Hints and tips:

Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces before cooking and serve with lemon or lime wedges as a pre dinner canape.

You can also add some chilli flakes to the mixture for an extra kick.

Place the szechuan pepper, salt and rice flour in a medium size bowl and combine well.

Trim off any excess fat from chicken and dust lightly in the pepper and salt mixture.

Heat a large fry pan over a medium heat and add oil.

Once heated cook the chicken in batches for 2-3 minutes each side or until cook through completely.

Drain on kitchen towel before serving to remove any excess oil.
