Chicken with garlic and sweet chili

This is a great dish - with many shortcuts. It gets most of its flavor from marinated garlic cloves in chili, and regular sweet chili sauce. Awfully tasty! The heat and sharpness is mellowed by the dairy - this dish requires both creme fraiche AND cream - but low-fat alternatives work fine. My sister makes this every once in a while, although I think the baby corn is my own addition.

Chicken with garlic and sweet chili
Serves 3-4

2 large chicken breasts
1 jar of baby corn (or by all means, fresh or frozen. About 200 g should be right)
1 red bellpepper
1 yellow onion
olive oil
1 small jar of garlic cloves marinated in chili
250 ml cream
200 ml creme fraiche
4-5 tbsp sweet chili sauce

Cut the chicken, baby corn, onion and pepper into bite-sized pieces. Brown the chicken in olive oil, and add corn, onion and pepper. Fry for a few minutes. Add the garlic cloevs, the cream and the creme fraiche, and let it simmer together for a few minutes. Season to taste with sweet chili sauce and salt.
