  • Let us start making chicken 65 - Wash and cut the chicken into very fine pieces (preferebly). Soak these chicken pieces in salt water for 15 minutes (this makes the chicken moist and juicy). Meanwhile, prepare the marinade.

Again mix well with a dash of water. Finally, add the beaten egg and give a fine mix. Marinade must be very thick. So do not add more water.
  • Add the chicken (drain the water completely) and mix well with hand. Keep refrigerated for 30 minutes.
