About this recipe: A spicy chinese-style crispy chicken dish, just like a takeaway. I get my chilli bean sauce in a jar from the chinese supermarket near where I live, unfortunately it is quite difficult to get hold of in regular supermarkets. But it is quite cheap and a little goes a long way!
You can adjust the amount of dried chillies to suit your taste. I like my food quite spicy, so I often add a few more chillies when I fry the vegetables. If you like a sweeter dish, add a bit more sweet chilli sauce.
Wow I had purchased a jar of chili bean paste for another recipe and was trying to find ways to use it up when I stumbled across this. At first I thought it would be too simple for me - wow was I wrong. The chicken is deliciously crispy and packed with flavour. I wound up marinating the chicken over night and had to double the chilli bean / sweet chilli mix, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Overall an amazing dish. This will become a regular in my rotation. - 27 Feb 2014
