Garlic Chicken with Almond and Pepper Sauce

On with 0 Comment
Garlic Chicken with Almond and Pepper SauceGarlic is used in different ways in chicken recipes. In today's recipe, garlic is used in both paste and whole form. The buttery pepper sauce used for this chicken is quite spicy and creamy at the same time. Use a small tender chicken for this recipe so that the pepper sauce is absorbed deep into the meat. Almonds are used to get the creamy and buttery texture. You can use the same method for turkey or duck meat too. I've grilled this chicken in a microwave. If you have a charcoal grill, you can directly grill it to get the best flavor and aroma. You can also stuff some vegetables in this chicken to make a slightly different variant of this recipe. This scrumptious chicken goes well with fried rice and chips.
