Microwave Chicken

Microwave chicken. Again sharing a simple yet absolutely delicious chicken recipe in an easy peasy way. Just mix everything and microwave for 8 to 10 minutes and your chicken curry is ready with only 2 teaspoon oil. Easy isn’t it?

Earlier shared one more no oil microwave chicken or Hariyali chicken on this blog. In this recipe I used only 2 teaspoon oil. If you want more spicy add some more slit or chopped green chilli and red chilli powder. You can serve it with any bread or rice dishes. I served it with steamed rice and Beetroot green stir fry.

This Monday our 304 #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is Side Ka Kamaal suggested by Priya Vijaykrishnan who blog at Sweet Spicy Tasty. Priya suggested us to share any side dish. My contribution is this easy and healthy chicken curry for this theme. Priya has a wonderful collection of South Indian recipes on her blog. As the name of her blog you can get many other different types of sweet spicy and tasty recipes on her space. I recently bookmarked her Vegan kootu curry to try.

This is a microwave recipe. But you can also make it on stove top in the same way. Use a nonstick pan to fry the onions in less oil. Or you can use barista or fried onions too. Use green chilli according to your taste. To make more spicy add some more chopped or slit green chili and red chilli powder. Or if you are making for kids omit chilli. You don’t need to add water. Chicken will release enough water to cook. You can add a spoonful of ghee or clarified butter at the end if you want.
