Something about red spicy food catches my eye and stuns me every single time because they are truly delicious foods in the whole world. Recently I have tried one of these spicy foods, which is Dragon Chicken.
Most of the people think it’s unhealthy because it implies that it would contain a little more oil. When I make it at home, I use a very minimal amount of oil. Instead, it is pretty unhealthy, but the taste of this makes you forget about everything.
Dragon Chicken works best when you marinate the chicken and fry it then sauté it with some spices and some sauce which spice up and flavour the dish. I garnished this plate with quickly chopped spring onions. To enjoy this, I’ve combined my steamed rice with this spicy chicken dish. Enjoy!
