Chicken cutlet/Tikki with step by step pictures.

Chicken Cutlet is a yummy snack /appetizer that every kid would definitely love it. You can use it as an after-school snack or as patties for a burger. I made this for my kids after school snack and served it with mint chutney and tomato sauce. Both my kids loved it to the core. I used chicken breast pieces to make this cutlet but you also boil the usual pieces, remove flesh from it and make. Let us see how to make this easy cutlet.
