Chilli Chicken

Chilli Chicken is a popular indo-chinese dish of chicken which needs no introduction. The spicy and juicy fried chicken pieces, sauteed with onion and bell peppers tastes delicious in mouth. Here, I'm using a basic version of chilli chicken with basic ingredients for an indo-chinese recipe. So, just gather the ingredients, grab your pots and pans and start cooking with "Flavors of Sneha's Kitchen".


250 gms of chicken cubes (with bones or boneless)
1 egg
Chilli Chicken
2-3 tbsp of cornflour
1 tbsp of soya sauce
1 tsp of tomato chilli sauce
1 tsp of vinegar
1 tsp of ginger-garlic paste
1 tsp black pepper powder
1 big onion cut in cubes
1/2 capsicum cut in cubes
1-2 slit green chilli
1 tbsp of finely chopped ginger and garlic 
Salt to taste
Oil for frying
Cilantro and sesame seeds for garnishing


  • In a mixing bowl, add chicken cubes, soya sauce, egg, salt, pepper, cornflour and ginger-garlic paste. Mix well and let it marinate for half an hour. (Here I'm taking half of the amount of every ingredients except egg & ginger-garlic paste)
  • Heat oil and deep fry the marinated chicken cubes till they are brown. Take out on a tissue paper to absorb the excess oil.
  • Now in another pan, heat 1 tbsp oil. Once hot enough, add chopped ginger & garlic and saute for 1 minute.
  • Now add onions, green chilli, capsicum and saute on high flame for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add fried chicken, salt, pepper, soya sauce, tomato chilli sauce and vinegar. Mix well and saute for a minute.
  • In a small bowl, take 1 tbsp of cornflour and water and make a lump free paste. Add this in the mixture and boil till it thickens.
  • Garnish with cilantro and sesame seeds and serve hot.

Note: Since soya sauce is added, be careful while adding salt. While frying the chicken pieces, make sure that it is not over fried. The chicken is ready when it becomes golden brown.
