Braised Chicken with Lychees & Capsicum

Oooh lychee season is here again! It reminds me of a recipe which has been in my draft, it is time to share with you this delicious braised chicken dish which incorporate with lychee! Instead of using fresh lychees, canned lychees is used as some of the sweet lychee syrup is needed for the braising sauce. I've used boneless chicken thigh meat as it is more tender and cook really fast too.  Yummilcious to go along with a bowl of warm rice!
