Chicken is a staple meat in most South African homes, what was once the most affordable option when it came to a meat dish at home ... is not so much anymore.

I am still a fan however and love how versatile chicken is , you can add flavours , spice it up or just enjoy a good old 'chicken mayo' every now and then.
For me it is most important that I choose free range chicken and where possible organic grain fed chicken. Hormones in food can wreak havoc with our own hormones and heaven alone knows that no woman on this green earth needs any extra hormones!

Keep it to clean eating where possible.

Here is an all time , crispy, crunchy and tender chicken dish all at once ... try it and you'll see what I mean ... it's easy peasy!

I usually serve this up with a salsa made from tomatoes, white onion and basil .... nom nom nom!
Preparing & Cooking time - 30 minutes
Serves: 4

6 chicken breasts cut into strips
100 gr finely grated Parmesan (dried not fresh)
1 pinch paprika
1 pinch nutmeg
1 pinch garlic salt

- preheat the oven to 180'c
- in a glass bowl mix the spices and Parmesan together and set aside to use as a coating
- take the chicken strips roll them in the Parmesan , place them on a grill for in the oven (do not place on a baking tray unless you have covered it with a baking sheet)
- repeat this process until you have coated all the chicken strips
- place in the oven for 15 minutes at 180'c or until you can see the chicken has turned white and is cooked.
- always test one strip to ensure it has cooked through
- DO NOT OVERCOOK  remove as soon as they have cooked through.

Serve with your choice of sides and a lovely smokey barbecue sauce

Cooks notes -
** for a crunchy alternative you can replace the Parmesan with walnut crumbs and serve with a blue cheese dipping sauce

This is a favourite of the kids too and great way to get them to eat their food.
