Paleo Schezuan Chicken

I have been meaning to post this recipe for months (it’s probably been on my iphone notes for about 7-8 months ha!) but as my health is full of peaks and troughs, I tend to post things as and when I have the energy and when my husbands got time to fit it in (I’ll let you into a little secret, he’s the only reason this blog still exists! He helps transcribe all my voice notes into blog posts, checking for any brain block moments when I spell things wrong or put random words ha) … So, it’s been a while since this dish has been cooked in our house but I can tell you that it tastes so delicious and will have you licking your knife and fork! If you are not paleo you can change the coconut aminos in this recipe for soy sauce and you can use white wine vinegar or Apple cider vinegar if you don’t have coconut vinegar. You can also use coconut sugar, xylitol or even honey in place of the erythritol and use tamarind paste if you don’t have fresh tamarind. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we did! I don’t know exactly if Schezuan chicken is actually a dish (I’ve never heard of it!) but when we first made it my husband said that the dish reminded him of a spicy chinese dish which originates from Schezuan province in China.
