Spicy Chicken Cutlet

There are many many appetizers you could make either for a party or just your family. But there are only a few that can win over hearts (and tummies) like a chicken cutlet. That too with little effort on your part. Chicken cutlets are best served with some kind of sauce like Ketchup or chutney sauce – the kind you would serve with samosas. They make for a great party appetizer especially if you have non-veg lovers. Can you bake it too or just shallow fry?
