Chilli Capsicum Chicken

I am making this recipe since a decade and every time I love to eat it all alone with some green salad or serve it as a starter for all beer lovers. The heat in the chicken is quite on higher end and is served more like a starter . Or else you can even serve as a side dish to accompany with simple rice sambar / dal chawal / rice rasam . Green Capsicum , green chillies , chicken , soya sauce , white vinegar ,oil and salt are the only ingredients that are used to make this chicken. As it is my own version of diet friendly version of chilli chicken and use only capsicum and chillies , I name it as Chilli Capsicum Chicken.

Fewer variations can be made to the recipe to get a saucy consistency by using corn starch at the end of the recipe and allow it to thicken for desired consistency . Also you can marinate chicken in soya sauce and vinegar for 30 minutes and continue to make this dish .

This recipe has No Onion , No Garlic and No Ginger in it. All flavours are mainly from Chillies , Soya Sauce and Bell peppers. Try not to use Chicken breast pieces , as it may dry out quickly . If you don’t like chilli capsicum chicken to be completely dry then try saucy version of this chicken .

For Chilli Capsicum Chicken to be saucy : dissolve 1 1/2 Tbsp of corn flour in 1/2 cup of water and add it to the chicken at the end of the recipe ,once it starts to thicken ,turn off the heat . Garnish with spring onions and serve.
