Crispy fried chicken tossed in garlic, onion, capsicum and a spicy Chinese style Sauce. This Indo Chinese Chilli Chicken Dry doesn't need any introduction. After Indian Cuisine, Indo Chinese cuisine is most popular in India. From fine dine to street food we will definitely have Indo Chinese dishes everywhere.

Making Restaurant style Chilli Chicken Dry at home is not that difficult task. I still remember, during my post graduation hostel days, we rarely get tasty meals. So on weekends we often skip meals & go outside to enjoy chilli Chicken in the best seller restaurant of the town.

You can relish it with some noodles or fried rice. Dry Chilli Chicken is mainly enjoyed as appetiser or starters, but it tastes delicious with Indian bread.

Let's check out the Ingredients & recipe to make this delicious Chicken recipe. If you like this Dry Chilli Chicken recipe then please comment down below, I would love to read your thoughts!!!!
