The method of cooking chicken cutlets with ginger and chili
For this dish chicken ham is best suited, so a piece of skin, which we wrapped burgers, turns out more. You can cook the hamburgers from the hips, but then you have to tie them up with a culinary thread from two sides.
We cut the chicken legs - gently remove the skin, trying not to damage its integrity, the skin from the legs is removed as a stocking. We separate the meat from the bones, for small meatballs enough meat from the thighs, the legs can be left and cooked from them something in Indian style.
Chop chicken meat very finely so that the cutlets turn out to be juicy, you do not need to use a meat grinder. In a mortar, rub garlic, salt and chili pepper, add to the stuffing, send the leek sliced into thin rings. Ginger root peel, rub in the meat on a small grater.
Chicken skin is seasoned with ground paprika, salt and curry mixture for meat, carefully rub it with these fragrant spices.
We tie chicken skin with linen rope or culinary thread, fill it with a small portion of minced meat, filling the leg in about half. Wrap a loose piece of skin around the patty, turn the edges inward.
Cut two large onions with thick rings, put them on the bottom of the refractory mold, this method will allow you to get a non-stick roast. Onion put chicken cutlets and potato wedges. I advise you to always boil potatoes in a uniform until half cooked before baking. The point is that the potatoes will absorb less fat, and the crust will turn out golden and crispy. Drizzle the hot oil with olive oil, salt the potatoes.
We put the baking tray with the cutlets in the oven heated to 180 degrees, bake for about 30 minutes, until golden brown.
