    Babes_Mom's Note:

    The owner of the Chinese restaurant in our town was nice enough to show me how to make his Hunan chicken (my favorite!) when they sold the restaurant in December, 2012. He used a wok over a huge gas flame and whipped this up in about 3 minutes! Americans will have to make do with a saute pan, and I'm sure a stove won't cook nearly as fast as his wok on a flame. I hope I remembered most of his recipe!

      The name you are looking for is chili oil. This recipe was great.. I doubled the sauce but be warned unless you like extreme fire do not double the chili oil when doing so. The only ingredient that seemed to be missing from this fantastic dish was ginger. So I added 1 tsp of ginger powder to my doubled sauce. Awesome!!!!
