All-in-All Chicken

All-in-All chicken....

                       This is the chicken recipe which can be taken as starters/ side dish/ chicken salad/ snack or a lite bite....

                         For me Sunday is the day to relax n spend some quality time with kids n hubby, Sunday is also the day where my kids n hubby ask  for different NV foods.....Sometimes, i usually plan my NV-menu on Saturday night n  cook some typical NV-foods with full excitement on Sunday, Sometimes i feel lazy n i won't do it......Yesterday, being a lazy Sunday, without any plans for cooking, with only chicken in hand n with a limited time to cook,  i thought of doing it simple but tasty chicken that can be taken as a snack for kids or side dish for me n my hubby....

                         This recipe is very simple that the chicken is marinated n cooked..that's it.....come on, pick up the ingredients.....



Ingredients:

Chicken (boneless) - 250 grams(small pieces).
Salt- as needed.

Lemon - few dropes.

Chat Masala - 1/2 tsp.

Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp.
Redd color powder - a pinch(optional).
Oil - 1 tsp(for marination).
Oil - 2 tsp(for cooking).


Tip:To make the cutting of chicken into thin strips or cubes easier, place chicken in the freezer for about 1 hour to firm it up or if the chicken was frozen, cut it into the thin strips before it is completely thawed.



Method:
