How to Make Hot Pepper Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut chicken meat in sheets away from breast bone, slice into squares of 1x1".
  2. Dredge in a mixture of corn starch and salt on a piece of wax paper; allow pieces to dry individually on wax paper about 20 minutes.
  3. Remove seeds from fresh peppers and coarsely cut into strips; reserve.
  4. Mix sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, wine together in a small bowl; reserve.
  5. Heat oil in wok until smoking, add dredged chicken, stir fry on all sides - If oil is hot enough for chicken, pieces will not stick to wok.
  6. Add sugar and vinegar reserve, hot peppers; cover wok.
  7. Add 1/2 cup water, cook over medium heat 5 minutes; self gravy should form in the bottom of wok.
  8. Stir chicken in gravy so it will cook in gravy.
  9. Gravy should become gelatinous after 5 minutes of cooking.
  10. If gravy becomes too thick, thin gravy out with small amounts of water.
  11. Sprinkle in 1 cup of peanuts, mix thoroughly.
  12. NOTE: Canned hot peppers are too soft to be used for this dish - If desired, dried cayenne peppers can be reconstituted for use.
  13. If you are fond of this dish, it is well to freeze your own hot peppers, in season.
