Chilly Chicken

We all love a nice hot serving of Chilly Chicken. It's my favourite comfort dish.

Be it winter or summer, lunch or dinner, chilly chicken appeals to me everytime it is served.

However, chilly chicken available in most of the restaurants are deep fried in oil which can turn out to be very unhealthy. Therefore, I tried a stir fry version of the chilly chicken and it turned out to be just as good as the restaurant version.

Its healthy and delicious !


1. Chicken 500gms
2.  2 onions diced
3.  1 capsicum diced
4. 1/2 cup spring onions
5. Green Chillies as per taste
6. Sauces like vinegar, soya sauce, red chilly sauce
7. 6 cloves of garlic
8. Cornflour
9. Salt as per taste
10. 1 cup Chicken stock


1. Wash and marinate the chicken with vinegar, cornflakes and salt and keep for about 20minutes
2. Take a non stick pan and heat about 1tsp of oil
3. Add the marinated chicken the pan and stir fry the chicken. Make sure that the cornflour coats the chicken well

3. Once the chicken starts turning brown, take it off the pan and fry garlic, onion, spring onions and capsicum and stir fry

4. Once the greens cook a little, add the chicken and mix well

5. Add the sauces of your choice. I added soya sauce, garlic chilly sauce to the chicken.

6. Once they cook a little and start changing colour, add the chicken stock to the mixture. If you want a thicker gravy, add about 1tsp of cornflour to the stock before adding. You can add water(with about 1tsp of cornflour) of you do not have chicken stock ready with you.

7. Add salt as per your taste and serve hot
