Directions

  1. Stir together the honey, peppercorns, salt, soy sauce, and sherry in a large bowl; add the chicken and toss to coat.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the ginger, garlic, red chile pepper, and green onions; cook and stir until fragrant, no more than 30 seconds. Stir in the chicken and soy sauce mixture; fry another 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low, cover. Simmer until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Whisk together the bean sauce, vinegar, and sesame oil in a small bowl; pour over the chicken and stir. Turn heat to high and allow to cook 1 minute. Serve immediately.

We thought this was really yum Dan! I used lite soy sauce and because I didn't have black vinegar, I used rice vinegar instead. This is a keeper and thank you so much!

I took a taste before adding the bean sauce mix. I preferred it much better than the finished chicken. Ill try it again with some variation on cooking technique.

This is one of the yummiest Chinese dish I have had from here!! Thank you so much for a great tasting recipe. I doubled the recipe and used Szechuan peppercorns instead because we enjoy them more than regular peppercorns in Chinese food. This is definitely a keeper!

This came together really fast which is nice. We like spicy and I thought this would be spicer than it was. I served this Jasmine rice and some stir fried veggies.

'Omitted the peppercorns & the hot bean sauce. This reminded me of good mall food. I do mean that as a compliment. It's good, but it tastes easy - which it is. I used 1/2t crushed red pepper & it was mild heat, maybe too much for those that are sensitive. 'Glad I tried.

This is delicious. I would recommend leaving out the peppercorns though as they are too strong when you bite down on them. When making it a second time I replaced it with about a third of a teaspoon ground black pepper. I also left out the salt as soy sauce is salty enough. This was quick and easy, I will definitely make again!
