Chicken 65 Recipe - Restaurant Style Chicken 65

Chicken 65
I've always wondered how chicken 65 in restaurants alone turn very soft and juicy. I didn't give a serious thought until the little one started tasting and liking chicken. Now that she likes chicken 65, I browsed around and finalised this recipe which turned out to be a hit. Also one of my friend and regular reader had asked for this recipe long back and this is for you Manjula :) For all the vegetarians check out gobi 65 recipe :)

My Notes:

  • The time for marinade is very important to get juicy soft chicken 65 else it would turn hard and rubbery. So make sure to marinade atleast for 2 hours atleast.
  • You can also include small chopped pieces of ginger and garlic with the tempering ingredients.
  • You can also skip the yellow yolk of the egg and just add only the white part.
  • Choose tender chicken thigh part and cut them into small bite sized pieces.

  1. is there any other alternative of deep frying the chicken?Can we grill it in microwave?Please tell,i am a newbie in kitchen and i very much want to make this recipe.

  2. steps shown so well. I am told that the chicken 65 name came about because they needed broilers - young and tender 65 days old?? - for the dish. I do not know if that is true. But we have so many dishes that have taken off from this - even Alu 65!!

  3. @CallmeMamun: Not sure..I havent tried it guess it will work if we keep in grill mode around 200deg C but not sure on the timing, try it for 15mins, check then grill it accordingly.

    @radha : I have read so many stories why its called chicken 65 but really not sure which is true :)
