Chicken Priyazo

 Chicken Priyazo

How many of y'all remember this nostalgic snack from lulu? Perfect for iftar, simple yet fun to make and the best part, it is oven baked which means no need to stand near the hot oil and stare at it. I am a big fan of Puff pastry since childhood. Whenever I see anything using Puff pastry being served, I had to try it. And most of the time never disappointed. 

And this snack indeed is a childhood favorite snack that I used to love munching when my parents used to take us shopping to Lulu Hypermarket. This is my interpretation of the snack. Do try and let me know how you liked it. 

This is one of my first recipes I shared in the internet, was such a success at home, wanted to share the success with everyone, Alhamdulilah! Then, the recipe of chicken Priyazo was not even there on the internet , now there are variety of recipes of chicken Priyazo :D

The filling is so delicious. You may use it for any snack item as a filling. You may also make the same with Maida/All purpose flour dough and fill them like rolls and dip in the egg mixture and fry them. ­čśő
