Chilli Chicken | Restaurant Style Chilli chicken ( Dry Version ) | Chicken Recipe

Restaurant type Chilli Chicken with step by step pictures.

Sunday lunch would always be a treat in our home which would be either chicken, beef or sometimes mutton. Since my kids prefer chicken the most, it will be our Sunday lunch mostly. During summer vacation, My daughter ordered not to make regular chicken curry for lunch in one Sunday. I always see that I fulfill their wish and so searched ideas for it and ended in this chilly chicken.I paired it with carrot fried rice and the combo was a super-duper hit.
