Lemon and Pepper Chicken Recipe

Try this quick and easy lip-smacking, tastebud-tingling chicken that will leave your family begging for more.


I have always had a love for all things lemony, be it deserts, curries or snacks. This recipe hence evolved to infuse fresh, lemony flavours into the classic Pepper Chicken recipe. The addition of Soya Sauce gives the curry a fantastic twist and makes it a finger-lickingly great fusion curry.
