Spicy Szechwan Chicken

This is the first recipe in my empty nest cookbook…

…YAWN

No, that’s not the title, but seriously, it’s hard to feel inspired right now when the messy room that used to house my ever-hungry teenager looks like this:

(Insert cricket sounds here..)

But hey, I took the opportunity to clean out my spice cabinet today..

and besides discovering 4 opened boxes of baking soda, I also found a few spices that I totally forgot I had purchased and NEVER used; 😱 including this Szechwan mix.

I shook it liberally over two chicken breasts and fried them both in olive oil just until the pink was gone.

 The taste was delicious and the flavors left behind in the pan infused the zucchini I sautéed right after.

Quick, easy, yummy and yup, that’s it.

Stay tuned for next week’s installment in the Empty Nest Cookbook:
