Chicken 65

Chicken 65

Chicken 65 is a spicy, deep-fried chicken dish originating from Chennai, India, as an entree, or quick snack. The flavor of the dish can be attributed to red chillies but the exact set of ingredients for the recipe can vary. It can be prepared using boneless or bone-in chicken and is usually served with onion and lemon garnish. This spicy, tasty south Indian dish has also paved its way for the origin of 'Chicken-65 Biriyani' in Chennai. While the name "Chicken 65" is universally used to refer to the dish, there are many different theories claiming its origins.
