Chicken Somethings…

March 19, 2013

Chicken somethings are somethings which are cooked when you are totally bored of the regular stuff (and yet do not want to go out and buy a KFC burger). And guess what- these somethings taste quite good! 🙂

Okay, first the ingredients:-

Chicken – 4 pieces


Garlic Cloves- 8 pieces

Ginger- 1 inch

Lemon juice- 1/2

green chillies- 2 (more if you want it spicier)

Red Chillies- 2

Red Chilli Powder- 1/3 tsp

Turmeric powder- 1/3 rd tsp

Salt- as per requirement

Bread crumbs-

Egg- 1

Vegetable oil – 6 tbsps

Mode of preparation


Onion-garlic-ginger-chilli paste

Make a paste of onion, garlic, ginger, green chillies and 1 red chilli. Adjust the amount of chillies according to your taste.


Marinated chicken

Marinate the chicken pieces in this paste, lemon juice, turmeric powder, salt and a few drops of oil for 3-4 hours.

After 4 hours,  microwave for 4 mins. This makes the chicken soft.

Now beat the egg and add some red chilli powder and salt to it. Dip each chicken piece in the beaten egg and dust it with bread crumbs, to which a bit of red chilli powder has been added (or you could use corn flakes dust, dust of biscuits instead of bread).

Now sprinkle a few drops on oil on each of the pieces and grill them for 8 mins. You would see them turn golden brown after some time. Flip them, sprinkle a few drops of oil and grill for another 4 mins or till it turns golden.

chicken somethings, which go with everything! :-)
