1 tbs Adobo seasoning

1 tbs sesame seeds

cooked rice to serve


Toast sesame and nigella seeds on frying pan, for couple of seconds, until fragrant, keep aside.

In a deep frying pan or wok fry chicken and onions on butter, seasoned with Adobo and smoked paprika powder. When chicken is ready and onions soft, stir in red pepper and remove from fire, mix well.
