Ingredients
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbp Italian dried herbs
  • cooking oil spray for coating the chicken pieces
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C (390 Fahrenheit).

  2. Dice the chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks.
  3. In a larger bowl, mix together flour, paprika, parmesan, herbs and garlic granules.

  4. In a separate bowl, beat the egg well.

  5. Have a third bowl ready with breadcrumbs.

  6. Dip the chicken chunks in flour, then egg and then coat them well in the breadcrumbs mixture.
  7. Spray a baking tray lined with non-stick paper, arrange the chicken nuggets, spray them too, 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.

  8. Serve them with any sauce of your choice, my favourite is still the good old ketchup.
