- Heat a teaspoon of oil in a wok over medium heat and add a cup of raw shelled peanuts. Stir constantly (or they'll burn) for 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir for another minute using the residual heat in the wok. Set aside to cool. They will turn crunchy once they're cooled completely. You can also skip this step and use already roasted shelled peanuts.
- Marinate the chicken. Mix together the chicken with all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and set aside for 20 minutes.
- Prepare the sauce. Mix together all the sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.
- Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a wok over high heat. Sear the chicken, remove from the wok to a bowl, and set aside.
- Turn the heat to low and add another tablespoon oil. Add the garlic, ginger, chilies, Sichuan peppercorn powder, and scallions. Cook for a minute or two until fragrant.
- Add the chicken back to the pan and turn up the heat to high. Stir-fry for a minute and then use your finger to stir up your prepared sauce (the cornstarch will have settled to the bottom, so make sure it's well incorporated). Add the sauce to the wok and stir-fry for another minute. The sauce should thicken very quickly.
- Finally, add the peanuts. Give everything a final stir and serve.

KUNG PAO CHICKEN
Spicy chicken with peanuts, similar to what is served in Chinese restaurants. It is easy to make, and you can be as sloppy with the measurements as you want. They reduce to a nice, thick sauce. Substitute cashews for peanuts, or bamboo shoots for the water chestnuts. You can't go wrong! Enjoy!

KUNG PAO CHICKEN
Not all stir-fries use high heat; this Szechuan-inspired recipe calls for more of a steam-sauté in a covered pan to keep the chicken breast meat from becoming stringy as you cook this 45-minute chicken and peanuts entrée. It has a kick from charred dried chiles, the tingle of Sichuan peppercorns, and a light coating of a subtle sweet-sour sauce.

- Heat a large cast-iron or non-stick skillet or wok over medium. Add peanuts and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil; cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and golden brown in places, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
- In a bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons soy sauce, cornstarch, and rice wine. Stir in chicken; let stand 5 minutes. Meanwhile, combine black vinegar, remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce, sesame oil, and brown sugar in a small bowl, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
- Heat remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in skillet over medium-high. Add peppercorns and chiles; cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant and chiles are blistering in places, about 1 minute. Stir in garlic; cook 30 seconds. Stir in chicken mixture, spreading in an even layer to edges of skillet. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook, undisturbed, until chicken is beginning to turn golden on bottoms but is not cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Stir in vinegar-soy mixture and celery. Increase heat to medium-high and cook, uncovered, stirring frequently, until chicken is just cooked through and liquid thickens enough to become glossy and evenly coat, about 3 minutes.
