Sweet Chilli Chicken | Lonumedhu

Sweet Chilli Chicken


Crispy bite sized pieces of chicken in a sweet, spicy and buttery tomato-based sauce. Serve it with some plain rice and salad for an easy yet fulfilling meal.

In our recipe we’ve used Heinz Tomato Ketchup, which we got from one of our partners Standard & Origin (S&O). Heinz Tomato Ketchup is tangy and slightly sweet with a rich tomato taste. It is the perfect sauce for this dish as it caramelized quite nicely when cooked, giving the chicken pieces an extra layer of flavour.


Serves: 2-3



For the chicken

  • 450g skinless boneless chicken breast
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. chilli powder
  • ¼ cup corn flour
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

For the sauce

  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 garlic (chopped)
  • 1/3 cup Heinz Tomato Ketchup
  • 2 tbsp. Honey
  • ½ tsp. chilli powder



  1. Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces.
  2. Add the chicken, salt, chilli powder and corn flour to a bowl and mix well to give the chicken pieces a good coating.
  3. Heat the 1/3 cup vegetable oil in a pan and once the oil is well heated, add the chicken pieces.
  4. Fry on medium high heat. After 5 minutes, flip the chicken pieces and fry for another 5 minutes. The chicken should look golden brown now. Once done, remove to a plate and set aside.
  5. Melt butter in another pan and add the chopped garlic and then sauté for half a minute. Then add Heinz Tomato Ketchup, honey and chili powder.
  6. Stir fry for 1 minute.
  7. Add the chicken pieces, stir until it’s fully coated with the sauce and that’s it.
