Chilli Chicken | Chili Chicken Recipe

Chili Chicken is popular Indo-Chinese recipe and if you eat chicken than this is a treat.  My sister makes some really good chili chicken and while we visited her she made this.  Though the ingredients and method looks long and complicated but if all the ingredients kept ready then it's easy and quick recipe.  Have it as started or side dish and enjoy.
