Schezwan Chicken Recipe / Spicy Schezwan Chicken Fry

My love for spicy foods have taken over my cooking too. Couple weeks back i was in a spicy mood, so decided to try out some schezwan cuisine. And i am telling you, this has become one of my favorite foods in the world. 

At first i made my homemade schezwan sauce. And then made couple of dishes from the sauce. I tried a schezwan fried rice and a schezwan chicken. Both of them turned out to be absolutely delicious. It was love at first bite. YUMMY..

These days you can easily find readymade schezwan sauce at stores, but when you can whip up a yummy flavourful sauce on your own, then why would you go for those stuffs. I strongly recommend you to try out the sauce at home and then make your dishes. Because the sauce is what matters. Hope you like this and let me know how it turned out for you..

Preparation Time : 15 mins
Cooking Time : 20 to 25 mins
Serves - 2


Schezwan Sauce - 1/4 cup or as needed (HOMEMADE or STOREBOUGHT)
Water - 4 tblspn
Oil for deep frying
Coriander leaves / Cilantro - 3 tblspn chopped for garnishing

For Marination:
Chicken - 300 grams Cubed(I used Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast)
Chilli flakes - 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Pepper Powder - 1 tsp (If you have schezwan pepper use that)
Garlic - 1 tblspn minced
Soya sauce - 1 tblspn 
Cornflour / Cornstarch - 4 tblspn


Take chicken in a bowl and add all the marination ingredients. Give a a mix and let it sit for 5 mins.

Heat oil for frying and deep fry the chicken for 5 to 7 mins till golden and completely cooked. Drain on a paper towel.

Now heat a wok or frying pan. Add in schezwan sauce and water. Mix that well and let it heat up.

Once it is heated add in the fried chicken pieces and toss well in the sauce to coat the chicken.

Once the chicken is coated and completely heated, add in the coriander leaves and mix well.

Serve with fried rice..
