1

Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the potato into fries, then place on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and toss to coat. Spread out evenly, then bake until tender, 20-25 minutes.

2

While the fries are baking, roughly chop the cucumber. In a medium bowl, combine the Aussie spice blend and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt, then add the chicken thigh and turn to coat. Set aside.

3

When the fries have 10 minutes cook time remaining, heat a large frying pan drizzle over a medium-high heat with olive oil. Cook the bacon, breaking up with a spoon, until golden, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Return the pan to a medium-high heat with another drizzle of olive oil, if needed. Cook the chicken, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 10-14 minutes.

TIP: The spice blend will char in the pan – this adds to the flavour!

4

In the last 3 minutes of cook time, top the chicken with the bacon and shredded Cheddar cheese. Cover with a lid or foil until the cheese has melted, 2-3 minutes.

5

While the chicken is cooking, combine the slaw mix, cucumber, 1/2 the mayonnaise and a drizzle of olive oil in a large bowl. Toss to coat and season to taste.

6

Divide the cheesy-topped chicken between plates. Serve with the fries and creamy slaw. Serve with the remaining mayo.
