Chicken Jalfrezi

I hate Sandra Lee from the food network (think tablescapes, matching kitchen decorations and her clothing to the food for some elaborate theme). She has a program that uses store bought ingredients and she adds something to make them more special. I had to post this recipe because it is something that I can throw together quickly for a weeknight meal when I am craving Indian food (which is almost anytime).

Chicken Jalfrezi
1 tbsp oil
1 lb chicken breast
1 green bell pepper
2 roma tomatoes
2 scallions ( I normally use 1/2 of a large red onion)
1 15oz jar Patak's Jalfrezi cooking sauce
pinch of cumin
pinch of coriander
pinch of tumeric
pinch of garlic powder
5-6 red chilies (we like things spicy)
salt and pepper
steamed white rice

Heat large skillet or wok on medium heat.
Dice chicken into bite size chunks and season with salt and pepper.
Add oil and chicken to the pan and cook for 5 minutes.
Dice green pepper, tomato, and onion and add to the pan.
Cook for 3-4 more minutes.
Add cooking sauce, spices, and chilies to pan.
Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
Serve with steamed white rice.

This looks really good and is entirely too complicated for Sandra!
