Braided Bread Chicken Arayes

Braided Bread Chicken Arayes

I loveee Arayes, and incorporating Arayes into a snack has been such an amazing idea! I am so glad this idea dawned on me. These braided chicken Arayes is not only oil free, it’s soo easy to prepare if you have basic ingredients in the kitchen along with bread and boneless chicken. 

Raw boneless chicken is minced along with other ingredients and spices and spread onto a bread slice with trimmed edges, after which we give small slits on both sides and braid the bread over the chicken filling. 

The first time I tried this braided chicken Arayes, I was hesitant as I was worried if the chicken would cook well, but to my surprise adding raw chicken just adds to the flavor as the juices from the chicken makes the Arayes even more delicious and the dip is the cherry on the cake. 

Make this snack and enjoy along with the special tahini dip and impress your loved ones!! 😍


  • 10 Bread slices
  • 150 gms Boneless Chicken
  • 1/2 Onion 
  • 1/2 Tomato 
  • Coriander leaves
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic paste
  • 1/2 tsp Black pepper, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp Red Chilli Flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin powder
  • 1 tsp Kashmiri Chilli powder
  • Salt, as required 
  • 1 tsp Tomato paste 
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • Water to flatten the bread 
  • Oil, to spray 


  • 1 tsp Tahini 
  • 1 tbsp Yogurt 
  • 1 tbsp Mayo 
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic paste
  • Salt, a pinch 


  1. Into a mixer grinder, add the chicken, veggies and spices, olive oil and salt and grind to a paste. 

  2. Trim the edges of your bread, dampen the bread slices with water and flatten using a rod, and place the chicken filling of Arayes onto the middle of the bread. 

  3. Next, make 3-4 slits on both sides of the bread and braid the slits, one after the other ( the minced chicken acts as a sticking agent) 
  4. Place the prepared braided Arayes on a baking sheet and spray a bit of oil and air fry on 180 deg for 20 minutes and golden. 

  5. Combine all the ingredients under the dip and serve hot alongside the dip. Enjoy!! 

Ps: You May oil fry the braided Arayes, but I prefer the air fried ones as the have little to no oil.
