Spicy Garlic Chicken

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Back to work...that's kind of boring, that too Monday is the most difficult day atleast for me.I still remember the childhood days when I used feel so bad on Mondays. We will be hunting for white ribbon, polishing canvas shoe, would run now then to the kitchen questioning mom on where she had left my stuff. Every Monday morning would be a big headache for my mom as I would make a fuzz to get up in the morning after sleeping till 10 during weekends. Good old childhood memories !!!! Now I have taken my Mom's place..

We normally reserve the special cooking to Sunday and I would always skip breakfast and will eagerly wait for the delicious lunch. Chicken is my favorite and I love almost all varieties. I had prepared Garlic Chicken for Sunday Lunch and we simply loved it. Garlic and Pepper lovers will surely like this one. Garlic Chicken is a flavorful and quickie and it turned out to be a wonderful sidedish. Cook Eat Enjoy !!!
