Benhalterci's Spicey Chicken Recipe

Recommended Posts

You need:2 chicken breasts2 red chilli peppers4 small red onionsTurkish pepper paste/sauce Soy sauce (or salt)Flourolive oilBegin by slitting the chicken breasts in half and then bashing them with a tenderiser to flatten them. Then cut them into smallish pieces and dip in flour. Paint the bottom of a large deep pan (preferably with lid to seal in the juices) with olive oil and heat. Put the chicken pieces in them and sprinkle soy sauce or a very small amount of salt over them. Turn the pieces over to seal them slightly but don't cook to the end. Take them out of the pan and put them into a plate on one side.

Chop the peppers and onions; reheat the pan adding more oil as needed and fry the peppers and onions so that the onions are lightly cooked and transparent.

Add the chicken pieces and about 2 large spoonfuls of the Turkish pepper sauce.

Important; add a small amount of water so your food does not stick to the pan.

Cook and taste from time to time until the meat is sufficiently cooked.

At the end the vegetables will be reduced and slightly caremelised and the meat should be still tender but well done and flavoured by the sauce and veg.

Serve either on its own or with rice.

I can't find long grain rice in Turkey so I will bring some from home next time!

I did this first time about 6 weeks ago and really liked it. I think the sauce and the red onions make it special. It's a good recipe for sports people as its fairly low fat and tasty and high protein!

Thanks:) Despite Sunny's instructions I think I put it in the wrong place in the Forum! I was always lousy at Geography:)Abi, I don't think they sell long grain rice in Turkey - or if they do, probably only in specialist shops of which there are few. It's one of those things I'll be resigned to schlepping back with me when I go home! This reminds me of when I lived in the USSR and there were food shortages:)
