chilli chicken

this is Chinese style chilli chicken, goes very well with fried rice(which will be my next post) and its very easy to make.


chicken cube           2 crumbled (I used maggie)
chicken                   500g (with bone)
soya sauce dark      3tbsp
vinegar                    1 tbsp
ginger chopped       1tsp
garlic chopped         1tsp
oil                            3tbsp
spring onion             2 chopped
cornflour                 1 1/2 tbsp
water                       1 1/2 cup 
green chillies            5 slit
res chillies                5 slit
capsicum                  1 chopped
mushroom                1 cup chopped (optional)


* Marinate the chicken in 3 tbsp soya sauce, vinegar,garlic,ginger and chicken cubes for 1/2 hr.

* Heat oil in a wok/pan, add in only the chicken pieces, keep the leftover marinade liquid aside and fry the chicken. Cover and cook for 5 minutes and fry without cover for 15 to 20 minutes.

* Add spring onion, green and red chillies, capsicum and mushroom. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes.

* Add 1 1/2 cup water and 1 1/2 tbsp of cornflour to the leftover marinade liquid and mix well. Pour this liquid into the chicken and cook till the gravy thickens.

* serve with fried rice and noodles

(note: do not add salt because the chicken cubes already has a lot of salt in it)
