Ingredients

  • 4 Chicken Breasts cut into bite size chunks
  • 125 g Cornflakes crushed
  • 25 g Parmesan grated
  • ½ teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 2 Eggs beaten
  • 3 tablespoon Plain Flour

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200°c (180 fan/ 350F/ Gas 4) and line two baking trays with baking paper.
  • Mix the crushed cornflakes with the Parmesan, dried thyme, smoked paprika and a little salt and pepper, in a shallow bowl.
  • Coat each piece of chicken first in the flour, then egg, before finally rolling in the crushed cornflake mix.
  • Place each piece of crumbed chicken onto the baking sheet. When all the chicken has been coated, bake in the oven for 20 minutes until crispy and golden. Turn each piece of chicken after 10 minutes, to ensure all bits of the crumb are crispy.

Notes

Variations: I sometimes use different seasonings to flavour the cornflake crumb. My personal preference is a mixture of dried thyme, Parmesan and smoked paprika, but cayenne pepper and chilli flakes would be good if you like things spicy.
Freezing: The unbaked nuggets can be frozen for up to 3 months. Defrost fully before oven cooking.
