This is a famously spicy Chinese dish, typical of Sichuan food.
Cut the chicken meat into small cubes and marinate for 30 minutes.
Mix the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Heat up a wok with 2 tablespoons of the cooking oil and stir-fry the marinated chicken until cooked. Do in batches if you need to. Set aside.
Clean the wok and add 2 tablespoons of cooking oil until it smokes.
Add in the ginger and garlic slices and do a quick stir before adding in the dried red chillies.
Stir fry the dried red chillies until aromatic and they smell spicy, then add in the spring onions and Sichuan peppercorns and stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Add in the chicken meat and the sauce mix and stir continuously until the chicken and vegetables are nicely coated with the sauce. Lastly, add the roasted peanuts and stir through.
Serve with rice.
