Spicy Chicken Chop With Mashed Potatoes

Not always a Western meal in my house but I suppose every now and then it will be a good chance instead of day in day out eating rice with sides or noodles (simple Asian style rice dish). Chicken dish (butter chicken/murgh makhani) is also a taboo for my half-half, so while he was away, I made this spicy chicken chop and for the wholesomeness, paired it with mashed potatoes. A basic simple chicken chop initially I thought of, then out came this recipe by Amy Beh, sort of similar to a Western style and the twist for the spiciness won my heart. The recipe was modified because I didn't want to buy more ingredients to clog up my pantry, so making do with what was available at home indeed the best policy.  

For the chicken chop
2 medium size chicken fillets - flattened to even out the thickness
oil for frying

Seasoning (a)
1 egg
1 tbsp corn flour
2 tbsp plain flour
Pepper and salt for taste
** Marinate chicken with these ingredients for at least 2 hours.

For the spicy sauce
2 tbsp butter
5 tbsp Thai chili sauce
1 tbsp tomato sauce
1 1/2 tbsp yogurt (lightly whisk to remove lumps)

For the mashed potatoes
2 medium size potatoes - boiled till tender and mashed
1 tbsp butter
Pepper and salt to taste
Spring onion as needed - chopped
*** Mix and combine these ingredients together.

Deep fry chicken pieces in hot oil.
Remove and place on a serving plate.
Melt butter and add all the ingredients for the sauce.
Stir for a while and pour the sauce over fried chicken pieces.
Serve with mashed potatoes.

  1. I like the spicy thai sauce with chicken chops and the way you served it with mashed potatoes and green onion ribbons.

  2. Chicken chop is one of my Favorite.. GOOD..

  3. Nava, you've got some restaurant-styled food going on here. Awesome!

  4. Brilliant colour...I'll like to do the same but include some potato skin in my mash as well. Perhaps I will grill my chicken. I am quite hopeless at frying:(

  5. This looks SO good. I'm very hungry right now!

  6. Interesting combination. I don't think I have ever tried eating curry and mashed potato in a meal. Am thinking of drizzling the curry sauce over the mashed potato

  7. A simple but effectively flavoured chicken my friend, nice one :)
