Chicken Cutlet Recipe / Chicken Patties

        Chicken Cutlets / Chicken Cutlets Indian Style is my favorite snack from my Childhood. My mom use to make this yummy chicken patties very often.I love homemade cutlets than store bought ones because of its freshness and taste. By following some tips we can make crispy chicken cutlets. This recipe make about 15 cutlets which is enough for a family of 4-5 people. 
       This hot and spicy chicken cutlets with a cup of hot coffee tastes heavenly. There are two methods to make this chicken cutlet first method is to cook chicken in water separately with some salt then shred the chicken and combining everything. But I prefer the second method (which I have shared in this page) to get a better taste and crispness. This Chicken Cutlets can be used as a stuffing inside many dishes,even in buns to make chicken burger.It is a great party appetizer as well. This chicken patties are crunchy crispy and are delicious too. You can make veg cutlets, paneer cutlets and even egg cutlets, just replace the chicken with cooked veggies , paneer or boiled eggs.


Serving Size           : 5 people (makes 15 pieces)

Cooking Time        : 40 minutes
Difficulty: Spice Level:

500 g Boneless chicken pieces
1 tbsp  Oil
1(200 g) Onion(finely Chopped)
1 tbsp Ginger Garlic Paste
2 tbsp Chili powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Garam masala powder
1/2 tsp pepper powder

salt to taste
boiled potatoes
handful  Coriander leaves
Eggs (season with salt and pepper)
1 cup bread crumbs (I have used Italian bread crumbs)
4 Tbsp Oil for shallow frying

Cooking Method

Step 1) Clean the boneless chicken pieces and blot it well with a paper towel to remove excess moisture from the chicken .Chicken should be dry for this recipe.Mince the chicken in a blender and keep it aside.


Step 2) To make chicken Cutlet heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and add the finely chopped onions and some salt.Once the onions are golden add the masalas Ginger Garlic Paste , Chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder and mix it once


Step 3) Add the minced Chicken Pieces add some salt and pepper, and mix it well with the Onion masala mixture and cook it for few minutes until the chicken is fully cooked.The mixture should be dry

Step 4) Once the chicken is well done turn of the heat and allow the mixture to cool .Then transfer the cooked chicken into a mixing jar and add 2 boiled potatoes (mash the potatoes well) and also add a handful of coriander leaves and combine everything should be able to hold shape when rolled into balls

Step 5) Roll a small portion of the mixture into medium sized ball and flatten it between the palms to give it shape. similarly do it for the rest.It makes around 15 patties from 500 g chicken.


Step 6) Now to coat the cutlets break 2 eggs add some salt and pepper to season and beat it well.
We also need some bread crumbs.I have used Italian Bread crumbs (plain bread crumbs will also taste good) Now everything is set.Dip the cutlets in beaten eggs and then roll it into breadcrumbs make sure that all the sides are nicely coated.Then tap it to remove any excess crumbs or this extra crumbs spoils the oil


Step 7) Now the final step is to fry the cutlets. To shallow fry heat 4 tbsp of oil(you can also deep fry ) , place the chicken cutlets and fry until golden brown. Oil should be in medium heat while frying.If the temperature of the oil is too hot then the outer surface will become dark soon and the cutlets wont taste very good and at the same time if the oil is at low temperature then the cutlets will soak more oil and it wont be crispy.

The cutlets are nice and brown on one side ,now flip it to the other side and again fry until golden brown.Now the cutlets are crispy on the both sides, carefully remove from the oil and place it on a wire rack


Step 8) To keep the cutlets crispy 
Place the cutlets on a wire rack . If you place it on paper towel to remove excess oil then the steam will be trapped under the food and the cutlets will turn soggy, so to keep the cutlets crisper place it on a cooling rack so that air can circulate underneath and the food will stay crispy for a long time.

Our Delicious Chicken Cutlets are ready to be enjoyed with Ketchup and hot Coffee!!!! Happy Cooking ....
