Capsicum Chicken

Yesterday, I was asked by a very close friend of mine- Annie, on whether I have some dry Chicken recipe. I was suggesting her to try out my Pepper Chicken. Though she was initially doubtful, (so was ,I when I found the recipe), I cheered her on and guaranteed that it would turn out well…well enough to win her hubby’s heart just like I did mine. She was even sweet to send out the pic of her dish. And this was what she said, “Shaluuuuu, adipoli(brilliant!!!), My hubby finished it in one sitting..!!” Wow.. my joy knew no bounds!!

Coming back to this dish, for those of you who love the tangy taste of tomato, this one is for you!
