Cooked up something different and interesting the other day, we enjoyed it tremendously. The szchewan chicken, I still don’t know how to pronounce it, so we called it chwan with my husband. There was a few things I did not have so, I guess its appropriate to call it Chwan because it missed the Sze, ha! The recipe came from http://www.pikachakula.com, look it up and also try my recipe below, you shall definitely enjoy it.
- 1/4 kg Chicken
- 2 tsp corn flour ( I like limiting my meals to processed stuff, original recipe uses 2 tbsps)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp five spice powder (I didn’t have this used a bit of paprika, tandoori, coriander powder)
- 2 tsps of oil
- 1 tsp finely chopped garlic
- 1 tsp finely chopped ginger
- 2 spring onions
For The Sauce :
- I cup chicken stock (used knorr chicken cubes. Put one in a cup and add hot water, stir)
- 1 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1 tbsp soya sauce
- 1 tsp vinegar
- 1/4 tsp five spice powder (same as above)
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp of corn flour – in one tbsp stock/ water
- Coat chicken in corn flour, salt and five-spice powder. Brush off excess.
- Stir-fry the chicken until lightly coloured. Remove from pan. Pour off all but 2 tsp of oil.
- Add garlic and ginger. Cook for 30 seconds before adding onions and all the sauce ingredients (mix all sauce ingredients together).
- Bring to a boil, return chicken to pan, heat through and serve.
