Chilli Chicken


I’m back!!!! Thanks Sharmi & Srivalli for enquiring about me…

The past few weeks had been soo hectic & could not blog, so now I have come up with a Spicy dish for you…     

Let me confess,  I dont like to eat Chinese food here in the US.

No offense but, first of all the odour in those restaurants makes me feel like throwing up.

Except to eat in Indian restaurants, I really dont eat out much, Chinese or otherwise.

Somehow I have never been able to adapt to any other cuisines. I am happy with my Indian food.

So when I want to eat some Indian Chinese its easy, I prepare Chilli Chicken & Fried Rice.   🙂

The Capsicum/Peppers added enhances the flavours of this wonderful dish.

Chilli Chicken


     1 Lb -Chicken – Skinless, Boneless Breast

     1 Onion

     1/2 ” Ginger

     1 Clove Garlic

     1 Capsicum

     2-3 Tbsp Oil

     1 Tsp Red Chilli Powder

     2-3 Tsp – Vinegar

     2-3 Tsp – Soya Sauce

     2 Tsp Ginger Garlic Paste

     1-2 Tsp Corn Flour

     1 Tsp Tomato Paste/Puree

     1/2 Tsp Turmeric

     Salt to Taste


    Wash & cut the chicken breast into cubes.

    Apart from the first 6 ingredients, combine all the other ingredients, adjust Red Chilli Powder & salt to taste.

    Make a smooth paste of it.

    Now add the chicken  cubes & mix so that the chicken is well coated with the marinade.

    Refrigerate the marinated chicken for a minimum of 2 hours.

    Slice Onions thinly. Finely chop Ginger & Garlic. Slice Capsicum into strips.

    Heat Oil in a wide pan. When hot add the thinly sliced onions.

   When onions turn transparent, add the finely chopped Ginger & Garlic.

   Saute for 2 -3 minutes. Add the marinated Chicken.

   Stir well & saute on high flame initially & then reduce flame to medium.

   Keep stirring often so that the chicken wont get burnt, cook for 15-20 minutes.

   Adjust the spices now if needed.

   Now add the Capsicum strips & saute for a few more minutes.

   Delicious Chilli Chicken Ready!!!!
