Szechuan Chicken

Szechuan is a style of Chinese cuisine originated from Sichuan province in southwestern China. Lots of garlic and chili peppers are used in the dishes. These dishes are spicy compared to regular Chinese dishes.
We all love spicy food and also Chinese food, Szechuan cuisine satisfies the need. Kids and all my family love this dish. I made it numerous times but never got a chance to take pictures.
I made Szechuan chicken with home made Szechuan sauce. Sauce is easy to make:
