Guilt Free Crispy Southern Fried Chicken Strips...

I have been craving Southern Fried Chicken lately but one that is made from real chicken, unlike some store bought, and one that is not so calorific, like from Fast Food outlets!! 
And I think I may have just accomplished that, thanks to Rice Krispies and Fat Free Creme Fraiche. 


1 large chicken breast, sliced
25g of Rice Crispies
1 tbsp Fat Free Creme Fraiche
a little water
1/2 tsp salt, pepper, paprika, dried oregano, garlic powder


1. Put your Creme fraiche into a bowl add your spices, a little water and mix well. This is what you will use as your 'sticking' agent as well as a way to keep your chicken moist and full of flavour.
2. Put your Rice Krispies into another bowl, crushing them slightly so they resemble bread crumbs.
3. Dip each piece of sliced chicken into the creme fraiche mixture and then into the Rice Krispies. Then place them onto a baking tray with a little Fry Light.
4. Bake in a very hot oven for about 20min or until the chicken is cooked and the outside is crispy.

Serve with a delicious salad or oven baked chips if you are in that kind of mood.

For Slimming World lovelies here is the syn count,

Shop bought Southern Fried Chicken (breaded) - 8 syns
1 piece of chicken from  KFC or similer - 10 1/2 syns
My recipe - 6.5 syns it could be less as you not using 25g of creme fraiche

Not a huge saving but its a saving and every syn counts. The Rice Krispies count 5 syns per 25g but I find for that real crispiness without oil/frying they work best. You could also use egg instead of creme fraiche but you wouldn't get all the flavour.
