  • 1 tbsp Salad oil
  1. Clean the chicken breast and slice them thinly. Add in salt, egg white and cornstarch. Cut the spring onions into chunks and the bell pepper into pieces.
  2. Heat up a wok with oil, stir in the sliced chicken. Add in the spring onions, bell pepper pieces and Mapo sauce. Stir until all the ingredients are well-combined and cooked.

This looks really good and easy enough for me to cook! But how do you cut the chicken so thin? It is amazing how thin you can slice the chicken!

awww what a to buy this bean sauce to try a couple of recipes incl this one :-)

Angie's Recipes 9/2/10 18:51

Thank you, guys, for taking time visiting my blog!
@Mausi:A sharp knife or you could try freezing the chicken for 10 minutes, until slightly firm, will do the trick.

This is positively mouth-watering. Beautiful colors and great flavor combination - not to mention that fact that it's quick.

I Googled "ma po chicken" and this blog was the first one to pop up. I'm so glad I found it!

This chicken recipe is very quick, delicious and looks pretty! I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs since I think breast meat can be a little stringy. Other than that, I followed the recipe as is.
