Crisp Spiced Chicken

  • FAST
  1. 2 plum tomatoes, diced
  2. 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (3 ounces)
  3. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
  5. 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  6. 1/2 cup tahini paste
  7. 1/2 cup water
  8. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  9. 1 garlic clove, smashed
  10. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  11. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, for dusting
  12. 2 large eggs, beaten
  13. One 6-ounce package falafel mix
  14. 2 pounds thin chicken cutlets
  15. Vegetable oil, for frying
  1. Preheat the oven to 225°. In a medium bowl, toss the tomatoes with the feta, olive oil, jalapeño and parsley. In a mini food processor, puree the tahini with the water, lemon juice and garlic until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the sauce to a small bowl.
  2. Put the flour, beaten eggs and falafel mix in 3 shallow bowls. Season the chicken with salt and pepper; dust with flour. Dip the chicken in the egg, then coat in the falafel mix.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1/4 inch of oil until shimmering. Working in batches, fry the chicken over moderately high heat, turning once, until crisp, 6 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Transfer to an ovenproof platter; keep warm in the oven. Serve the chicken with the salad and sauce.
