Chicken in garlic sauce


You can see I am making thsi dish in my place often as Itook new pictures today to add .
This month for which is hosted by Nicole I was paired with Rachel of Tangerine’s Kitchen . Which I thought was excelent as i love all her cooking and baking. If i wanted i could have baked something from her place as there was so much choice for baking goodies there, but I thought I will do this Garlic Chicken as this was looking really yumm and If i may say it was indeed really super yummy.
I sitcked almost to the original recipe,


I am noting what I did different here in a another color. . For the rest I followed her originam recipe which i have noted down.
I halfed the recipe as 1 kg chicken was too much for just three of us.
When i marinated I didn't add the egg yolk and I also added 2 tbsp of soy sauce.
Didn't add the vinegear to the sauce and the capsicum ( didn't have )
Also addeed 2 tbsp of soysauce to the sauce.
Added 1 tbsp ginger.
And also didn't add so much oil . I would love to taste once the dish wiht that much amout of oil as i am sure it would be yummy.
Even if i didn't add so much oil , the taste still was so so goo and this is one delicious dish which is going to appear in my dinner table more often.


1 kg Chicken (boneless cut into bite-size pieces)


For Marinating
4 tbsps Oil½ tsps Pepper powder
4tbsps Cornflour
Salt as needed
2 Eggs



Marinate the chicken pieces with the marinade and reserve aside for some time.
For the Sauce

4 tbsps Chopped Garlic
2 Onions Chopped
4 tsps Chilli Powder
1 cup Water (Stock can also be used)
½ cup Tomato sauce
Salt as per taste
2 tsps Sugar
1 tsps Ajinomoto (optional) Didn't add
4 tsps Vinegar ( added 2 tsp)
4 tbsps Cornflour
1 Cup Oil ) Adeed less oil
½ Cup Capsicum chopped

Heat oil and fry the marinated chicken for a couple of minutes and remove and set aside.


To the remaining oil, add onion and saute until translucent; add in the garlic and chilli powder and saute further for a few minutes. Now add the tomato sauce, vinegar, sugar and salt and add in ajinomoto if using it…Follow this by adding in the chicken pieces.


Into the 1 cup of water or stock , stir in the cornflour and add it to the above stirring continuously until the sauce thickens. Remove from fire and garnish with chopped capsicums.
