An oldie but a goodie– try Szechwan Chicken if you’re cold and need warming up. It’s a great winter dish. You can make this as hot as you can handle, adding peppers or taking out the pepper flakes. Our Autumn honey will cool it down a bit. It’s all about what works for you. We also encourage you to change things up as you prefer by adding whatever veggies you would like. Give pea pods, or peas, julienne carrots, broccoli florets, a handful of shiitake mushrooms or bok choy a try, it’s all about you and the Szechwan Chicken.
