Onion Chicken with Soy Sauce

onion chicken with soy sauce

It looks like ages ago when I was working for a IT company in Bangalore!. Anyone who has ever worked in IT industry knows how busy and stressful life can get. During those days, my friends and I loved to take long lunch break together. I looked forward to this time as most of my friends were great cooks. We loved talking about food, exchanged recipes. This is one such recipe I got from my friend Sandhya. She even wrote it down on a piece of paper for me. I have prepared this so many times since then.

Fried onions give a sweetish taste to this chicken. The dish gets done so fast, only time consuming part being marinating the chicken. I usually cut and fry onions when chicken is marinating. I use tender breast pieces, so that only 10-15 mins marination is enough. I love that this dish does not have too many ingredients and tastes amazing.

1 lb (0.45 kg approx) chicken cut into strips
2 cups chopped onion
A pinch turmeric
5 green chillies
7-8 strands (along with thick stems) coriander leaves
2 tea spn chopped ginger
2 tea spn chopped garlic
1 tbl spn soy sauce

Make a paste on green chillies, garlic, ginger, coriander leaves. Apply to chicken and leave aside. If you are using tender chicken breasts, 10-15mins marination in enough. Otherwise leave it aside for atleast 30mins.
Heat ghee or oil and fry onions till they are brownish. To help the onions cook down faster, add a little salt. Add the chicken, turmeric, salt and let it cook.
When chicken is half done, add soy sauce, mix well. Let the chicken cook completely. Serve hot as a side dish with chapatis or as a starter. Goes well with curd rice too.

Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 15mins (plus marination time)
