Chicken Whatever ??? ....

Best Blogger Tips
There comes a day in everyone's culinary life when you don't want to cook 'the run of the mill' fare, none of the exotic or different recipes appeal to you, and you really don't know what to do, but yet you are itching to do something new. So you hit the kitchen in full gusto and let your instinct take over, juggling between different spice bottles and flavorants and voila!-well, the result can range from a dish that could make escoffier envious or you could initiate a global movement to ban you from entering the kitchen.
Something very similar happened to me a few days back. You could blame it on the post festival season where you are totally stretched in the kitchen, while office has its own demands. Anyways, the result did not make me proud and make me wanna run to patent the dish, but the dish was good. If only the salt had been kept a little low, but then I always have lesser salt. :-)

Chicken Breast - 2 pieces
Soy Sauce - 5 Tblsp
Garlic Paste - 2 Tbslp
Onion Paste - 3/4 Cup
Oregano, dried - 2 Tsp
Thyme, dried - 2 Tsp
Red Chilli Powder - 2 Tsp
Black Pepper - 2 Tsp
Tomatoes, made into a puree - 3
Salt - To taste ( Go a little easy ...with all that Soy around anyways)
Oil - 2 Tbslp

1. Wash,clean and cut the chicken breast into 2-in dices.
2. Marinate it with soy sauce, garlic paste, 2 tblsp onion paste, oregano, thyme, red chilli powder and black pepper.
3. Heat oil in a wok. Saute the remaining onion paste till it turns translucent.
4. Add in the chicken pieces and let the sear.
5. Once they are done, add in the remaining marinade and tomato puree.
6. Cook till done. Adjust the salt if required.
7. Serve hot with steamed rice.
8. Thank me if you like it ....don't curse me, if you don't.

Note: Please suggest a name ...I can't think of any.
