Oporto is AUS/NZ based burger and grilled chicken chain and their Bondi burgers are very popular. They make it with their own special hot sauce and chicken fillets. But I am not a big fan of their burgers, I like their Jalapeno bites and Chicken Bondi Bites more. Bondi bites are thin slices of chicken breast, marinated in tangy marinade and lightly crumbed and fried. I have worked out the recipe by eating them, so its based on my taste and tastes same.
Here we go,
- 2 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, cut into thin slanted slices
- Salt to taste
- Some chicken salt
- 1 tspn smoked paprika
- 2 tbspns soy sauce
- 1 tspn lemon & herb seasoning (easily available at grocery stores)
- 6 tbspns lemon juice
- 1 tspn garlic and onion mix powder
- 1 tspn black pepper
- 2 eggs
- 4 tbspns corn flour
- 2 tbspns self rising flour
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tspn paprika
- 1 tspn chicken salt
- 1 tspn lemon and herb seasoning
- Oil for deep frying
- Cut the chicken breasts in thin slanted slices and put them in a zip lock bag and pound it with a meat hammer and put all the pieces in a deep mixing bowl.
- Add all the spices and sauces and mix. Keep aside for 30 minutes at room temperature and crack in 2 eggs, add corn flour and flour and mix well.
- Keep aside for 1 hour in refrigerator.
- Meanwhile, combine all the crumbing in a plate. Take one piece of chicken and coat it in the crumbing, pressing it gently to stick the crumbs. Do the same with the rest of the chicken and arrange them on a plate without over lapping and refrigerate for 2 hours.
- Heat oil to 190 degrees Celsius and fry the chicken. Serve hot with any sauce of your choice. I personally like it with ranch, aoli or dynamite sauce.
