  1. Place flour in a large bowl. Beat egg in a shallow dish. Coat a piece of chicken in flour, dip in egg, coat again in flour, and place on a plate. Repeat with remaining chicken. Let coated chicken rest for 10 minutes.

  2. Heat chili bean sauce and 1/4 cup vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat, whisking occasionally, for 8 minutes.

  3. Heat 4 cups oil to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) in a large skillet. Fry chicken in batches: cook for 4 minutes, flip, and cook other side until golden brown, about 4 minutes more. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

  4. Dip chicken tenders in the chili bean sauce mixture, using tongs. Transfer to a serving plate and sprinkle with ground Sichuan peppercorns. Serve immediately.

Cook’s Note:

You can find chili bean sauce and Sichuan peppercorns in your local Asian market for under $5 for both.
