  • 500g Chicken Breast or Thigh
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2/3 cup rice crumbs (I use Orgran in the health food section)
  • 1 tsp each paprika, oregano, salt and garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp white pepper

Cut chicken into strips and coat in olive oil. Combine rice crumbs and spices in a bowl. Coat chicken strips evenly and well in rice crumb mix. Lay on a baking tray lined with non stick paper, and bake at 180 until lightly golden- the oil underneath the crumb will make them crispy. images-11

Serving Suggestions: 10818518_10204297083180269_381541110_n

  • Serve self help bowls with your fav wraps- i like mountain bread cut into quarters
  • Alternatively serve as a salad with the dressings and avocado
  • Add greens such as rocket, shredded cabbage or baby spinach
  • Read the ingredients on the crumbs you choose- many are laced with lots of chemicals! The brand I use is 100% brown rice, and you can find it in the health food section of the supermarket.
  • Chipotle is available in speciality delis- stock up they are well worth it!!
