Honor the Festival of Lights with fantastic fried foods.

Chef, restaurateur and cookbook author Michael Solomonov is stopping by the TODAY kitchen to share a few of his favorite fried foods for Hanukkah, which kicks off Sunday (these recipes work well for game day, too!). He shows us how to make crispy kataifi-crusted chicken cutlets and golden latke fries with horseradish dipping sauce.

Chicken Kataifi Schnitzel with Schug Tehina

Kataifi, made from shredded phyllo dough, provides an excellent crunchy crust for chicken cutlets. It adds so much more crispy goodness to schnitzel. The creamy, nutty, spicy schug tehina adds a hit of heat to the dish, which was adapted from the menu of my new Brooklyn restaurant, K’Far.

Latke Fries

Michael Solomonov

Latke fries bring all the best parts of latkes and french fries into one perfect dish. They're easy to make, fun to eat and the whole family will love them. If the horseradish sour cream is too spicy for the little ones, these also pair perfectly with apple sauce.
