This is a Brazilian snack commonly served as a starter in the pubs and restaurants. Sliced chicken fingers are sauteed and topped with fried onion and garlic. It is bland in taste. You can serve with a chilli sauce.
Pronounced - Iska de Frango Asebolaado.

Ingredients:
Chicken fillet .... 200 gms
Onion ......... 1 large (1 cup sliced)
Salt .......... to taste
Lemon juice .. 1 tbsp
Crispy fried garlic .. 1 tbsp
Oil ... as needed

Method:
1. Clean the chicken fillet and cut it into strips of the desired size.
2. Marinate with lemon juice and salt. Set aside.
3. Heat the pan and add a spoonful of oil. Fry the sliced onion adding a little salt until it turns translucent. Remove it in a bowl and set aside for garnishing.
4. In the same pan add a spoonful of oil and stir fry the chicken strips until they are done.
5. For serving you can use a hot plate / sizzler plate or any serving platter. Spread the prepared chicken and garnish with the fried onion slices and crispy fried garlic. If you are using a sizzler plate heat it before serving.

Note: Crispy fried garlic is available in the stores in a bottle or small packs. If you don't have it you can just saute the garlic first and add the chicken for frying.
