Super Easy Mouthwatering (Saliva) Chicken 口水鸡 Chinese Spicy Chicken Recipe • Szechuan Sichuan Style

I agree. Saliva chicken is a gross name for a dish, especially when this dish contains absolutely zero saliva. Saliva chicken, probably should be known as mouthwatering chicken, is a direct translation from its Chinese name 口水鸡. I guess it means that when you look at them, your saliva will mysteriously start to well up in your mouth. LOL. I didn’t use to like this dish at all because it looks so oily but when I first tried it in the US (haha out of all countries, right) when Roland and I were vacationing in the US, I fell in love with this dish instantly. Now I understand why many people love this dish. I hope you give it a try too.

See the ingredient list below for your easy reference.
