Quick and easy soy chicken

This is one of my favourite easy-to-make healthy chicken recipes. No deep-frying, no added salt. I’ve used chicken breast for this recipe. You can use chicken pieces with bones as well. They come out softer than the boneless ones. The onions and the bell peppers add to the crunchiness and the nutritive value of the dish.

  • chicken breast – 2 (or 1/2 kilo chicken) cut into bite-size pieces. 
  • 2 onions, 1/2 red bell pepper, 1/2 green bell pepper – cubed
  • 2-3 green chillies – minced (depending on your spice tolerance)
  • ginger-garlic paste – 1 tsp
  • soy sauce – 1 tbsp
  • spring onions – the green part, finely chopped
  • sesame oil – 2 tsp
  • pepper – 1 tsp


  1. Marinate the chicken in pepper and soy sauce for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan, add the ginger-garlic paste and minced chillies. Saute until you get an aroma.
  3. Add the marinated chicken, sprinkle a little water and mix well. Keep covered and cook on low flame for about 15 minutes or until the chicken is almost cooked.
  4. Add the onions and bell peppers and saute for 5 minutes more. Take off the heat and garnish with spring onions.
