Schezwan Chicken

Nuvita Biscuits


  • 4 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, about 7 ounces each
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  • 2 tablespoons Shao Xing rice wine, dry sherry or cooking wine
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed dried red chilies, or to taste
  • 2 slices ginger, minced, to form 1 tablespoon


  • 4 carrots, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon vegetable oil



Rinse the chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Cut the chicken breasts into thin strips. (Partially freeze chicken breasts first to make this easier).
Combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. Whisk the cornstarch into the egg whites. Coat the chicken strips in the cornstarch mixture. Heat 1 cup oil in the wok. Cook the chicken strips briefly in the hot oil until they turn white. Remove the chicken and drain on paper towels. Clean out the wok and add 1 tablespoon oil. When the oil is hot, add the carrots. Stir-fry briefly and add the peppers.
Make a “well” in the middle of the wok and add the sauce. Heat briefly, then mix the sauce in with the vegetables.
Return the chicken to the wok.
Stir-fry 1 to 2 more minutes. Stir in the green onions. Serve with rice.

    And, if you have a recipe for great fried rice, kung pao chicken and orange chicken, please pass them on. I love P F Chang’s style, but I am interested in other authentic tastes (Mandarin, Schezwan and American style, that is).

    -Which butter has highest nutritional value? Peanut butter or ordinary butter?

    I’m looking for a great recipe for comeback sauce maybe it’s called Kumbak sauce or a dressing. I’ve had it in a few southern resturants.

    I just had one.

    It was horrible. The sauce was watery, hardly any food. It was a sesame chicken. and I think the chicken was actually chicken flavored beef…

    I’ve been raised on bad food like waffles, white bread, mac & cheese, hot dogs, fruit loops, ice cream, donuts, chips and bean dip, and just about anything bad you can think of… My dad is a major health freak now and insists that I join him on his Paleo diet. I’ve tried some of it but it’s seriously bland and the only way to make it tasty is to add a bunch of crap to it and by then it would no longer be healthy…
    I weigh 120 lbs and work out at least 3 times a week and stay around 120 lbs. How I’m not fat by now is a miracle but I just want to know why I hate healthy food and is there any way to make it taste good without adding a lot of crap to it? I don’t know if this is relavant but I’m still a teenager. Maybe it’s my taste buds? I don’t know if they change with age but seriously, I WANT to like eating healthy but I want to vomit every time I try some of it….HELP PLEASE
