Saucy Chicken 65

Saucy Chicken 65

Chicken 65 is one of my favorite chicken dishes! However, the way it is prepared dry, saucy with gravy it has a blasting flavor isn’t it? There are tons n tons of recipes for this single dish like everyone has their own version of preparing 65. It’s tangy, little sweet-spicy….. I think that the marriage of flavors makes it a crowd-pleaser.

I already have a chicken65 dry recipe on the blog which is tried by many and got lovely feedback! Whenever i have to make a fry for a party, I use to make that chicken65 and all my guest asks for the recipe, hehe! That was my mom’s recipe and it’s always a hit! Now talking about this recipe it is my aunt’s recipe my favorite Khairu Uppitha’s ❀😘! When I have it from her place oh my god it has a slightly tangy, sweet flavor that makes me woow! Thankyou safrithatha for passing this recipe of your mom to me😘 Her’s was with some gravy,πŸ˜’πŸ˜ but i didn’t get that much gravy here, but the flavor was too good that my family and guests loved it.

I hope you all will love it too! Soon i will share another recipe of the same with some more gravy which my friend shared with me! Till then enjoy this one!
