Chicken Steak

Servings : Serves 2-3

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


  • 500gm boneless chicken breast, trimmed and pounded lightly to flatten - marinate chicken in the ingredients below for at least 2 hours.
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 tbsp. ketchup
  • 1 tbsp. soya sauce
  • 1 tsp. garlic paste
  • 1 tsp. ginger paste
  • pinch of turmeric powder
  • pinch of tandoori masala
  • 1 tsp. red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp. red chilli flakes
  • juice of half a lemon

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. 🙂

I have served it here with Stir-Fried Veggies and Garlic Bread.

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!
