Recipe of Cheesy Chicken chaat / Chicken Cheese canapes / Chicken Cheese Basket



Cheesy Chicken Chaat is an easy peasy lip smacking appetizer which I created in a short time . As I wanted to make something cheesy and easy too , I had these chaat baskets handy on my kitchen shelf , so made these beauties . Here is my recipe of Chicken cheese chaat .



INGREDIENTS : 


  • 150 gms boneless chicken 
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste 
  • 2 tbsp yoghurt 
  • 1 tsp paprika powder / cayyene powder / red chilly powder
  • 1 tsp lemon juice 
  • salt to taste 
  • 1/8 tsp garam masala powder 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil /oil 
  • 1 tsp tandoori masala 
  • 10-12 small chaat basket / canopes ( store brought or home made )
  • pinch red food colour ( optional) 
  • 1/2 -3/4 cup cheese grated 

METHOD: 

1. Wash, clean and chop chicken boneless into small pieces and marinate with 
ginger garlic , yogurt , paprika powder / cayenne powder / red chilly powder, lemon juice , salt , garam masala powder , tandoori masala, olive oil /oil and pinch red food colour for about 3-4 hours . ( I usually prefer marinating my chicken chunks overnight ) 


2. Heat heavy bottom pan , add 1 tbsp oil followed by marinated chicken and fry on medium flame for about 5- 6 minutes , flip the chicken and fry for more 3-4 minutes or until the chicken dries up (make sure you keep some thick gravy ), adjust salt and other seasonings. Off the gas . Side by side heat a coal until red , place this hot coal in between chicken pieces , and pour 1 tbsp oil / clarified butter . Cover the pan immediately to get smokey taste. 

3. Take small chaat basket ( home made or store brought ) add 1-2 tbsp chicken to it , top it with loads of cheese and bake in pre heat oven until the cheese melts . ( You can even fill the mixture in canapes too )

4. Serve with any kind of mayo dip or sauces / chutneys .




Note : 

You can add veggies of your choice too like capsicum finely chopped , add at the time when you fry the chicken pieces in pan , just about say few seconds left to off the gas . ( In this way the capsicum will be crunchy )

PREPARATION TIME : 10 -15 Minutes.
COOKING TIME : 20 Minutes and extra time .
TOTAL TIME : 30-35 Minutes and extra time .
SERVES : 3-4 Persons .
