Thank you for the recipe. I tried baking the chicken. It's a quick and healthier method however, because the color of the coat doesn't change, the cooked dish doesn't look appealing. I thought I should try frying it hence forth. I have a doubt with that method. Will it be necessary to cook the chicken partly initially and then coat and cook it again? As most of the times the color of the coat changes to golden brown but the chicken remains uncooked. Hope you could help.

Hi Carol,
Try shallow frying next time. You do not have to pre-cook the chicken. Fry on medium flame so that the chicken cooks through. Have a great day.
