Schezuan Chicken

"I clipped this recipe from the newspaper over twenty years ago. When it was just DH & I, this was a favorite. The kids aren't so fond of spicy foods, so I don't serve it often anymore. The first time I served it, I used the wrong spices for "heat" by mistake. When I checked the conversion later on, it turned out to be twelve times too hot. DH should've gotten a medal for eating it. But when the spices are balanced, this is a great dish."

    terrific. I also added some green onions.

    First, I halved the recipe and made 2 generous servings over jasmine rice. Next, I increased the amount of garlic, used freshly grated ginger and used 1 1/2 teaspoons Sambal Oelek instead of the Tabasco. The snow peas were fresh and added some julienned summer squash to increase the amount of veggies. Stir-fry is a great choice on a weeknight--quick and easy.
