Sweet & Sour Capsicum Chicken Recipe


This vegetable of Solanaceae group is well known for it's nutritional values and health benefits. Yes I am talking about Capsicum which helps to lower cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, peptic ulcer, cancer and especially menopausal problems. Various studies showed that capsicum can be used as daily health supplement.

 I like the flavour of capsicum and I often use it in my cooking. Believe me, the moment I add capsicum into my cooking it adds a new flavour to my dish which I really enjoy. Today I add this to my chicken dish and prepared a tasty dish Sweet & Sour Capsicum Chicken.
