GARLIC CHICKEN RECIPE | CHINESE GARLIC CHICKEN SIDE

Since it was the weekend I wanted to make something special for lunch, hence I did my all time favorite chicken fried rice and garlic chicken. I had pre-cut all vegetables and prepared the rice before hand, so the mixing process was hassle free. 

This is a simple and easy recipe, I used basic Indian ingredients and sunflower oil. It has the sweet and spicy taste along with the punch of garlic. The chicken is marinated and shallow fried along with capsicum (red&green) and onions with a good sprinkle of spring onions that add more flavor to the dish.

GARLIC CHICKEN RECIPE

Prep & Cook time ~ 20 minutes
Recipe Source ~ Own

Ingredients

For marinate:
Chicken – 200 gms (boneless)
Red chili powder – 1 tsp
Corn flour powder – 1 tbsp
Salt – as per taste

For Sauce :
Capsicum – 100 g cubed (green & red)
Onion – 1 medium cubed
Garlic – 5-6 pods (finely chopped)
Spring onions – handful
Tomato ketch-up – 1 tbsp
Soy Sauce – 2 tbsp
¼ C water
1 ½ tsp corn flour – mixed with a little water
Salt – to taste
Oil Рfor saut̩ing & shallow frying chicken

Method

For Sauce~
  • Prepare the marinate and let the chicken sit in the marinate till the sauce is done
  • Now in a hot wok/ pan, heat oil and add the chopped garlic and let it fry for 20 sec, so not let it brown as it will not taste good
  • Add the onions and capsicum and let it sweat for a minute, then combine the tomato and soy sauce and mix well
  • Add ¼ cup water and let it boil for a little while
  • Now add in the corn flour paste (corn flour & water) and let it boil in medium flame for a minute
  • Check for salt and add accordingly (soy sauce in itself has salt)
For Fried Chicken ~
  • Prepare a deep vessel, once hot add in the oil (required for shallow fry)
  • Slow add the marinated chicken, let it cook well on each side for a minute and strain the excess oil and let it sit in a kitchen towel
  • Once all the chicken pieces are fried add the chicken to the sauce and let it cook for a minute
Serve hot with fried rice

Tips

-         If the sauce is too thick simple add little water to it
-         Always remember soy sauce has salt in it so balance salt accordingly
-         If you want the sauce to be more spicy add some red chilli flakes to the garlic while sautéing
