Szechuan Chicken

The Best Ever

"Made this dish tonight and it was a winner. I was concerned as I had never done a stir fry with corn starch before, but it turned out just perfect. Thanks for the informative video ... Enjoyed the sauce - it is better than any restaurant near me. I think I will try with beef next time." ~ Eric
