For the wok:
2 boneless high quality chicken breasts
20 grams of garlic and ginger (about 5 cloves and an equivalent amount of ginger)
3 Chinese onions, chop about 30 grams worth
20 kernels of Sichuan peppercorn
Around 20 grams of chopped dried chilies, preferably Sichuan variety (at least 10 individual chilies, seeds removed)
Roasted peanuts, the more the better, according to what you like

For the marinade, he made it without giving exact amounts, but approximately use this:
2 pinches of salt
1 pinch of white pepper powder
1 pinch of chicken bouillon powder
~1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
~1 tablespoon rice cooking wine, you can use Shoaxing rice wine or regular cooking wine. In chinese it's 料酒, liaojiu
1 egg white
1 large pinch of cornstarch

For the sauce:
5 grams salt, 1 teaspoon
10 grams MSG, 2 teaspoons (OPTIONAL, not recommended)
10 grams chicken bouillon powder, 2 teaspoons
4 or 5 teaspoons of sugar
10 or 20 ml black vinegar, depending on how sweet you like it
1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
Wet corn starch, 2 tablespoons, you can use cornstarch and water.
and then add a little more water to the sauce

I found this local Chengdu restaurant right on the street offering all the classic Sichuan food, and asked the chef to show me how to cook his local Kung Pao Chicken. This is not a Chinese street food, this is Chinese "jiachangcai", home cooked food. The flavour was spicy, numbing, and sweet, and the chicken was really tender and soft.
