Here is a much loved recipe from "The Cooking of Greece"
Although the recipe calls for bone-in cut chicken, I have never made it this way. To facilitate quick cooking, I use boneless strips of chicken and have substituted Grouse and pheasant on occasion.
My kids used to like to dip the cooked strips in Hummus.

Fried Chicken in Sesame Batter
Serves 4
8 Chicken Pieces-legs, breast and thighs
Juice of 2 lemons
1 tsp Dried Oregano
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 egg lightly beaten
1/2 c flour
1 tsp Almond essence
freshly ground Black pepper
1/4 tsp baking powder
150g-4 1/2 oz sesame seeds
oil for frying
sprigs parsley for frying

1.Sprinkle chicken pieces with lemon juice, oregano, salt, pepper and set aside for 1 hour
2.To make the batter, combine egg, flour, almond essence, salt, pepper and baking powder. Mix to smooth batter.
3. Dip the chicken pieces in the batter, sprinkle with sesame seeds and some flour.
4. Heat the oil in a frying pan or deep fryer and cook the pieces until golden brown about 5 minutes.
5. Drain on paper towels and serve hot, garnished with parsley.

This looks great, Murray! We made a "Greek" chicken dish earlier this week that was good, but this looks even better!

We'll see if we can get this into the rotation sometime and give this a try ~
