Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Mix together equal measures of smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and garlic powder with a sprinkling of ground black pepper to make a perfect low salt Cajun spice mix.  If you wish, make up a large batch and keep it in a sealed jar for future use as well. 
  3. Pop the washed Apache potatoes on a baking tray and bake for 50 mins until cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, cut the chicken breast into strips, place in a small non-stick frying pan along with a fine spray of oil and a sprinkle of the Cajun spice mix.
  5. Fry the chicken off until thoroughly cooked through and lovely and crispy.
  6. Serve on top of the baked Apache Potatoes with a dollop of crème fraîche and a large, colourful salad on the side.
