Making food for people is all about showing your love towards them, taking care of their emotions and feelings. I'M KIDDING who gives a crap about emotions and feelings these days. I don't have any.
So, in search of a new recipe I came across something very different and to my surprise it was of Chinese decent. It's called Jalapeño Chicken but that also sounds like a Mexican or Continental dish so, we name it Asian Jalapeño Chicken.
It's sweet, savory and spicy all in the same time. The best part is that it's super easy to make and only takes 5 minutes to prepare and 10-15 minutes to make depending upon how good you are with the stove or the gas cylinder because its winters and the GOVERNMENT is messing up gas supplies.
500 grams boneless chicken cut in 1 inch long cubes
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
juice of 2-3 lemons
1/4 teaspoon sesame seed
1 sliced jalapeño
1 sliced lemon, pinch of sesame seeds, chopped coriander leaves and more sliced jalapeños for garnishing
First we season the chicken with some salt and pepper.
Then we heat oil in a wok or non-stick pan and start frying the chicken until its golden brown.
Set it aside.
Now in a bowl add honey, soy sauce, garlic paste, sriracha sauce, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and sesame seed.
Mix it to prepare the gravy mixture.
Chop slices of lemon and coriander leaves for garnishing later.
Now on a frying pan heat 1-2 tablespoon of olive oil on medium heat and add the gravy mixture.
Bring it to a boil, add the chicken, jalapeño slices and some lemon slices.
Let it cook as the chicken absorbs the gravy and it will thicken in 5-7 minutes.
Asian Jalapeño Chicken is ready to serve.
Top it with more jalapeño slices, sesame seeds and coriander leaves. This is best eaten with plain boiled rice or even boiled bran rice.
Ladies and gentlemen, let go of your taste-buds for the SWEET, SAVORY AND SPICY Asian Jalapeño Chicken.
