Chicken in a sweet red pepper sauce

Chicken in a sweet red pepper sauce recipe

Here is my first recipe for the website! I hope you all enjoy it as much as my family did. I was quite surprised when my kids scoffed the lot! I really liked the taste of the ginger coming through in this, and if you really like ginger, you could add a little more.

Serves 4

Red pepper sauce

  • 1 large onion, peeled, roughly chopped
  • 1/1.5 inch of fresh ginger, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 large red pepper, trimmed seeded and chopped
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp ground coriander seeds
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper

Everything else

  • 4 large chicken breasts, sliced
  • 240ml/8fl oz water
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • vegetable oil, for cooking
  • salt and pepper

Put all the red pepper sauce ingredients in a blender, and whiz to a paste.

I used a wok, but a large non stick pan would do. Place the pan on a medium heat, and pour in a little oil. When it’s hot, add the paste and stir-fry for 10-12 minutes.

Add the sliced chicken, water, and lemon juice. Give it a stir, bring to boil, before covering and reducing the heat to low. Simmer gently for 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked.

Season with generous amounts of pepper, and a little salt to taste.

Serve with rice. Bon Appetit!

  1. Made this tonight – very very nice. Managed to snap a photo before gobbling it up.

    Only thing I did different was to add about a teaspoon of sugar, just to make it a little sweeter. YUM!
