3.Take the chicken pieces out from the marinade and coat them with cornflour and black pepper. Discard marinade.

4.Heat oil in a skillet, saute minced garlic for a couple of minutes. Add chicken pieces and saute them at high heat for 7-10 min or until the chicken changes color (slight brown). Cover and cook for 7 minutes or until the chicken is tender. Add 2 tablespoon water, if you think chicken is sticking to the pan.
