Chicken Chilli-2

Chilli Chicken is a delicious fried chicken tossed in a sweet and spicy onion mixture (which contains ginger, garlic and capsicum), along with sauces like ketchup, hot sauce and soya sauce. Perfect with a nice bowl of fried rice or even with breads like chapathi or naan.

I am still in the quest to find out the flawless, ultimate recipe of Chilli Chicken, the Indo-Chinese style. Unfortunately, I  didn’t reach there yet. While I was in the attempt to make dry chilli chicken, I came up with this recipe which did taste a little like it, but not entirely. But it was delicious. So I decided that I’ll share it with you guys but was not sure what to call this dish. I was going blank and I didn’t want to waste anymore time deciding the name for this dish and so I decided to call it CHICKEN CHILLI- 2. 
Yes, if you don’t remember, I had posted a chicken chilli recipe earlier which is a completely different recipe. You should check that out too. Today’s recipe is super easy. So, if you are new to cooking and want to make something fancy and yummy to impress your hubby or friend or just anybody, this Chicken Chilli is probably a good recipe to start with and I promise you that you’ll impress yourself with the flavor.
