Easy Sauteed Chicken Breast Recipe
4 pieces Chicken breasts cut into cubes
1 tsp ginger-garlic coarse paste
2 onions chopped
Salt to taste
1 slit green chilli
Pinch of paprika
Pinch of pepper
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tbsps Greek Yoghurt.
Marinate the chicken breasts for 15 minutes with the salt, pepper, lemon juice and 1 tsp olive oil.
In a pan add the olive oil and sauté the coarse ginger-garlic paste till pink.
Add the chopped onions and sauté.
Add the marinated chicken along with the juices and cook until nice and tender.
We Indians like our food a little spicy so I added a little paprika.
Once the chicken is done, transfer to a serving bowl and drizzle some whipped yoghurt over it. If you are not counting your calories then you can add fresh cream but then I have found that Greek yoghurt gives the same velvety texture of cream for a fraction of the calories.
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve.
My chica made a meal of the Easy Sauteed Chicken Breast Recipe and a glass of mint-coriander flavoured buttermilk but you can serve it with bread or roti.
