      'Chicken 65' is a dish which is originated from a military canteen in Tamil Nadu, India. There were lot of soldiers in the military camp came from different places . So in the canteen there was a language problem for ordering foods. The easiest thing to do for ordering foods is to use the serial number of the dish on the menu .This dish was at the 65th item in the canteen menu and hence it got the name ' Chicken 65'.

      Thank you Victoria Lynn for visting and the comment
