Schezwan Chicken - Chengdu style

Schezwan Chicken - Chengdu style

Schezwan cuisine comes from the Schuan Province of Southwestern China. Cuisine from this region has bold flavors, it is pungent and has spiciness to it. Lots of Garlic and peppers. This dish is in Chengdu style. In fact Chengdu city has now been declared a city of gastronomy in China. I encourage all my friends to try different green vegetables and peppers in this dish.
