If you haven’t heard of chicken 65 then you are definitely missing out! Personally, I LOVE spices and I love eating spicy food and this is definitely one of them.
If you’re not much of a spice person or can’t handle the heat, then I would recommend toning down the spices a little as it can be a bit intense for some people.
Although it is widely accepted that the dish originated from Hotel Buhari in Chennai, India, there is a dispute as to why this dish is called chicken 65. There are so many reasons out there (some being very bizarre!) and I think the truth just got lost in the myths.
Some people say that it was because the chicken was marinated for 65 days, although I don’t know who would be able to wait that long to taste this delicious dish! Some people say that the original recipe had 65 chillies in it. I do love my spices, but even I can agree that it is a bit of a spice overload!

There are a lot of chicken 65 recipes out there. Some recipes are dry, and some are saucy. My recipe is not too dry and not too saucy. I like to keep it semi-dry, so there is just enough sauce to coat the chicken, but not so much that you feel like can’t hold it.
If you prefer it to be drier you can cook the sauce for longer to allow it to thicken and if you prefer it to have more sauce, simply cook the sauce for less time. However, you choose to enjoy it this chicken 65 recipe is one that everyone will love!
