Recipe by Mirj
This is a very simple recipe that produces stunning results. Szechuan cooking is usually pretty spicy, but this recipe is surprisingly mild. I like to jack it up a bit with some hot sauce, but my family doesn't like spicy food, so I do my own at the table.

- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
