Has anyone ever had Tai Chien chicken?

It's on my local Chinese restaurant menu's specials list, and I want to try something different?

Is it worth a look?

    Yes, it is actually the same as Kung Pao chicken, but modified by the famous Chinese painter, Chang Dai Chien, he used to serve this dish to his guests at his home, so Dai Chien Chicken was named after him.

    This is a Szechuan dish, as Chang Dai Chien is from Szechuan, it is spicy stir fried chicken thighs, leek (all diced), dried chili, sweet red and green bell pepper, with the favour of sour (Chinese rice vinegar), hot (Szechuan chili sauce (dou ban sause & Szechuan pepper) and sugar, chicken stock...etc.

    We don't use olive oil to cook this dish, but peanut oil!!!! The recipe of the first answerer is not authentic because it doesn't have vinegar + Szechuan pepper + garlic in the seasoning list and normally we don't put celery nor water chestnut in this dish! But Chinese leek is one of the main ingredients.

    Szechuan pepper is the soul of the favour of this dish.

    I always have the authentic Kung Pao chicken in the Szechuan restaurants in Beijing or Hong Kong.
