Chicken Mushroom Stir Fry

My way of sneaking in their 'not-so-fav' veggies with their all-time fav ingredient, Chicken :)

What do you need

Chicken - 2 lbs. (boneless)
Mushroom - 1/2 cup (sliced thin)
Green Capsicum - 1/2 cup (chopped)
Jalapeno Pepper - 1 (sliced)
Onion - 1 (chopped fine)
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Daniya/Coriander Powder - 1 tbsp.
Red chili powder - 1 tsp (optional if you want that extra spice level)
Tomato Sauce - 1 tbsp.
Oil - 2 tbsp.
Salt - As needed

How you make it

In a wok, heat 2 tbsp. oil and fry chopped onion until they are golden brown .Now add in the ginger garlic paste and sauté until raw smell goes away. Add in daniya & turmeric powder (and red chili powder) and sauté for about a minute before adding in the chicken pieces .Along with chicken pieces add salt needed. On high flame, sauté well until chicken is almost cooked. Now add in chopped capsicum and sliced mush rooms and 1 tbsp. of tomato sauce. Adjust salt if needed at this point. Keep sautéing until veggies and chicken are cooked and the dish is almost dry .Finally add in sliced jalapenos and sauté little more until they are soft. I garnished with chopped onion and served with naan.

Note: You can replace jalapenos with Thai green chilies. I had used only one jalapeno pepper and tried to take out seeds from half of it.

I had chopped capsicum/bell pepper into tiny pieces to make kids eat without any fuzz. If needed you can make them cut in normal stir fry size.
