Stir Fried Chilli Chicken


I am definitely in a la la land , seeing all the emails , from those who tried out my Baked Pasta Casserole and Mushroom curry with yogurt . Thank you guys , 'm so glad you tried it and liked it . Wonderful to hear that some of you guys enjoyed making it on sunday evening :)

The recipe of the day, is from "the chinese take out dinner " I made in my kitchen along with Egg fried rice, that I posted here .


Here lightly pan fried chicken pieces are again sauteed in flavorful ingredients , ending up in a delightful side with Fried rice , chapati or even simple white rice. 

In fact its a bit modified version of the kerala chilli chicken a dry version to the normal indo -chinese chilli chicken gravy, making it less -oily less fatty , a bit more quick and healthy . So next time when you are thinking of a take out , give this a thought and trust me "most of the times the take out tastes better in your own kitchen" .



Recipe for Indo-chinese Chilli chicken - dry version :-

Ingredients:-

Chicken - 1/2 kg ( i used 2 boneless breast pieces )
Salt to taste
Ground black pepper - a large pinch
Soy sauce - 1 tea spoon

Onion diced - 1 medium
Ginger thinly sliced - a 1 inch piece
Garlic thinly sliced - 3-4 cloves
Green chili chopped - 2
Green bell pepper - 1 small 
Scallions / Green onions - a small bunch( i use both white and green part)
Soy Sauce - 2 tea spoon
Chili tomato sauce - 3-4 table spoons or use a mix of chilli and tomato sauce 
Dried red chiles - 1 or 2

Directions :-
Clean and cut the chicken pieces into desired pieces . Its better its thin and long .Marinate it with salt to taste , soy sauce and ground black pepper. Heat a spoon of  oil in a pan and shallow fry the chicken pieces, 4-5 minutes on each side or until they are cooked and brown. drain on paper towels and set aside.
Or you can bake or grill the chicken pieces.

Heat 2 spoons of oil in a Wok or any other pan add diced onion and saute for 3-4 minutes. Add chopped ginger , garlic , green chilli and diced bell pepper , saute for another 5-6 minutes. Add soy sauce, scallions,chilli-tomato sauce and fried chicken pieces. Saute for a couple of minutes , or until it is dry and everything is mixed well. Switch off heat . Break dried red chilli into two and add all the seeds to the pan for that extra kick and serve warm.



Cheers
Sarah

Beautiful Presentation Sarah. Looks very nice.

Reshma said...

Hi Sarah - I have recently stumbled onto your blog via a friend who highly recommends the site. Could you let me know if this would work with a gravy version - i.e - perhaps use pineapple juice+vinegar+sugar to get a sweet & sour gravy? Thinking abt giving it a shot - but since I am still feeling my way around the kitchen - do you think it would work?

Sarah Naveen said...

Hey Reshma..Thanks for stopping by my space..and thanks to ur friend too :-)
I haven't tried a gravy version with this, so I m not sure how it will turn out...P juice , vinegar and sugar sounds a yummy gravy combo.., but doubt whether juice n sugar makes it too sweet ?
