First Non-Veg Post: Chilli Chicken

Chicken is the most common non-vegeterain dish. If a person is non-veg means we take it for granted that he/she eats chicken..thats the popularity. There are numerous varieties that can be done with chicken. Even chicken curry can be done in many ways esp in india and depends on where you live like kerala chicken curry,mughalai chicken,chicken masala,butter chicken etc.. Sometimes i confuse seeing the masalas available at grocery stores for chicken. No matter how you prepare the chicken itself is delicious.
