Chicken Fries with Tatziki Dip

This was a fun dinner I made a few months ago, I was working on a bunch of "fries" posts that went nowhere. This was one of my favorites. (The carrot fries were awesome, but the photos and notes are missing, feared never to be seen again.)

I cut a chicken breast into strips, then tossed them with some greek seasoning. I made a tatziki dip with yogurt, shredded cucumber, diced tomato, lemon juice and more greek spice. Then I dunked the chicken into a tempura batter and cooked them in a couple of inches of oil.

Tempura batter
1 cup flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup cold water

Whisk all ingredients together. Let stand 30 minutes before using.
