Pepper Chicken Chettinad

My daughter turned 2 this past saturday – it has been incredibly busy leading up to it with work and planning for that party. So many details have gone into it that I will need to put it together in a separate post. Will try to get this up sometime this week!

The week prior to her birthday was definitely a celebration week too. This chicken recipe kicked it off! The spice in this is definitely hot, but the flavours are definitely yummilicious. I paired it with the biryani instead of going with plain white rice, but I am sure that should be ok if you end up making that!

Definitely recommend making this dish! K loved the peppery spice. My daughter is in this chicken craze phase at the moment, and this was terribly spicy for her little tongue but she kept asking for more chicken 🙂

If you are not into spicy curries, you can try the **Chicken Chettinad**
