Chilli devilled chicken recipe. Mmm, yummy. It is spicy and juicy.  Let’s prepare Sri Lankan style chili devilled chicken. This is a popular dish and never miss with Sri Lankan Fried rice. Moreover, can serve it with cooked rice, noodles. Like other Asian dishes, this one also a bit spicy, but you can cook it as per your taste.

Since these are bit spicy foods, you can use a slice of cucumber or yogurt dip to cool down in your mouth. I recommended using a chicken drumstick or boneless chicken. In this recipe, I use a shallow fry technique, it’s healthier than deep fry. Apart from that, we use Ginger, Garlic which can give more health benefits. Therefore, this is a healthy chicken stir fry recipe.
