Sweet and Sour Balti Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kevin Bradley

This is my family's favourite. Hardly a weekend goes by without my having to cook this one up. You can make it as fiery as you like but two green chillies is about right for us .Gorgeous!

Wow, this was terrific! Just the right blend of spicey and sweet. Definitely a keeper. I actually added two serrano chiles in addition to the ones in the recipe, and it was just spicey enough for my husband, but not too spicey, so everyone else enjoyed it as well. Thanks for a new "family recipe"!
