 Categories: Chicken, Oriental
      Yield: 6 servings
 
      2 tb Rice wine
      2 ts Salt
  1 1/2 ts Szechwan peppercorns, crushe

      3    Scallions

   Transfer the chicken, breast side up, to the rack in the wok. Heat
  wok, covered, over mod-high heat for 5-6 minutes or until it begins
  to smoke. Smoke the chicken, covered, for 6 minutes.  Turn chicken
  breast side down, and smoke it for 6 minutes more. Remove wok from
  heat and let stand, covered, for 15 minutes. Transfer chicken to a
  cutting board, brush with oil and cut into serving pieces. a 1979
