Chicken With Capsicum

If you don't have that much time to prepare a warm meal and you don't want to eat junk food then this is a chicken dish you can whipp up really fast.
I think sometimes it takes longer to slice the chicken and the capsicum etc than making the dish it self.
Plus as the dish is not spicy ( only spicy taste is from the chillie sauce, so if you have young kids or people who don't like spicy food will love this.
If you want to have a dry dish then don't add a lot of stock and if you want to have more sauce for the dish add more chicken stock. But then add a bit more Kecap Manis.
You can serve this chicken dish with rice or noodle it is you choice.

Chicken breast thinly sliced 500 gm
2 table spoon of oil
2 spring onions slice plus extra for garnishing
1 garlic clove chopped fine
1 small piece of ginger finley chopped
1 tsp of soy sauce
I big red capsicum sliced
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar or if you don't have use normal white vinegar
2 to 3 table spoon of Kecap Manis
1 tbsp of honey
200 to 250 ml chicken stock
1 tbsp of spicy chillie sauce.
1 to 2 tbsp of corn flour miced with a little bit of water
Salt and pepper to taste.

Heat the oil in a wok / pan add the onions, ginger and garlic and fry for few minutes or till they are soft, then add the chicken pieces and the soy sauce fry for few minutes, add the kecap Manis and the capsicum and chillie sauce,honey and vinegar and fry for another few more minutes, the chicken won't take that long to cook as they are thinly sliced.
Add the stock bring every thing to boil, add pepper and salt ( take care with the salt as soy sauce and the kecap Manis is salty)
Add the cron flour mix and make the sauce thick, sprinkle with spring onions and serve with rice of noodles.
If you think your sauce is too watery add a bit more of the corn starch mix to make it thicker.

Sra we have a huge window in our living which is facing south side so in the afternoon there is plenty of light comming in ( this pic was taken in september).
And when there is not enough light i just draw the white curtain to a side and ake pics and as we are in the ground floor passers by sometimes peep inside :-)

I like the feel of your blog - not only the pictures are beautifully lighted, as someone else noticed too, but the blog itself has a very un-crowded look and feel.
Classy :)
