This is one among the most easiest and tasty non veg starter. I make these often with a little change of marination ingredients.This recipe i try mostly so i am posting it here. Vegetarians can use cheese fingers instead of chicken pieces with the same recipe.
- 200 grams chicken breasts cut into thin long fingers
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- few cornflakes crushed(optional)
- 2 tea spoons dry oregano
- 2 tea spoons of chili flakes
- 1 egg
- 2 table spoons cornflour
- 1/2 tea spoon pepper powder
- 1/2-1 tea spoon chili powder
- 1 table spoon lemon juice
- 1 table spoon ginger-garlic paste
Wash the chicken pieces and pat dry them on kitchen towel. Mix all the ingredients listed under the marinade in a bowl. add the chicken pieces in it and mix . Keep in refrigerator for marination at least for 1-2 hours or even overnight will do.
Heat oil for deep frying in a wok.Mix chili flakes,crushed cornflakes and oregano with the breadcrumbs and spread them on a plate.
Roll this marinated chicken fingers in the breadcrumbs mixture and deep fry them till golden brown on a medium flame. Do not keep the flame very high or else the chicken fingers wont get cooked inside.Chicken should also not get overcooked,it should remain tender. So 2-3 mins on medium flame are enough for a single chicken finger to get cooked properly.
Serve this hot chicken fingers with tomato ketchup or any cheesy dip.
Preparation Time : 10 mins (Excluding marination time)
NOTE: Crushed cornflakes are optional so if u do not want to use them then u can skip them.
My vegetarian friends can try this same recipe with processed cheese fingers.
