Ingredients:

For Marination:
Chicken thighs boneless - 1 lb
Chilly Pd - 2 tsp
Turmeric Pd - 1 tsp
Coriander Pd - 1 tsp
Garam Masala Pd - 1 tsp
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tsp each
Salt - 1 tsp
Vinegar or Lemon Juice - 2 tbsp
Mix all the above and let it sit for 15 to 20 min.

For Sauteing:
Onions Cut in rings - 1/2 onion
Basil / Mint Leaf - 10 leaf (optional),you can use any herbs you prefer like (rosemary ,sage , oregano )
Jalapenos - 2 whole with seeds cut into rounds,if you dont have jalapenos use green chillies for extra hot or bell pepper for mild spicy
Curry Leaf - 2 sprigs
Coconut oil -2 tsp
Mustards Seeds - 1 tsp 
Honey - 2 Tablespoon(optional)

MEthod:
1.Take a wide pan add oil ,once its hot add mustard seeds,once they splutter add curry leaf.
 2.Then add the marinated chicken and keep stirring,until its cooked and completely dry,you can see the stages of chicken cooking in below photos.

 3.When chicken is fully done and completely dry add jalapenos ,the jalapenos doesn't need to be cooked to softness,it can stay little crunchy.
My Dish became very spicy as i added extra one teaspoon of chilly powder while marinating so at this stage i added 2 tbsp of honey to balance out the spicy level.But if your dish is not spicy you can leave the honey too as it may save some calorie,but i have to tell you adding honey was one of the best thing i could do in this recipe because it gave an excellent taste in the entire recipe.
4.Now add Basil leaves and give a quick mix.
 5.Now switch off stove and add onions rings on top and give a stir or you can leave it like that while serving for decoration.I mixed it.And add some coriander leaf for extra flavour and for garnishing.

 Cocktail Chicken is ready to serve with Tea.
