscooks4u.

wow that looks really delicious. i have watch a lot if video recipe for this dish. and i think this is one of the easiest one to do. i like watching a lot of cooking vids in youtube.
following tubers like laura jamie olliver, food wishes and also genarro if you like italiani suggest it youll learn a lot from them. they are also entertaining to watch. honestly i want to be able to travel to alot of countries like china just to taste the original. ive heard a lot of good rave about where the dish came from. too bad finding good ingredient or spice like this is very hard in the philippines


Hello @foxlobo31 Yes, I love all the Chefs you have mentioned. They are talented. You may want to check online ordering like Amazon. Thanks for visiting and commenting.

This is a great spicy recipe and i love spicy food often, i mostly visit the places where spicy food is offered. Your spicy dish is a great addition to my home made spicy dishes which i make randomly to fill my spice craving.
