Chicken sukke - This is an easy chicken recipe that you can make quickly. Chicken is always handy if you want to make some quick and delicious side dish for roti. In my hometown this dish is served as a starter. It is very simple dish to prepare and my family loves it. I have garnished the dish with slightly fried onions and capsicums as these taste well with chicken. You can make this dish on weekend to treat your family. Also you can make raita to go with this spicy chicken dish.
