Instructions
  1. Step 1: Seasoning the meat

    Empty the ground chicken into a mixing bowl. Add the chopped/ diced green chilies, onions and cilantro-coriander. Add all the dry spices, bread crumbs & mix well. Lastly, add the beaten eggs and bind well into the meat.
  2. Step 2: Shaping the cutlet

    Next, grab a chuck of the seasoned meat, and start shaping into a croquette/ cutlet shape. A quick way to do this is shape it into a ball first and then using your palms, gently pat /flatten it into a round flat disc. Choose a size that is convenient for you. I make an assortment of sizes and then let family members choose, depending on their appetite! The mix should be just wet enough to shape & hold together but not too wet that it breaks apart. Place each cutlet on a baking tray lined with foiled. Drizzle oil over the cutlets on pan.
  3. Step 3: Baking

    Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake the tray of Cutlets for 20 mins or until lightly brown. The baking process is not for browning (that’s where the frying comes in) but just to make sure they are cooked. Remove from bake and cool before frying.
  4. Step 4: Frying

    In a frying pan, heat oil. I like to flavor my oil with garlic or a mild dried spice – Cajun or BBQ powder – or even some turmeric & chili flakes. This of course is optional.

    Note: Dry spices burn easily, so be cautious or avoid. Once oil is hot enough (splatter stage), place the cutlets, batch by batch, in the pan & fry both sides for a min or till golden brown & crispy depending on your preference.
  5. Step 5: Pairing & serving the cutlets

    I served my cutlets with rice and a vegetable. They also go well with burger buns and on a salad.

    Another option is to break up the cutlets and serve it up as a rolled wrap with lettuce, peppers and a sauce of your choice… kind of like a burrito!

    If you really want to be adventurous, like me, make a Thai coconut curry or Indian curry base and add your left-over cutlets to this to serve as a completely new dish the next night for dinner. Your family will not know the difference and will appreciate your effort!
