Hunters Hot Pot Chicken with Pineapple

Today's recipe is inspired by Chiappa sisters' hunters hot pot chicken recipe recently uploaded to you tube. Here you can check out their original recipe. 

I decided to give this dish a try but with a little bit of pineapple twist and some Indian spices. And I must say it really worked out very well. Pineapple really added a little bit of extra kick to the dish while keeping the original dish's integrity. 

Among the three sisters the eldest Michela is my favorite ;-). 

This dish is fairly straight forward and yet brings out a lot of taste and flavors. Here's what you will need for this dish...


  • 4 chicken legs with skin on.
  • 3 green chilies finely chopped.
  • 1 big onion chopped.
  • 3 large tomatoes or tin tomatoes. I used tin tomatoes for this recipe, especially for the red color. 
  • 2 capsicums cut into long strips. Or any veggie of your choice i.e. Carrots.
  • 1 tsp red chili powder, black pepper, coriander powder and garam masala. 
  • 1 lemon juice. 
  • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped. 
  • 1 inch ginger chopped. 
  • Rosemary, finely chopped. 
  • Pineapple diced. 
  • 4 tsp Olive oil and butter. 
  • Cream, optional.
  • Salt to taste.


  • Take a non stick pan on high heat. 
  • Add olive oil. Add butter. 
  • Once hot add chicken seasoned with salt, black pepper, red chili powder, garam masala and lemon juice. 
  • Fry it on both sides for a total of 10 to 12 minutes to get good brown color. 
  • Take the chicken pieces out in a plate. Leave any oil, butter and chicken juices in the pan. 
  • Add onions to the pan and saute them. 
  • Add garlic and ginger. 
  • Add tomatoes. Mix them well. 
  • Add salt to taste. 
  • Cook them for 10 to 12 minutes. 
  • Add capsicum and chicken. 
  • Cook for another 30 minutes and keep mixing them in between. 
  • After 30 minutes add pineapple and cream. Mix them well. Because pineapple will take no time to cook.
  • Cook it for another 10 minutes or until the chicken is tender. 
  • And that's it. 
  • Serve it with hot Indian bread, naan or basmati rice. 

Hey I am no expert but I do hope you will like this dish.
