To start preparing this delicious recipe, rinse the chicken thoroughly under running water and cut it into equal pieces of 50 grams each.

Now, preheat refined oil in a large deep bottomed frying pan. In the meanwhile, take another bowl and combine beaten egg with chili powder into it. Whisk thoroughly. Further, arrange breadcrumbs in a plate so as to roll the marinated chicken in them.
