Chips Chicken

Years ago, Chips Chicken was such a fad, everyone made it together with cute little chips sandwiches and chips rolls.  I think it was popular  because it was a place where mothers and children agreed.

Chips Chicken was the compromise. Mothers who tried to feed their children a healthy diet and children who only wanted to eat junk food. Healthy, definitely not, but delicious none the less and with a cheese sauce to boot,  Chips Chicken is still a firm favorite even after all these years.
Normally I will serve this chicken with only a salad or some steamed vegetables, because there is enough sinfulness in the crust, but I could not resist making a luscious cheese sauce to enjoy with the crispy chicken.
This cheese is almost too tangy and strong for a Gouda, but for me it is all about the flavor and not necessarily about the name. The mature Gouda is perfect on its own, sublime with something sweet like preserved figs or preserved melon, but for an out of this world chees


Chips Chicken with luscious Cheese Sauce 

serves 6


6 chicken fillets with skin ( the skin prevents the chicken from drying in the oven)
1 x 125 g Cheese and Onion Chips
1 egg – beaten with a little milk
125 ml flour
1 t barbecue spice


Place the chips in a plastic bag and with a rolling pin, bash the chips until it becomes course crumbs. Place on a plate. Beat the egg and milk together and place in another bowl and lastly mix the flour and the seasoning and place in a 3rd bowl. Place a chicken breast between 2 layers of plastic and with a meat mallet, lightly beat the chicken to make a “schnitzel”. Repeat with all the chicken breasts. Now one-by-one dip the chicken first into the flour, shake off the excess flour, then into the egg mixture and lastly into the crumbs. Repeat with all the chicken. Place on a baling sheet and allow to set in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 180C. Bake the chicken in the oven for about 20 minutes. Make the cheese sauce while you wait.


Cheese Sauce
makes about 1½ cup

Bring mixture to the boil and allow to boil for a minute or two, make sure the sauce does not burn. Add the cheese and allow the cheese to melt. Season if necessary. Serve on the chips chicken or steamed vegetables if you which.

    Your dish reminds me of summer more exciting scenes. I was very happy to have full friends. I prefer vegetarian dishes, hoping that the next day you will do a post about it. Thank you.
