Recipe Description:

‘Gongbao’ or ‘Kung Po’ was the honorary title of a 19th century governor of Sichuan province, who either created the dish himself or encountered it while paying a grateful visit to a man who had saved him from drowning. He used to serve generous amounts of this marinated chicken and peanut stir-fry at all his banquets, spreading its richly deserved reputation far and wide. It’s a masterclass in the famous sweet-sour and numbing-spicy (‘ma-la’) flavours of classic Sichuan cuisine. Numbing? Yes, that’s the Sichuan pepper— a pleasantly tingly spice sensation caused by the dried berries of a certain citrus plant.
