Sichuan Style Hacked Chicken Breast
When you say "hacked chicken breast" you usually mean that the breasts are cooked, cut into slices and served at room temperature with a sauce poured over them. These breasts are poached, sliced and laid out on a bed of sliced cucumbers and shredded scallions.
Since this recipe is Sichuan style, they are then sprinkled with minced ginger, garlic, flower peppercorn powder and crushed peanuts. Finally, everything is covered with a spicy sauce made with peanut butter, soy sauce, chili oil, sesame seed oil and vinegar.
Served at room temperature, this dish would make an excellent lunch on a warm day or even on a cold day.
