Chicken bell pepper stir fry is one of our leftover food experiments! We use asian inspired ingredients for the sauce. Because how easy this recipe is, it’s suitable for quick dinner.
As a family of chicken lovers, we have many chicken recipes. For examples
- Indonesian fried chicken,
- grilled chicken, opor ayam (chicken coconut milk sauce),
- pepes ayam (chicken wrap with banana leaves),
- chicken satay, and many more!
Before I tell you how to make this chicken bell pepper stir fry, there is a story behind this recipe. After my sisters and I made Vietnamese Spring Rolls, there were a few ingredients left like bell peppers and other vegetables. Because Indonesian cuisines rarely used bell pepper, I tried experimenting to cook the bell peppers along with chicken. And I also made special asian inspired sauce that tested sooo good.
Because I got good compliments from people who tried it, they ask me to share the recipe and publish it on my blog. Find it on recipe box below.
