CHICKEN STIR FRY

Since i am a chicken lover i crave for it at times.Chicken stir fry is what i make when i want something quick made of it.Its simple and easy.I marinate the chicken for about 1 hr with some dry spices.Cooking time takes about 5-8 mins on medium high heat since i use boneless chicken breasts and they cook up in no time.

This is my post on day 17 of RM 2.

INGREDIENTS

Boneless chicken breasts - 2 whole,cut to bite size pieces
Onions - 1 medium size,sliced
curry leaves - of 1 sprig
ginger - 1 tsp
garlic - 2 tsp
lemon juice - 1-2 tsp
coriander leaves - a bunch,chopped

For Marination:-

Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Kashmiri chilli pdr - 1 1/2 tsp
red chilli pdr - 1 tsp
coriander pdr - 2 tsp
cumin pdr - 1 tsp
garam masala - 1/2 tsp
salt
oil


METHOD
Mix all the dry spices required for marination in a bowl.Drop the chicken pieces and coat them with the spice mix.drizzle with some oil and refrigerate it for about an hr.

In a wide flat bottom pan,heat some oil on medium high heat.Add the gin-gar and curry leaves.Stir for a few seconds and then add the sliced onions.Stir it till they turn golden brown.Now spread out the marinated chicken pieces in the pan and stir it for about 5-8 mins or until they are fully cooked.Do not cover the pan.A nice brown crust will be formed on the outside of the chicken pieces.Garnish with coriander leaves.Serve hot with rotis or rice.
