Chicken Chettinad | Spicy Chicken Fry
I am a fan of Chettinad Cuisine and love the authentic spicy taste very much. Chicken Chettinad is a delicious and very popular dish in almost all Indian Non Veg restaurants. I tried this yesterday, when we had invited our friends for dinner. And it turned out awesome..! In this recipe, the chicken is cooked with spices and tastes great with parathas, naan, roti, chapathi or even plain boiled rice. You’ll love this simple and delicious Indian Chicken curry…:)
