Chicken w/Bamba (M, TNT)
Source: An adaptation of an idea from the TV
Serves: 4

4 chicken parts for frying (use your favorite parts such as breast for schnitzels or thighs for fried chicken)
1 egg
1 small (2-1/2 oz.) bag of BAMBA*(see note)
1/2 cup your favorite kind of bread crumbs

With rolling pin, mash Bamba to crumbs. Mix in equal quantities with bread crumbs, and proceed as in making schnitzels or fried chicken.

Poster's Notes: Bamba is the Israeli Cheetos - its a snack, very popular, made from peanuts. Even pediatricians recommend it, because while it is cooked it is swirled in a drum and coated with a layer of vitamins (or so the pediatricians have been told). Unlike other snacks, this can be given to very young kids since it melts in the mouth - no crumbs to suffocate on. For many kids in Israel (my personal daughter included) this is their first spoken word, since it is in syllables easy for a baby to say.

To your point - it is most certainly Hechshered, not only hechshered but BADATZ. I know this from personal experience if I may say so because if you remember
the flour mill that I used to operate, one of our biggest customers was Osem (one of the largest, if not the largest food manufacturers in Israel). They were very particular about the soy flour (that was my part in the Bamba life circle) that it would be BADATZ. In Israel you can find also KLP Bamba (for Sepharadic).

I know for a fact that it can be bought in the US in stores that sell kosher stuff, like in many parts of NY. 

See, you do learn a lot when you run a food factory in Israel...
