It is time to dig into another simple yet fulfilling chicken dish. This time it is a win-win situation for chicken lovers. This recipe is quick, healthy, and of course savory. So let's begin!

What you will need

For the marinade:

For the sauce:

For stir-fry:

  • Onion: 1 medium, finely chopped
  • Green pepper: 1 large, finely chopped
  • Salt: to taste
  • Oil: as needed

Get, set, cook

  1. Mix the chicken breasts with the marinade ingredients, and let it stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by mixing all of the sauce ingredients thoroughly.
  3. Once the chicken is marinaded, heat about 2 tbsp oil in a pan, and place the chicken breasts in it.
  4. Let the chicken cook on medium heat for 20 minutes, turning once every 5 minutes.
  5. Remove from the pan (leave the drippings in the pan), and lay it over paper towels in order to get rid of the excess oil. Let it cool down a bit.
  6. Meanwhile, add another tbsp of oil to the same pan, and fry the onions and green pepper over low heat, stirring occasionally.
  7. Check to see if the chicken is cool enough for you to touch, and then chop the fried breasts into 1 inch pieces, while the onions and the green pepper get fried.
  8. Add the sauce to the pan, and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  9. Add the chopped fried chicken, salt, and about a cup of water to the pan.
  10. Bring the mixture to a boil, and simmer it until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. Please ensure you check periodically as the chicken would already have been 75% cooked from being fried before.
  11. Serve and relish!

I love cooking, I love eating and I love chicken. They have to be range fed and free from any chemicals. Thus their meat when cooked is mouth watering delicious. I can't wait to try this recipe, it appears yummy. The ingredients suit the dish for sure. Well done, it's bookmarked to try soon.

Nice recipe! The dish is very simple to prepare and very flavorful. I served it alongside some steamed broccoli and snow pea pods that has added some more taste to the recipe. I think it would go best with rice. I have shared it with my friends also.
