Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Oriental #Chicken: Szechuan Chicken #Recipe from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is SZECHUAN CHICKEN!

I love oriental food. It can be so flavorful. Savory. This is a favorite recipe. It doesn’t take much time to make. Pour it over rice, and you’ve got a great family dish. 

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
