My BH's Recipe, Shredded Brown Chicken

     Eid Mubarak to all. I am so happy to share this recipe on this special occasion, actually this is my better half's own recipe. He used to make some special dishes for us on his off days, those days i will be totally free from my kitchen. I love to cook but who doesn't like a change in daily routine :-)
     I enjoy those days when he cooks for us. Some times he makes 'butterfly chicken' (grilled full chicken with his secret masalas) and 'hummus', we have this dish with 'tandoori roti ' or ' khubs ' Its a heavy meal, we eat this for lunch.
     Off to today's recipe, a non gravy side-dish which he often makes, that goes well with fried rice, bhatura etc,. Its even used as a filling for sandwich or spring rolls. Its a kids friendly recipe too. You can make a chapati roll with this for your kid 's lunch box.

  • Chicken breast : 1/2 kg
  • Soy sauce : 3 tbsp
  • Chilly powder : 1 tsp
  • Onion : 3
  • Capsicum : 1
  • Green chilly : 2 nos slitted
  • Coriander leaves : 1/2 cup chopped
  • Oil : 2 tbsp


      Cook chicken breast with 1 tsp chilly powder and 2 tbsp soy sauce. Shred chicken into small pieces. In a pan add oil and fry onion slices till brown, add green chillies followed by shredded chicken. Saute chicken till it becomes dry, add remaining sauce and saute again. When chicken is dried completely, remove from fire. Garnish with capsicum and coriander leaves.
