Fried chicken with chopped chillies

N was out with Kiko to see the vet for Kiko's third vaccination, while I stayed at home to prepare dinner on Friday's after work evening. I was running out of ideas how to cook chicken. I don't want to eat oyster sauce chicken or steam chicken. And dinner has to be on the table when N and Kiko are back.

Without any plan in mind, I decided to marinade the chicken with some salt, chopped garlic and curry powder first. I let it marinade for about 20 minutes while I prepared other dishes. I thought of cooking curry chicken...but then I don't feel like eating curry. And I remembered buying some fresh chillies. So I chopped them up, and using the blade of the knife, pressed the chopped chillies a little to mash them up a bit.

While doing all these, I still had not much idea how my chicken dish is going to turn out. I went by my instinct. First I fried the marinated chicken into light golden brown. Then I fished them out from the oil and set them aside. Then with the remaining oil in the wok, I threw in the chopped chillies, onions, garlic, put a bit of salt and stir fry them. Then I pour the stir-fried chillies, onions and garlic over the chicken. Voila! There's my self-invented recipe of chicken dish :P

The stir-fried chillies was abit too oily as I should have pour away the extra oil aftr frying the chicken, but I didn't. Anyway, the dish turned out ok. It was not spicy enough as I'd expected. But it was a new taste, and something to add to my DIY recipe book :P

If you want to try it or improvise it, here's the recipe:

Fried marinated chicken
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
300 - 500gms chicken parts
few dashes of salt
approx. 3 tablespoons curry powder

1. Mix all and let it marinade for at least 20 mins
2. Heat some oil in wok and fry the chicken.
3. When chicken turn golden brown, fish them out from the oil and set aside to cool.

Stir fry
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 small red onions, chopped
2 chillies, chopped
dash of salt
about 3 teaspoons of leftover oil from frying chicken

1. Use the blade of knive and press the chillies (to mash them up abit to form chilli paste)
2. Heat oil in wok and put in garlic and chillies for stir fry.
3. After 1-2 minutes of "tumis", pour in the fried chicken and stir-fry to mix the ingredients.
4. Stir-fry for another 2 minutes.
5. Ready to be served.
