- Heat the wok over medium-high to high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken. Stir-fry until it turns white and is nearly cooked. Remove from the wok.
- Add 2 tablespoons oil. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and stir-fry until aromatic (about 30 seconds).
- Add the chili peppers and the Szechuan peppercorn if using. Stir-fry briefly until they turn dark red.
- Add B to the wok. Bring to a boil.
- Add the chicken back into the pan.
- Stir in the peanuts or cashews and the scallions.
