This dish I would make again! It was delicious. A bit tedious to make but well worth it. I served it over brown rice and it was the main part of our meal. I sprinkled a few shakes of cayenne pepper because I did not have the szechwan pepper, and I don't like things particularly hot, unlike my husband, and we both enjoyed it! Thanks for the recipe :)

Thisd was very good, but not quite as well spiced as it might have been. Also, I think it would benefit from the addition of scallions or sweet onions. The chicken is very tender and moist, the celery is crunchy and a good contrast to the chicken.
