Green chili chicken curry is simple and easy dish to make. If you are looking to make a chicken side dish for chapati or Chicken biryani . You should give this recipe a try. When I first saw this recipe name, I thought it’s gonna be too spicy.
But it was not that spicy and it depends on how many green chilies and how strong the green chilies are. Adding coconut and fennel gives the dish a rich flavor.
