  1. Don't mix the ketchup, hot sauce or anything with acid into the burger mixture! The meat will become mealy and crumbly due to the acid in the sauces. It denatures the meat or cooks it. Ever see a buffalo chicken burger in the market? That's what I thought....there is a reason. Put the condiments on the burger after it is cooked.
  2. Hubby loved it.....the best chicken dish EVER!!! Not to worry, it is superb, would reccommend to any one who likes things HOT, you can tone it up or down!
  3. This is a very delicious chicken 65! Very good flavor. The red food coloring turned my yogurt sauce pink, though, so I would omit it next time. :) I would make this again, thank you!!
  4. This recipe was very easy to prepare n really turned out good. My son loved it alot. I garnished it with fried chillies n curry leaves in the end which imparted a restaurant-like chkn 65 flavor to the dish.
  5. I had this recipe, though I didnt know where I got it from.Great recipe. Is a regular in our menu.
