1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

1 onion
1 cup sweet chili sauce ( you can use tomato sauce as a substitute)
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoon garlic paste/2 cloves
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon coriander leaves (for garnish)

1. Cut chicken into small pieces.
2. Heat frying pan, add 1 tablespoon oil and fry chicken pieces.
3. Once it is cooked(brownish),place chicken into a bowl.
