Healthy baked chicken nuggets with a twist

Homemade chicken nuggets recipe, or the best ever chicken nuggets. Crispy, hot, sinfully tasty. And ready in just 30 minutes.

Chicken nuggets must be the most googled chicken recipe. And l can see why, they are some pretty bite-sized goodies that top the list when it comes to kids’ favourite recipes. Shame that most kids would only have the fast-food version, which l pretty much doubt has any real chicken in it. I mean, l do love a good rant, and l must have moaned many times before about how much l am against these fast-food restaurants. My ears hurt only when l hear words like McDonalds, KFC and the like. Come on, people, you can do better than that. I know that time is ever so precious, but fast food? Really? Rant over. For now.

So, coming back to my healthy nuggets. Why with a twist? Well, they have a secret ingredient to make them extra crispy: weetabix. Yes, that’s right. Crush one weetabix and mix it with the breadcrumbs and all the seasoning, and you’ll get the most amazing chicken nuggets. Not a problem at all if you don’t have weetabix, just breadcrumbs would be fine. Right, let’s start now!

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
  • Dice the chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks.
  • In a larger bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, crushed weetabix, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and parmesan.
  • In a separate bowl, add the flour and have yet another bowl for the egg, which should be lightly beaten.
  • Dip the chicken chunks in flour, then egg and then coat them well in the breadcrumbs mixture.
  • Drizzle 2 tablespoons of oil in a non-stick baking tray, arrange the chicken nuggets, drizzle some more oil on top and bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, turning them once half way through baking to ensure they are nice and crispy on both sides.
  • Serve them with any sauce of your choice, my favourite is still the good old ketchup.

Enjoy!
