Priscilla's Chicken '65

READY IN: 8hrs 30mins
Recipe by Ranikabani

During my latest visit to India, my cousin Elmer's wife, Priscilla , made this delicious dish spicy chicken dish which she served as an appetizer. I asked my cousins why it was called "Chicken '65", and they said, "It's so delicious, you could eat it 365 days a year!" Well, I don't know if this is the real source of the name of this dish or not, but I wouldn't doubt it! It really is delicious! The prep time includes the marinade time. You can put a toothpick in each piece and serve as an appetizer or leave it in a casserole dish and serve as a main dish.

Haven't tried this yet as I just found it, but thought I would add another name story - I just returned from India & a friend there told us that it's called this because the original version has 65 spices... :)
