Chicken Fatafat (Chicken super quick)

Chicken fatafat is my mom’s invention. I think it was because we would often want to have a tasty snack in the evenings and she wouldn’t have enough notice to conjure something. She came up with it for those times. Oh, and when those unexpected guests came in through the door, this preparation was awesome! Of course, it is not just a snack- you can choose to have it as part of a meal too.

Here is how it goes:


1 lb boneless chicken- its better to use thighs but breast tenders will do too.

Lemon juice from 1 lemon

salt to taste

1 tbsp. oil

Spring onions- about 4-5, chopped

1 tsp shredded ginger

Pepper to taste

Chilli flakes (optional)


Clean and wash the chicken well. Cut into small pieces. Then, use a fork and make holes in the chicken. This is to allow the marinade to go through to the inside of the piece. Add salt and lemon juice. Marinade for about 10 minutes. Heat oil in a pan. Add spring onion and ginger and sauté for a few minutes. Add the chicken and cook till tender. Add pepper and chilli flakes. Serve hot.

Simple and easy recipe. And it is quite delicious!! Definitely worth a try :)
