Stuffed Chicken French Toast - New twist to an old staple

Let me start by wishing everyone a very happy new year! Here's hoping that we move on with a lot of hope and love in our life. I just got back from a long winter holiday.Meeting family over loads of adda and laughter and now I am suffering from withdrawal syndrome! Getting into the kitchen has been the last thing on my mind but then the urge to try something new also pokes me. Calcutta in winters in not crippling cold and this is actually the best time to experiment. The husband has been wanting to eat something nice so I made something very staple ( his fav ) and gave it a cool twist. Stuffed Chicken French Toast - I made it using chicken from leftover curry!


Chicken pieces- 3-4 medium - boiled and shredded. I used the chicken from leftover curry.

Onion - 1 medium - finely chopped

Green chili - 1-2 nos - finely chopped

Turmeric powder - 1 tsp

Red chilli powder - half tsp

Salt - to taste

Sugar - a pinch

Bread slices - 6 pieces

Eggs - 3 nos - lightly beaten - seasoned with salt and pepper
Refined oil - for frying


In a pan heat 1 tbsp oil. Once the oil heats up add the finely chopped onion and green chilli and saute till translucent. Add the boiled and shredded chicken. Add the turmeric,red chilli powder, salt and sugar and fry well till light brown in colour. Remove from heat and keep aside to be used as filling. 

Take the bread slices , fill in the chicken mixture in between two slices , dip in the beaten egg mixture.

Heat oil in a pan , fry the stuffed bread slices till golden brown on both sides.

Serve with a portion of green salad ( this will reduce the guilt feeling!)
