Fried chicken and onion rings are not health foods. In fact, they are the polar opposite, but sometimes we need just a few culinary indulgences, especially when life keeps throwing lemons in your face. There are no tasty fried chicken places in Berlin (that I know of), so I had to make it myself.
First, I soaked the chicken in milk (just regular, I did not have buttermilk) seasoned with chili powder, garlic, pepper, salt and oregano.
Then I double battered them in a mixture of cornmeal and bread crumbs seasoned with the same seasonings I used for the soak.
Then I fried those suckers over medium heat until they were golden brown. I usually bake everything, so this was a real treat.
And voila. Fresh and crispy chicken tenders.
And what would chicken tenders be without some onion rings. Still delicious, but I had extra breading, so I decided to go the whole nine yards. Glad I did.
