Shimla murgh

I knew I would make chicken with peppers, but did not know how or what preparation! First I thought, I would just do a short cut and fry chicken strips with sliced peppers and onions. This was the plan on Friday night. But, as my craving for some hot spicy food increased over the weekend, I found myself with a changed plan on Sunday noon while cooking lunch. I decided to do some semi-dry chicken preparation in sort of Indian style with chunks of bell peppers. It was an experiment and turned out great. Though for Blaž it was almost too hot towards the end, I really enjoyed the hint of chili peppers. It deliciously satisfied my cravings for spicy food!!
