It is mostly served with mashed potatoes and sauted veggies , today I am gonna serve with herb rice .

Star Ingredient :

Amul Butter

Main Ingredients :

  • Chicken Fillet (4 breast pieces cut in halves in butterfly style )
  • Amul butter 100gm
  • Herbs — Few sprigs of parsley and thyme
  • 3 eggs
  • Bowl full of breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 4 teaspoon of Parmesan cheese
  • Bread crumbs ( take a bowl ful)
  • Flour for coating or according to your requirement
  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
  • Salt according to taste
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 to 3 cloves of mashed garlic
  • Any vegetable oil for frying20170526_191704 (1)



The most important thing is to make a herb butter — take some softened butter mix it with  fresh parsley, thyme and oregano, and mashed garlic . Put it in the refrigerator for 5 min to freeze the butter for sometime.20170526_163955

Meanwhile cut the chicken breasts from the middle portion slowly putting your knife through it into a butterfly shape , be careful not to tear the joint .  Pound the fillet a little bit and then put in some salt, pepper and lime juice.

Bring out the butter from the frige , put it in a piping bag and slowly put the butter on the middle of the  open breast fillet , then wrap it around into like a  roulade.  Repeat the same procedure for all the chicken fillet .Keep it on the fridge for a half an hour.20170526_163924

Prepare the coating with beating the eggs in one bowl,  mix some paprika with the flour on another , and breadcrumbs with some parmesan cheese and dried herbs ( oregano and thyme) on another plate.

Bring out the chicken roulade from the rerigerator,  dust it flour, after dusting dip it into egg , then onto the breadcrumbs , it’s better if you can repeat the coating once agin with egg and breadcrumbs , so as to seal the butter inside and  that there is no chance of the butter oozing out — 🙂20170526_163827

Put all the coated chicken on the fridge  again for a period of half an hour.

Now deep fry all the chicken  one by one .20170526_220720

    ‘Cosy Crime’ is such a woolly term, isn’t it? I take it to mean something where there’s a murder, but you don’t see the blood, or where what people thought was a crime turns out to have a rational explanation (same with the ghost story really). One editor of my acatcinuqnae described cosy crime as ‘Morse in 2000 words’.
