Big Plate Chicken, also known as "Da Pan Ji" in Chinese, is a popular and flavorful dish from Xinjiang, China. It is a hearty and satisfying meal that combines tender chunks of chicken, potatoes, bell peppers, and onions, all stewed together in a rich and aromatic spicy sauce. The sauce is made from a blend of various spices, including Sichuan peppercorns, chili peppers, and other aromatic seasonings, giving the dish its signature tongue-tingling spiciness. 大盘鸡 is often served with a side of hand-pulled noodles or steamed rice, making it a favorite choice for both locals and visitors seeking a taste of Xinjiang's vibrant and bold flavors.
