Szechuan Chicken Stir-Fry


Szechuan Chicken Stir-Fry | Cooking ClassyIt’s been a few months since I’ve made a stir-fry and summer is the best time to make them so here we are! A quick and flavorful stir-fry that’s perfect for those fresh summer peppers and snow peas. Plus it’s an entree your whole family will enjoy!

There are so many things I love about this stir fry, but first off let’s talk about the peanuts. Those to me are the highlight of this stir-fry (which may seem funny because they’re just a finishing touch) but I just can never get enough of that peanuty crunch on asian food. Addictive! Which is why I used 1/2 cup, let’s not be skimpy, right? Another thing I love is the sesame oil and sambal oelek, the first brings loads of flavor while the second gives it that crave worthy heat (and you better believe I was spooning plenty more over my serving). Of course I love the fact that everything is cooked in one skillet and that I already have most of the ingredients on hand at all times (the only thing I don’t always have on hand are the veggies, everything else is a staple in my house). So while it does look like a long ingredients list don’t worry you probably have most of it too. If you like asian food then this is one to add to the rotation! It’s deliciously saucy, perfectly hearty, it makes for a great weeknight meal, and of course, it will leave you wanting more! Read more »
