Baked Honey Mustard Chicken Recipe

Honey mustard chicken can be served as a starter or as a side dish for pasta or fried rice. This recipe is my own creation after many attempts I got it to the consistency we liked at home or I can say as per Indian taste palette. We can cook the chicken on a tawa/skillet or bake it. If cooked using a tawa the chicken tastes different from the baked version.

Take the fish one by one and roll in semolina.
Drop the fish in hot oil and start shallow frying until both sides turn crispy and the fish is cooked. please cook the fish on low to medium flame it would take 10 minutes to fry each batch.
