Chilli Chicken

This is one of my Favorite Chicken dish. I learnt this recipe from my Mom & its very very tasty. I know there are a lot of Chilli Chicken versions, but trust me this is something you will love it. Best part is this is a healthier recipe as we don't need to deep fry the chicken. we make this with Chicken with bones & if you want you can make boneless .


500-600gms. chicken (cut into small pieces)
2 tbsp Soya sauce
5-6 Red dried chilies (coarsely chopped)
