Chili Chicken with Sichuan Peppercorns
This spicy chili chicken dish tantalizes the taste buds in a very good way!
This Chinese New Year it was very hard for me to think up of gluten free, dairy free and sugar free recipes that made my guests happy whilst still indulging in the symbolic benefits of cooking a Chinese New Year feast. Chicken symbolizes Luck and the red chili pepper symbolizes wealth and power. Hence, making this dish a crowd pleaser during the festivities. To compensate for the soy sauce and oyster sauce, I had to make an impact on the flavour profile of my marinate. So I, wok fry the chili, shallots, garlic and dried prawns as a marinate then braise it with the chicken and all of the other ingredients. Making this recipe a two step process. Finally, before serving I chopped up some spring onions for an added freshness and serve with rice.
