Chicken with Green Chillies

Is there anyone who doesn’t like Chinese dishes? Well I don’t think so.... I make a lot of Chinese chicken dishes and this one is a hit in my family.... My picky eater son loves this curry and he will eat this with noodles or chapathi happily.... only thing he will pick up and keep aside all the veggies I add and eat only the chicken pieces :D.... This recipe is from a book “My favourite Recipes Chinese” by Mrs. Bhanu Ravindran which my mom gifted me when she visited me after my wedding.... This has some of the best Chinese recipes and I have, over the years, tried almost all of them! This curry goes well with fried Rice, Noodles and even with chapathi......
