Servings 4 people


  • 2 chicken breast 200gm
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp ginger-garlic powder or paste
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • Oil for frying


To marinate the chicken:

  • Cut the chicken breast diagonally.
  • Place all the pieces on the chopping board and cover with plastic wrap. Pound the pieces with the help of a meat mallet. You can also use a rolling pin or mortar to flatten them out. Each piece should be half an inch thick.
  • In a bowl, add soy sauce, ginger-garlic powder, lemon juice and salt. Mix it. Add all the chicken pieces. Marinate it overnight.

To make the chicken cutlets:

  • Take 3 shallow bowls or plates. In the first shallow bowl or plate, add all-purpose flour. In the second shallow bowl, crack 3 eggs and whisk it. In the last plate, pour the breadcrumbs. Season all three with salt and pepper.
  • Take a marinated chicken piece, place it into the flour mix. Coat it nicely. Shake off the excess.
  • Transfer it into the egg mix, dip both sides. Lift it out and allow the excess to drip off.
  • Place the chicken cutlet in the third plate. Evenly coat both sides with breadcrumbs. Repeat the same process for all the pieces.
  • Place all the breaded chicken cutlets on a large plate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a wok over medium flame. Take the chicken cutlets out of the refrigerator. Allow them to come to room temperature.
  • Add the cutlet to the wok. Fry on medium-high flame for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown in colour.
  • Take it out and keep it on paper towel. Fry rest of the cutlets in the same manner.
  • Serve them hot with french fries and coriander-mint mayonnaise.
