Diced Chicken with Chili

Chinese name: 辣子鸡丁 (là zi jī dīng)
Style: Sichuan (Szechuan) Cuisine
Characteristics: The diced chicken in it tastes hot and smooth outside, tender and fresh inside, with bright golden color. The dry chili sections serve both as seasonings and decorations, making this dish spicier and more attractive.

Different from Kung Pao Chicken, Diced Chicken with Chili is mainly made of fried diced chicken and dry chili sections. To cook this dish well, more oil, high heat and quick-frying are especially important, which can help to keep the chicken's freshness and tenderness.
