Ten Minute Szechuan Chicken | “Every time I make this recipe, it turns out fantastic and people love it.”
Do note–if you expect any kind of sauce, don’t. I forgot that Szechuan Chicken usually doesn’t come with sauce. When I selected this recipe, I expected something along the lines of Kung Pao Chicken, which usually comes with sauce. The chicken had an exceptionally good flavor and served with rice, is a definite winner.
Overall, this is a good recipe. I made some changes to this recipe to suit my taste. Reduce the amount of soysauce to 2 TSP, and add 1/2 TSP directly to the meat. Add 1 more tsp of sugar to balance the flavor. Add a dash of five spice powder or ginger to give it authenticity. I tried the recipe with beef, and it turned out good. This is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
