Baked chicken chops



The other day I asked my husband that I would like have something to have with tea in the evening, but I was not in the mood to cook. My hubby dear, who loves eating out, literally sprang on his feet and went to take out something which could go with tea. After a long time he came back with two patties, but unfortunately those tasted awful. Our tea drinking session became a flop show due to that. We vowed that not to buy those very particular patties in future. So next day, before he could suggest anything I decided to bake chicken chops. The previous day I couldn’t do the same, because I didn’t thaw the chicken. And it was a real hit. Anyway, it is one of the easiest things to cook with minimum effort. Only thing is that it takes half an hour to bake.  Here is the recipe,

One cup thawed ground chicken or turkey

One egg

One tsp. ginger paste

One tsp. garlic paste

One tbsp. butter in room temperature ( I used margarine)

Salt to taste

Enough bread crumb to make a thick dough


Method:

Wash a ground chicken, and try to drain the water fully. I put the chicken in the big sieve, and put it on a sauce pan. Take a big bowl; put everything into the bowl except bread crumb. Start folding, adding bread crumb slowly until the dough becomes tight. Make small ping-pong ball size portion, give a shape of ball and slightly flatten them. Preheat the oven at 350 degree F. Take a cookie tray, lay a parchment paper on it and arrange the chops. Bake for 20 minutes, and then flip the other side of the chops and bake for another 10 minutes or until the chops become hard. Serve hot with tea or coffee.
