Onion rings and Chicken Fingers

Ok, so we had a very unhealthy, fried feast last night! But, I just had to try the batter recipe with onions! And had a thought of cutting chicken breast into thin strips also, and just frying everything up! SOOOOOOO, we did it and -- OMG, yummmm what a treat!!

Ok, so I basically used the batter recipe from my sweet n sour chicken post.. But, I changed it up a little as I went.. and I doubled it, and also had to add about 1/2 cup more flour and about 1 Tsp of baking powder and maybe 1/4 more corn starch.. So, the totals are here:

Frying Batter:
2 cup cup water
1-1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup corn starch
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
salt, pepper and season salt. *(you can add any seasonings you like)

Next, slice a sweet yellow onion, and 4 chicken breasts into thin strips. Coat the chicken and the rings with flour. Salt and pepper them before adding to batter. Dip in batter and fry. Careful not to crowd the pan.. Salt immediately after removing from oil. I did all the chicken first, then all the onions based on different cooking times...
