Szechuan Chicken!

You know what I was thinking, I should really take pictures of the food I make to put on this blog! Of course, then I kind of doubt I would ever post anything . . .

Anyways, today my good friend Sunny came over for dinner and I made Szechuan chicken. I have loved this ever since I went to a restaurant called Little Village Noodle House in Honolulu. Szechuan chicken is so delicious! I don't have an exact recipe because I just kind of wing it. But the nice thing is that it calls for all ingredients that I always have on hand.

So here goes:

Soy Sauce
White Wine Vinegar (or normal White Vinegar)
Green Onions
Cayenne Pepper

Cut chicken into 1 inch cubes and lightly coat with corn starch
Heat some oil in a frying pan, add minced garlic (I like a lot)
Add chicken and fry until all sides are white
Add soy sauce (I would say for 1 lb of chicken it would be about 3-5 tablespoons)
Add vinegar (for the same amount of chicken 1-2 tablespoons)
Sprinkle with sugar
Add a couple of tablespoons of water. It just depends on how strong of a flavor you want and how runny you want the sauce.
Add diced green onions and cayenne pepper. You can make it as spicy as you want.

Anyways, I know these aren't very good directions, but it's really good so you should try it!

I think that I'll have to try this once Rocky gets home. Admittedly, I haven't really mixed up my cooking in a while to make him anything special and I think that this is something that he might like.
