Chicken Chettinad:   Like us on Youtube for more Video Recipes
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…:)
