  • If you don’t get minced chicken, then take some semi frozen boneless chicken breast and grind them into mince in a mixer grinder
  • Semi frozen will help the chicken to remain a bit coarse
  • Keeping in fridge, make the chicken chilled which help the the cutlet retain its shape easily.
  • You can also make it and freeze it 1 month before hand
  • Always apply little water/oil in your palm before making the cutlet.
