    Salaam, this looks delicious! Would love to try it for my little brother who is a chicken lover! How long do I boil the chicken breast for? And I use just one chicken breast?

      Hello Nadia,
      Yes, 1 chicken breast will serve 4 people ( 4-5 pcs. pakora per person) and boil it for 20 – 25 minutes until its tender and fully cooked.
