We all know that a lot of Hunan cuisine is spicy. I remember my father was on a business trip and went to Hunan. He couldn’t stand the spicy food there. He specially asked the kitchen master to be merciful and not to put chili peppers, but he still ate spicy food. Why? Because the pot fried pepper, the pot is very hot, fried dishes of course feel hot. But it’s strange that I’m not afraid of spicy food. Let alone I’m not a person who can eat a bowl of spicy food, but I like spicy food very much. I always hear about bandit chicken. I checked the website and made a reference. I changed the material slightly to chicken thigh meat. I know it’s very unorthodox, but who can say it’s absolutely authentic? To sum up, this dish is not difficult to see in the process of operation. It is characterized by spicy, fragrant and crisp.
