Mala Chicken Hotpot With AMC Premium Cookware ( 四川麻辣香锅 )

amc cookware recipe sichuan spicy chicken hotpot
Doused in a rich and spicy sauce piqued with Sichuan pepper that is intensely fragrant, the fiery dish is extremely addictive with a tingly-numbing sensation the minute you pop these chicken bites into your mouth.

Cooking the Sichuan Mala Chicken Hotpot ( 四川麻辣雞煲 ) is a breeze with the Wong's Wang Jia Du Spicy Balsamic Pot Condiment ( 王家渡麻辣香锅 ) I stumbled upon at a local supermarket. I am not familiar with the brand, but was intrigued by the food picture on the package of sauce. The pack comes with two packages of condiments and one is enough for the chicken dish.

Armed with Chicken, Lotus Roots and Dried Beancurd Sticks which I thought were a good match, I was game to experiment it with my recent sponsored AMC Cookware. You can add your own ingredients, but these are some of my favourites.

The result was more than satisfactory and I was definitely impressed with the flavours from the Wang Jia Du condiment pack. The one-pot dish was extremely delicious with the crunchy lotus roots, soft beancurd skin, and succulent chicken with a bowl of fragrant Jasmine rice.

I used the chicken bones and prepared a healthy Chicken Tonic with American Ginseng, and stir fried a plate of vegetables to pair with the meal. The simple dinner for my family of three was done in less than 30 minutes minus the chicken soup which needed longer time to brew.

I fell in love with these Szechuan Spicy Hotpots the first time I took a bite at the Chicken Hotpot Restaurant here in Singapore, and have been wanting to cook this at home. Warning: For those who are not into spicy food, this dish is not for the weak stomach. Let's get started!
