Sumptuously moist, flavourful and tender chicken steak with a light creamy pepper sauce, side of mixed veggies, some fries and garlicky buttered toasted rolls.

Ingredients for Light Creamy Pepper Sauce
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1/2 tbsp. flour
- 1 tsp. corn flour
- 1 tbsp. black pepper
- pinch of garam masala
- salt to taste
- 3 tbsp. fresh cream or sour cream
- 1 small onion chopped finely
- 1 cup chicken stock
The steak can be served with rice, or mashed potatoes, or even roasted baby potatoes…whatever you like best. 🙂
For the Chicken
You can either: Grill the chicken steak on a bbq grill on both sides until done (about 12-15 minutes per side)
Heat a hot steak pan or heavy griddle, add 2 tbsp. of oil to it and fry the steak on medium heat for about 10 minutes per side. Then increase the heat and give it a final fry of about 3-4 minutes per side or until it begins to slightly char. Do not crowd the pan, fry a few pieces at a time.
For the Light Creamy Pepper Sauce
Heat the butter, add the onions and fry until golden. Add the flour, pepper, garam masala and salt and cook on low heat for 3 minutes, then slowly add the stock and the corn flour. Cook until the stock thickens slightly, then add the cream and stir together. Let this simmer for a few minutes, adjust taste and turn off.
For the veggies, I boiled the carrots and peas for just about 5 minutes, until they are halfway done, then drain the water. Added the sweet corn from a can. Then in a pan, heat 1 tbsp. of butter, once it melts add the combined veggies and stir fry on low heat for a few minutes. Sprinkle salt, pepper and a dash of cumin powder. Turn off the heat and serve! 🙂
Serve your steak with the sauce drizzled over it, and with the sides of your choice! Enjoy!
