Bang-bang chicken, a street vendor's dish from Chengdu in the Sichuan province of China, is also known as “Bon-Bon chicken”. The names seem to have originated from when the chicken was pounded with a heavy wooden stick called a bon to tenderized/shred the meat, which would make a banging noise. It’s also known as “Strange Taste Chicken” because of the combination of unusual ingredients that produce a unique, salty sweet sour spicy & tingly (from Sichuan peppercorns) sensation! Here I served the dish with baby corn stir-fried in a little sweet chili sauce and fresh lime juice, and some stir-fried Chinese greens in oyster sauce ~ Epi
