Pepper chicken and herbed butter rice

This might sound like the common pepper chicken that we get at any oriental food joint but let me assure you this is not. A completely different recipe from my friend Soumyasis, which I modified to play with our taste buds more. 

Well this one has only one important ingredient that’s black pepper, and alot of it is needed. And I can tell you its not going to be too spicy but a warm one indeed. I made this last Sunday which was a rainy one, because I felt like treating myself. 

I also made the rice to go with it , and I will attach a small recipe for it too at the end so stay tuned. 

Things you will need-

  1. Chicken 
  2. Vineger
  3. Green chillies ( deseeded if you like)
  4. Red chilli powder 
  5. Coriander powder
  6. Cumin powder
  7. Garlic paste
  8. Ginger crushed/paste
  9. Black pepper- ground, and you will need a lot of it 
  10. Butter
  11. Refined oil 
  12. Oregano
  13. Salt

How I make it – 

  • Take chicken, marinate with vineger, garlic paste, green chillies, coriander powder, cumin powder, red chilli powder, a bit of black pepper, and salt to taste, for about an hour. 
  • Heat up a pan, add butter and some refined oil or any neutral oil. Add red chillies, garlic paste, grated ginger. And add the chicken 
  • Fry them, at nearly high flame, till grilled marks appear. Cover the chicken pieces with black pepper powder. On both sides. And keep on frying 
  • After about 7-10mins, add water or stock to it and let it simmer. 
  • Take it down after 5-10mins . 
  • Add oregano. 

For the butter rice – 

  • Take a pan, heat up and add generous amount of butter. 
  • Add red chilli, chopped garlic, 
  • Add boiled and cooled rice. 
  • Add sugar and a little bit of salt
  • Add your mixed herbs ( I added rosemerry, parsley, basil and thyme ) 
  • Stir for a while and it’s ready

The subtle and sweet buttery rice goes really well with the chicken..
