Another secret disclosed...

Okay. With a little apprehension, I am going to share my secret mustard chicken bites recipe. Yes yes, the same mustard chicken Ive blogged about over and over but never wanted to disclose the recipe for. Since no one in my nearest circle is left who has not tasted this delicious stuff from my kitchen, and I have plenty of other delicious cards in my possession, its time to pass on the treasure for someone else to receive wows and praises.

Disclaimer: If any of you use this recipe in a competition and win, you must claim me as the true winner! Seriously folks, at least send me a photo or a thank you note!

Honey mustard chicken served with hot sweet and sour sauce

The best thing about this recipe is that it can be served in different ways on different occasions with many different sauces and sides.

Mustard chicken with mild sweet and sour sauce

Mustard Chicken Bites

600 g boneless chicken
2 tbs ginger paste
2 tsp mustard paste
3 tbs worcestershire sauce
1 tbs vinegar
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp crushed black pepper
1 tsp salt
2 tbs cornflour
1 egg (M)
All purpose flour
Oil for frying

Cut chicken in bite size pieces.

In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients except flour and oil.

Marinate chicken in this mixture for atleast 2 hours. Tip: Overnight marination would bring out the best taste! Place in refrigerator.

Take out of the refrigerator and thread the chicken bites on tooth picks (2-3 pieces on each). This step is optional! I skip this when making as burger fillings or serving in gravy.

Next, coat the chicken with flour and put aside for 15 minutes. Tip: You can also freeze them after this step. Take out of the freezer whenever required, microwave for 15 seconds and proceed!

Deep fry in hot oil.

Once fried, place on kitchen papers to remove any excess oil.

Serve hot!

Here´s my favourite sauce to go with:

Hot sweet and sour sauce
Recipe courtesy: my sweet sister in law, Tasneem Saeed

1 cup vinegar
1 large green chili
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup ketchup

Cook vinegar with chopped chilies for 4-5 minutes. Strain the chilies from the vinegar and add rest of the ingredients into it (the liquid, ofcourse!). Cook until desired consistency is reached.

Alright, Im taking a bow here and awaiting your applause. Hurry!!!
