Marinate chicken with chili sauce, Soya sauce, pepper powder and vinegar. Set aside for at least 45 minutes. For better results 2 hours is best. Meanwhile chop your onions and bell pepper.

Sprinkle the flours on the chicken along with salt and mix well. Add chili powder. If you wish to use egg, you can add it now. Mix well.

Prepare the sauce .Add Soya sauce, chili sauce, red chili powder and sugar (optional) to a bowl and mix well.


Heat oil in a pan and deep or shallow fry till the chicken is done. Keep stirring to fry evenly. Do not over fry, chicken tends to turn hard. Chicken can also be grilled at 240 C for 20 to 25 minutes in a preheated oven. When the chicken is cooked, drain them on a kitchen tissue.

Remove off excess oil from the pan, just keep 2 spoons oil in the pan. Add garlic and fry for about a minute, add onions, capsicum, spring onions, and celery and green chilies and fry till they turn slightly soft for about a minute or so.

Pour the sauce and let the sauce bubble up well. Add the fried chicken, sauté on high flame for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve chili chicken hot as appetizer with fried rice or noodles.
