One of my go-to proteins is chicken. Super easy to cook, extremely versatile in terms of flavour and comes together pretty fast. Great for weekday dinners! I love experimenting with chicken and trying flavours from different cuisines. Not only does this give us variety for our meals, but also helps me learn and love many more styles of cooking. This recipe is adapted from some of Malayali food I’ve had over the years (aka food from Kerala or Mallu food :)). Mallu food is super delicious, peppery, punchy and downright awesome! I make it a point to try as many restaurants and recipes of this cuisine as I can. This pepper chicken is an attempt to bring some of that awesomeness into my kitchen.
