Chinese Chicken Chili Dry is my must-have at any Pakistani-Chinese restaurant. The flavors in this dish are insane especially if you are a spice lover. And I may be biased but today’s recipe is just like how you get at your local Chinese restaurant.

  1. Fry the ginger slices in oil till slightly crispy. Then toast the minced garlic.
  2. Add the marinated chicken on high heat and cook for couple of minutes only. The chicken cooks very quickly.
  3. Toss in the bell pepper along with sauces. I used green bell pepper in the pictures and orange ones in the step-by-step instructions above. You can use either.
  4. Add the deseeded and sliced green chilies. Toss well and turn off heat.
