Spicy Chicken Chop With Mashed Potatoes

Not always, once in a blue moon, a different kind of meal or Western meal makes an appearance on our dining table (Lemongrass Chicken Kebab, Jacket Potato Chicken Mince & Baked Cheesy Potatoes). Generally too when I dine all by me, myself and I. So, the pleasure is all mine after making and tucking into the dish perhaps also with a glass of wine when I am in the mood. Of course a bread meal or vegetarian burger meal is also loved by my other half-half (Malaysian Egg Benedict, Malaysian Style Panini & Mint Mushroom Burger), but a chicken meal is only for me (Curry Chicken Noodles, Cashew Nut Masala Chicken, Chicken Vegetable Soup, Chilli Chicken Raisins, Braised Chicken Feet Mushroom & Malaysian Spicy Fried Chicken Wings). 

So, I made this spicy chicken chop and for 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 its twist for spiciness won my heart. The recipe was modified because I didn't want to buy more ingredients to clog up my pantry, alternatively I made do with what was available at home. Spicy Chicken Chop With Mashed Potatoes I bet will not let you down. Take care everyone. I'll catch up with you soon.    

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 (or as needed)
1 tbsp tomato sauce
1 1/2 tbsp yogurt (lightly whisk to remove lumps)

For the mashed potatoes
2 medium size potatoes - simmer 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 :)
