  • Chicken Breast  3 (600 grams) – Diced to 1 inch pieces

  • Onion  1 large diced
  • Chopped Garlic  4-5 cloves

Heat a pan (kadhai) with olive oil. Add chopped ginger and garlic.  Sauté for 1 minute. Then add diced onions and sauté  for 2 minutes. Add the diced chicken and continue to sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add salt and black pepper powder and water and cook until the chicken is 3/4th cooked. Add the diced capsicums (bell peppers) and chopped chilly. Cook on medium flame until the chicken is soft (5-7 minutes) (don’t make the capsicums very soft – that’s the reason we’ve added them after the chicken is 3/4th cooked).
