Skinny Bacon & Cheddar Irish Soda Bread — The Skinny Fork by Gordon Ramsay



Not only is it easy to make, and requires just a few staple pantry ingredients, but soda bread is pretty versatile too. This bacon and cheese one is great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. So far I made a little breakfast soda bread sandwich with it. But, I’m also planning on pairing it with a stew in the coming days.

Soda bread is a dense bread. So it’s perfect for soaking up soups and stews. Otherwise, this would make for a nice brunch if paired with a bacon or tomato jam!

A soft yeast spelt bread wrapped around a poppy seed filling sweetened with dates and coconut syrup. This is the type of bread we enjoy for breakfast, especially on holidays and weekends. If you can’t find ground poppy at your local stores, just grind the poppy seeds in a coffee or spice grinder until powdery.

Dough Poppy Date Filling
  • 380 g Spelt flour
  • 15 g Fresh yeast
  • 125 ml Buttermilk, room-temperature
  • 40 g Coconut sugar
  • 75 g Butter, softened in pieces
  • 1 Egg, medium
  • Salt
  • 80 g Dates, chopped
  • 3 tbsp Rum / or apple juice
  • 200 g Coconut cream
  • 75 g Coconut syrup or honey
  • 200 g Poppy seeds, ground
  • 1 tsp Organic lemon zest
  • 1 Egg, medium
  1. For the dough, place spelt flour in the bowl of your mixer. Make a well in the center and crumble in fresh yeast. Add in 3 tbsps of buttermilk, 1 tsp of coconut sugar and stir in some flour from the sides. Cover and set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Now add in the rest of buttermilk, coconut sugar, softened butter, egg and a large pinch of salt. Stir first on slow speed for a couple of minutes until the dough roughly comes together. Increase the speed and knead until the dough forms a smooth, tacky ball that clears sides of bowl.
    Cover the dough with a plastic wrap or a damp tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for 45-60 minutes until doubled in volume.
  3. While the dough proofs, prepare the filling. Soften the chopped dates in rum or apple juice. In a small saucepan, add in coconut cream and coconut syrup. Bring to a simmer. Add in ground poppy seeds. Cook and stir over the medium heat until thickened. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature. Add in lemon zest, egg and soaked dates.
  4. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Grease and line the base and sides of a 32cm loaf pan with baking paper.
  5. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and punch down. Roll the dough into a 35cm x 45cm rectangle. Spread the poppy date filling over. Roll up each loosely from the long end to form a log. Use a sharp knife to cut the log lengthwise in half and weave the two pieces together to form a twist.
  6. Gently transfer to the prepared pan

    . Cover with a clean tea towel and stand in a warm place for a further 10 minutes until slightly risen. Brush the top with the egg glaze, then bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden and cooked through. Cool slightly in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack.

Baked Parmesan Crusted Chicken Breasts by Gordon Ramsay


One of the best chicken breast recipes you will ever make. Just follow the easy step by step photo instructions. You can never have too many great chicken recipes.
Baked Parmesan Crusted Skinless Boneless Chicken Breasts on a fork


Editor’s Note: Originally Published January 26, 2013. Updated with expanded discussion and updated photos.

I based this off an allrecipe.com recipe. I added some panko bread crumbs and garlic since all chicken must have garlic at our house. With the Parmesan combined with paprika and garlic, you get a tasty main dish.

My Rating
My rating system. Great 5 out of 5


A solid 5. One of my best chicken recipes. Also, makes a great leftover.

Pro Tips: Baked Parmesan Crusted Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast

Chicken Breast

Chicken breasts were 6-8 oz. years ago are now mostly about 10-12 oz or more.

Try to use chicken breasts that are all about the same size. The results overall will be better since they will cook more evenly.

Cooking Method

Always place the thicker part of the breast towards the outside of the tray when baking chicken breasts.

I suggest cooking chicken on a rack if you have one. You will get air flow under the chicken and better crispier results.

You really need to get a rack if you don’t have one. Be sure to get one that is “oven safe.” Some racks are cooling racks only and have a coating.

If your local store does not have them, Amazon will. I list a few in Cooking for Two Shop, but others will work.

The Coating

This recipe requires grated Parmesan cheese. I much prefer fresh grate for much better taste.

If you let the chicken sit for 5 to 10 minutes after coating before cooking, the coating will stick better.

I like to add a bit more coating to the top before going in the oven to thicken the crust. Also, a light spray of PAM (oil) will prevent that dried bread crumb thing that can happen in the oven.

Final Note: There is enough coating for four breasts, but I only had three, so the pictures are of three large breasts, but the recipe will say four so you can scale it correctly.

ingredients for Parmesan crusted chicken

Grate 1/2 cup of fresh Parmesan. Fresh is better but use pre-grated if necessary.

spraying PAM on a rack on a baking pan

Prep a baking pan. Aluminum foil for easy cleanup, a rack to help crisp all sides and a good spray of PAM. If you don’t have the rack, just spray or oil the foil.

Set up a dredge line with one egg whipped in pan one. In pan two, add 1/4 cup AP flour, 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 2 teaspoon paprika and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt, pepper and garlic powder. Dip the chicken breast in the egg, coat well and shank off excess.

Add a little extra topping to each breast. Give them a light spray of PAM. Bake until internal temp of 165. About 35 minutes.

Recipe Notes

Pro Tips:

  1. The quality of the cheese very important for a great result.
  2. Use chicken breasts of about the same size.
  3. Always place the thicker part of the breast towards the outside of the tray when baking chicken breasts.
  4. An easy recipe to scale up or down.
  5. The rack helps with the underside crisping. If you don’t have one, you can flip the chicken halfway through using a fork. You might want to flip anyway to be sure the bottom is crispy.
  6. If you let the chicken sit for 5-10 minutes after coating, before baking, the coating will stick better.
