Chicken Nuggets

Baked for a healthier spin on the classic chicken nugget. These little mouthfuls of proper poultry are a firm family favourite.

Key Details

  • Serves: 30 nuggets
  • Prep time: 3 minutes
  • Cook time: 25 minutes
  • Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients

  • 500g chicken breasts
  • 25g grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 egg
  • 1 tsp paprika (optional)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (optional)
  • generous pinch of salt & black pepper
  • 100g plain flour
  • 150g cup breadcrumbs (panko)

  • 500g chicken breasts
  • 25g grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 egg
  • 1 tsp paprika (optional)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (optional)
  • generous pinch of salt & black pepper
  • 100g plain flour
  • 150g cup breadcrumbs (panko)

Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4.

Dice your chicken into mouth-sized chunks. Whisk up your eggs into one bowl, pop your flour into a second, and in your final bowl pop your breadcrumbs, garlic granules, paprika, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese.

Now follow this simple process with each chicken chunk: dip your chicken into the flour; SHAKE IT OFF; then the egg; SHAKE IT OFF; then roll into your breadcrumb mix. Get each nugget nice and coated place onto a lightly oiled baking tray.

Drizzle a touch more oil over the top for added crunch and into the oven for 20-25 minutes. Turn them over halfway so they are lovely and golden on both sides. Enjoy!
