lazy cooks chicken sizzler.

Hi the mercury continues its southerly route i get more and more reluctant to enter the kitchen post sunset...but the tragedy of it all is that if you really really want to eat something...well then you gotta move!I made these chicken sizzlers last was perfect in this cold.At its heart and soul its a nita mehta recipe,tweaked away to suit me...also in all honesty i lost the recipe book!Anyway ziss is what i do........guys sorry about the lack of was too cold and i was too hungry!
1.700 gms chichen
2.1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
3.2tablespoons barbeque sauce(i used american garden)
4.1teaspoon mustard sauce
5.1 tablespoon tomato puree
6.1 tablespoon olive oil.
7.7-8 cloves of garlic,ground with 1 green chilli
8.1 tablespoon of honey.
9.salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
10.a handful of cashew.
11.1 tablespoon of cornflour dissolved in a quater cup of water.
1.Marinate the chicken in everything except the garlic-green chilli and cashew,at least for 2 hours.
2.After two hours,put about a tablespoon of oil in a pressure cooker and fry the garlic-green chilli..till it just starts to change colour...add the chicken(marinade and all)..add1/2cup of water......pressure cook for one whistle.Let the pressure drop...then take out the chicken pcs.......get the stove on and in the liquid thats in the pan add the handful of cashew and the cornflour,the mixture thickens and your sauce is ready!....please season acoording to your taste.
3.Chicken ready...the next element would be the veg,i cut some carrots and cauliflower,threw them in boiling salted water to which i had added a tablespoon of butter,took them out when they still had a bite to them,tossed them again(!) in butter,sprinkled salt n pepper....finito.Beans and broccoli also taste great like this.
4.The last element...french fries.i cut open a packet and deep fried...there was an option of baking them...but i prefer frying them!
5.Last but not the least ...if you have the sizzler plates..then you put the iron plate on the stove..get it red hot,put it on the wooden base,spread some cabbage leaves,then arrange the chicken on one side,pour a bit of the sauce on top.pile the veg on the other and put the fries in the centre.......yum!To carry on with the whole sizzle effect,take small pcs of really cold butter and put  in one or two places around the food(on the iron tray).If you dont have a sizzler plate..worry not!this will taste as good on your regular plate.
