One of my favourite childhood recipes cooked by my mom is Easy Creamy Milky Chicken. You must be wondering how a milk chicken dish would taste but believe me it is out of this world. I was a very fussy eater but I would relish this chicken made by my mom and the taste still lingers although it has been ages since I tasted non-veg.I am glad that I remember her recipe and cook it most of the time. Even my kids and others whom I have cooked it for really appreciate the taste. Unlike most Indian chicken recipes it is a very simple one with hardly any spices. It can double as a kid friendly recipe too as kids love the milky taste.
Whenever I was in the mood for light cooking I make this Easy Creamy Milky Chicken which is ready within 30 minutes!
Recipe for Easy Creamy Milky Chicken
½ kg chicken
2 onions chopped finely
1-inch ginger cut into juliennes
2 green chillies deseeded and slit
½ litre milk
1 tbsp ghee or butter
Salt to taste
1 tbsp Vinegar
Green chilli sauce
Coriander for garnishing
Heat the butter in a skillet; add the ginger and the green chillies.
Saute and add the long sliced onions. Sauté till onions turn pink and add the chicken. Sauté for a few minutes and add the milk.
Let it cook on medium fire till chicken is almost done. Now add the vinegar and salt. The vinegar helps to curdle the milk which coats the chicken pieces and gives it a unique taste.
Once the chicken is coated with the gravy add the chilli sauce.
Garnish the Easy Creamy Milky Chicken with fresh coriander and serve hot with naan, roti or even rice.
