Chicken Skin & Bacon Chips

Do you miss potato chips and all the other crispy, delicious, carb-filled things? I do. I don't actually miss those things, but sometimes I would kill for crunchy food. Crispy, crunchy deliciousness to eat with sour cream dip, guacamole, or chicken liver pâté.

Pork crackling is an appropriately crunchy snack, but it's not everyone's cup of tea, and not always easy to source or make. Bacon is usually a staple in keto houses and chicken skins are relatively easy to get hold of. Each time I make chicken soup, I remove the skins before using the chicken. They can both be turned into crunchy bite sized chips. 

You will need:

  • bacon, the fattier the better
  • chicken skin
  • 2 baking trays, preferably one large one and one smaller one
  • baking paper
  • a heavy oven safe pot
  • kitchen scissors
  • salt, pepper & any other spice of choice

Butter Roast Chicken

This is one of my favourite (and easiest) ways to do chicken for dinner. I came up with this while I was on holiday visiting family, I needed something that wouldn’t take too long to cook and would feed keto and non-keto people. Roast chicken is a staple in my house - it's a very flexible dish. I use this a lot with just Waide and I eating at home, but it's also really simple to upgrade for a dinner with friends/family.

Thai-Style Chicken Soup

I am obsessed with Thai flavours at the moment and this soup ticks all the right Thai food boxes. I got dried lemongrass leaves from my mom so I have been adding it to all my food lately. This soup is a variation of my traditional chicken soup, so, if you don't like Thai food, you can easily substitute the flavours with others flavours like more traditional herbs, basil, rosemary etc.


  • 6 chicken pieces (thighs/breasts) - remove the skin and set aside for other recipes
  • chicken stock (1 bullion cube and boiling water is fine, but I often use frozen stock from other meals)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • thyme
  • chilli flakes
  • lemongrass
  • 3 slices of fresh ginger (or 1 tsp. of ginger powder)
  • mushrooms (I used a mixture of white button mushrooms and shimeji)
  • bok choy
  • 2 eggs
  • cilantro (optional)
  • Thai spices (I use a premix called Thai 7 spice - sugar/starch filler free)
  • salt & pepper
