The dish originates from the Jiangxi province of southern China, is a specialty of Ningdu, and has become especially popular in Taiwan. Chicken pieces are sautéed with garlic cloves, fresh ginger, and sliced scallions in the blazing hot wok. Then it's finished with the original recipe for "three cups" sauce, referring to one cup each of soy sauce, sugar, and rice wine. When the dish is almost finished cooking, the chef adds a handful of fresh basil leaves for an aromatic finish. The accompanying Persian cucumber salad and steamed rice make the perfect companion for the bold flavors in this classic Chinese dish. Served with traditional Chinese quick-smashed and marinated cucumber salad. We partner with Dragon Beaux—a chic (and popular!) restaurant in San Francisco's Outer Richmond district—to bring you some of the best Chinese food in the Bay Area.

The cucumber salad was refreshing and tasty. The chicken portion was skimpy and unremarkable.

Good flavor. A whole bunch of sliced ginger and cloves of garlic. Not much chicken for the amount of rice provided.
