"Shake and Bake" Chicken Strips with Herb and Garlic Taters

This is my version of the American classic, fried chicken and french fries. It is not only delicious, it takes less than 30 minutes to cook, AND it is a very inexpensive dinner. I haven't calculated, but its probably less than 2 dollars a plate.


6 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
1/2 cup sprouted grain bread crumbs
1 egg, whisked
2 tsp whole wheat flour
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp Bragg Organic Sprinkle
1/4 tsp tumeric
Himalayan salt
black pepper
1 zip-lock  bag
raw honey and mustard (for dipping)

2- 6oz potatoes, washed and scrubbed
1 tbsp grapeseed oil
1 tsp garlic powder, or clove of garlic, minced
1 tsp Bragg Organic Sprinkle
1 zip-lock bag
Himalayan salt (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400 F. Chop the potatoes in half, vertically. Slice each half into three pieces, making sure to cut on a diagonal (So that the fries cook evenly in the oven, and don't fall over). Pat the potatoes dry, and place in your zip-lock bag. Add the herbs, spices, and oil. Tightly zip the bag shut, and shake, shake, shake! Remove from the bag and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until edges start to get brown and crispy.

Meanwhile, start your chicken strips. Add all of the dry ingredients into your zip-lock bag, and mix around. Next, place the flour in one bowl and the egg in another. Dip each chicken strip into the flour first, then the egg, then the bag of bread crumbs. Shake well, to cover the chicken, and place in a baking dish, or on another cookie sheet. Add the chicken to the oven, when the fries have 5 minutes left. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until crispy.

Plate, and serve paired with a large garden salad.

  1. looks very yummy. i will have to look for this braggs spice you talk about.

    1. To tell you the truth, it came with the house I last lived in, lol. The guy before us left a bunch of spices. I didn't start using it till I moved, and it's almost all gone! I saw some at the health food store here though (thank goodness), I think it's about 7 or 8 dollars
