Experimental Cookery 2016 #5: Szechuan Chicken Stir-Fry

Due to general business, I've been rather slow in updating the blog in the last week. This was actually the meal we had on Tuesday last week. It's taken from the fourth Hairy Dieters book, "Fast Food", though I modified it by replacing the asparagus with red pepper and the corn with mangetout - LC is no fan of the other vegetables (or, as it turned out, mangetout!).

As with all stir-fries, this was quick and easy to make. The key, as always, is to get everything ready and within reach before applying heat to the first ingredient. Other than that, it was dead simple - add ingredient, fry for a bit, repeat.

The result was very tasty. Of particular note was the final addition of sesame seeds, which added a nice crunch to the final dish - a nice move. So, that's another winner to add to the rotation!
