Garlic Pepper Chicken

Garlic Pepper Chicken is an Indo-Chinese dish, in which only 2 – 3 Chinese sauces are added to give the flavor. Garlic Pepper Chicken  is cooked in my style. I love making chicken with different sauces and experiment to get a different taste. I do not go with the perfect ingredients, in fact most of the times, I keep experimenting to get a unique mesmerizing flavor.

Though mostly in Chinese gravies, chicken are deep fried, but here I did not deep fry the chicken, in eggs , cornflour and maida ( all purpose flour) instead I have marinated and then fried them directly to give a different taste and fresh look unlike the classic ones. This is one of the most liked ramadan recipe.

Here is the Recipe of Garlic Pepper Chicken in my style. Hope you all like it.

Garlic Pepper Chicken


  • If you want a proper gravy then add more cornflour and water as per your preferences.
  • Increase or decrease the chilies as per your taste or add chilly sauce as per your  preferences, if you do not have too spicy do not add one of them.
  • Do not over cook the chicken while stir frying that shall make the chicken hard, so avoid it.
  • You can add honey also, instead of sugar but I have added sugar.
  • I have added red chilies instead of green ones, so that it looks colorful and if tastes more spicy can side them as they visible. 

PREPARATION TIME: 15 – 20 Minutes. ( extra time for marination )
