  1. Marinating Chicken cubes:

    This is a very important step to ensure you enjoy the best flavor of your chicken. In a bowl marinate the washed chicken cubes in olive oil, black pepper, salt,ginger-garlic cilantro paste, and set aside.

    In a medium pot, on a high flame add in the canola oil. Once the oil is piping hot, add in your chopped garlic and stir for a sec.

  2. Add in your marinated chicken and let it cook on high flame just the like Chinese restaurant do. It will splatter some oil so be careful and have a good distance from it.
  3. After about 4 mins and all the pink is gone take it out and set aside to cool.
  4. Add in a tablespoon of oil add in your mixed veggies. Cover the pot and let it cook in its juices for about 3-4 mins and then stir.
