    Mirj's Note:

    This is a very simple recipe that produces stunning results. Szechuan cooking is usually pretty spicy, but this recipe is surprisingly mild. I like to jack it up a bit with some hot sauce, but my family doesn't like spicy food, so I do my own at the table.

      This recipe is a do again it was easy with a great taste. I did double the sauce may even triple it next time. I didn't like the cornstarch on the chicken.Next time I am going to cook the chicken and make a slurry of the cornstarch and chicken broth. I also added crushed red pepper for a little heat ,mixed up the peppers usinng a little red and a little green and added straw mushrooms and some broccoli. Yum... Yum ... will do it again , Thanks for sharing Mirj.

      Definite winner! Put some brown rice in the cooker first and then diced the chicken and garlic. While they were cooking, I chopped my veggies and measured out the other ingredients (just put everything into one big bowl as I finished with it). By the time I finished with that, the chicken was nicely browned so it was time pour in my big bowl of stuff and the whole thing was ready just as the rice finished cooking!A healthy and delicious dinner was ready in 20 minutes! I usually don't like the texture of meat when you coat it with cornstarch, so I just made a slurry with chicken broth and added it right before I added the scallions. I also threw in some mushrooms that I needed to use up and some sriracha sauce for a bit of heat. Right before serving, I sprinkled in some crushed dry roasted peanuts and some slices of lime on the side. Guess that didn't make it a real szechuan, more Thai...but it was delicious. Thanks for sharing, Mirj!
