BALSAMIC GARLIC PEPPER CHICKEN

I always see pre-marinated chicken in the freezer section of supermarkets and I have always wanted to give it a try. I usually marinate my own chicken but I wanted something new so this was going to be my plan. I forgot to ask what the marinade ingredients were but the pack was labeled Chicken Boston Barbecue. Well, well, well, this chicken was gonna take me to Boston! Hehe! Anyway, I decided not to add too many condiments since the chicken was already marinated. I was pleasantly surprised when I started searing the chicken the aroma that filled the chicken was just wow! I wanted to add some color with some red onions and green bell peppers. They added a touch of freshness and crisp. I shallow fried the chicken to make sure that I did not loose the flavours in the marinade, that I forgot to ask 🤣, bottom line is, I looooooved the chicken!

INGREDIENTS

1 Pack pre Marinated Whole Chicken
1 Cup Red Onions
1 Cup Green Bell Pepper
3 Tablespoon Garlic Ginger Paste
1 Teaspoon Salt
3 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil

METHOD

Cut up the whole chicken into sections

I will soon post a how to cut whole chicken

Heat oil in a skillet

Add all chicken pieces on the pan skin side first

Make sure the pieces are touching the bottom of the pan to get a perfect sear

Cover the pan with lid and let the chicken fry

After a few minutes, flip the chicken pieces to brown the second side

Keep flipping as the chicken pieces brown some more

The heat should be medium high so that the chicken does not burn

Fry until the chicken is cooked through, at this time it will be dark brown with crispy edges

Add salt

Add ginger garlic paste

Add chopped red onions

Add chopped green bell pepper

Stir fry the chicken a few minutes

Add red wine vinegar into the chicken, be as generous as you want

I love the charred bits on chicken so I stir fry until the edges are almost burnt and blackened

Serve immediately with fries, rice or with stew
