Ingredients
  • Chicken breast – 2, medium
  • Onion – 2, medium
  • Green bell pepper – 1, medium
  • Garlic – 8 to 10 cloves
  • Dried red chili – 4 to 5 [adjust as per your taste bud]
  • Schezwan paste/sauce – 6 tbsp
  • Vegetable oil – as required for shallow frying
  • Salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Wash and cut the chicken breasts into bite sized pieces. Season with salt and set aside.
  2. Cut the onions in big chunks and then separate each layers. Cut the bell pepper in one inch long square pieces. Slice the garlic cloves and dried red chilies.
  3. Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan and shallow fry the chicken cubes in batches till they are golden brown. Keep aside.
  4. Heat little more oil in the same pan and add the sliced garlic, red chilies, chopped onion and capsicum. Sauté on high heat for five minutes until they are soft.
  5. Now add the Schezwan paste/sauce and half a cup of water. Keep stirring on high heat.
  6. Tip in the fried chicken cubes and stir to mix thoroughly so that all the pieces are coated well with the Schezwan paste.
  7. Taste and adjust the salt if required as the Schezwan paste/sauce is already quite salted.
  8. Splash some water if it becomes too dry and stick to the pan. Sauté till the chicken cubes are tender and fully cooked and the sauce has the coating consistency.
  9. Serve the spicy dragon chicken as a starter and make it an instant favorite of the whole family.
