Chicken Recipes for Dinner:

Chicken Chops is a delicious side dish goes well with chapati and rice varieties. It tastes spicy and garlicky, but at the same time, it is not loaded with strong spices like garam masala, coriander powder, and cumin.

I like spicy chicken recipes, so most of the time I end up in making regular pepper chicken, chicken masala, and chicken curry. Chicken chops taste different compared to the other spicy chicken recipes.

I tasted this chicken chops at my friend’s home and I liked it. And asked her to share this excellent recipe with all of us.

Smart Cooking Tips:

1. Add more garlic compared to other spices and herbs. Garlic gives a nice aroma and flavor to the chicken.

2. Add little amount of water for grinding the coconut and green chilies mixture. Because chicken by itself oozes water when cooking, chicken chops gravy should be in a thick gravy consistency. Also, if you add more water for grinding, the coconut will remain as it is without grinding to a smooth paste.

3. Chicken chops is not a dry chicken recipe; it should be in a gravy consistency. So avoid cooking chicken chops until it becomes completely dry.

4. If you are using frozen shredded coconut make sure to thaw it before grinding to make a smooth paste.

5. You can use any part of the chicken for this recipe except the chicken liver and gizzard.

Cinnamon Benefits:

If you had noticed, I have added cinnamon in this recipe. I like cinnamon because it adds a good aroma and flavor to any food.

But you have to be careful about the quantity, otherwise, it can be overpowering.

Cinnamon also has great health benefits. Check out this infographic about the benefits of cinnamon.
