How good does this look? Really guys! I came up with this cool recipe which is 100% low carb because of my lifestyle, it always feels like I’m eating the same thing every week so I decided to spice things up a bit by making my own version of chicken fries minus all the carbs! I must say I was quite impressed with myself and had to hold myself back from munching between photos.

Here is what you’ll need:

500g chicken breast fillets cut into decent sized strips

1 cup gouda or cheddar cheese

1.5 teapsoons salt

1.5 teaspoon Robertsons paprika

1 teaspoon chilli powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon chilli flakes

1 teaspoon robertsons ground black pepper

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 large jalapenos

3 tablespoons green onion or chives

6 rashers of bacon fried till crispy


Heat oven to 190°c. Combine all the spices into a bowl, sprinkle and rub mixture over the chicken pieces. Drizzle the oil on top of the seasoned chicken and rub pieces together to evenly distribute oil. Place chicken on a baking tray – Do not stack chicken on top of one another and leave space between each piece. Bake for 4 minutes and then turn chicken and bake for a further 4 minutes. Transfer chicken to a cast iron pan or a casserole and sprinkle with cheese, bacon and jalapeno and bake at 230°c for 3-4 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Remove from oven, sprinkle with chives and serve immediately with sour cream or on it’s own.
