Chilli Chicken With Raisins


Remember the grilled chicken wings and chili honey chicken sesame seeds?? Both with honey for the tinge of natural sweetness. The other natural ingredient for sweetness compared to white sugar is raisins. An excellent healthy snack and excellently nice for salads too. For this dish, all you got to do is simply cook - add ingredients, watch over, stir fry and you get tender chicken in a spicy-sweet thick gravy.

Ingredients
400g/ 1/4 chicken - cut into bite sizes
3 red chillies - sliced into medium size pieces
1/2 inch ginger - sliced thinly
5 garlic - sliced thinly
1tsp lime juice
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
50g (1/2 handful) raisins
2 sprigs coriander leaves - sliced thinly
Spring onions for garnishing (optional)
3 tbsp oil
Salt for taste (taste before adding)

Method:
In heated oil, saute chillies, ginger and garlic.
Add chicken, stir and pour water (about 1/4 cup).
Simmer till chicken becomes tender.
Add lime juice, soy sauce, raisins and salt.
Stir all together till chicken is coated with a dry thick gravy.
Off heat and combine in coriander leaves.
Garnish with spring onions.
