The other day, while I was searching for a chicken recipe to go with the Szechuan Fried Rice, I stumbled upon the recipe of Hunan Chicken. The picture was so visually appealing that I didn’t have any second thoughts. I just decided to go ahead and nail it. Though the recipe called for boneless chicken, my eagerness took the better part of me; to proceed ahead without wasting anytime in de-boning the chicken. I tweaked the recipe a bit to suit our liking of havinglots of gravy, to have with rice

I got the recipe from BlogChef

    Mareena, this recipe is superb. Even with an accidental excess of soy sauce it turned out very well.
