Feeding your toddlers can often turn a pleasant job into a nightmare, "I just want those chicken nuggets from McDonald's Mum!" they yell. So one night we made our own homemade chicken nuggests, and they were a hit!
- 2 chicken breast fillets
- ½ cup Bread crumbs
- ½ cup Flour
- 1 Egg
- Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius.
Cut breast fillets into bite sized chunks.
Whisk the egg in bowl and add a little water, whisk again until fluffy.
Pour flour and breadcrumbs into a separate bowls. Make your own homemade breadcrumbs for that added twist, its worth it.
Dip the chicken chunks one at a time into the flour, then into the whisked egg and lastly into the breadcrumbs. Place onto an oiled baking tray. Repeat this process until all the chicken is coated and place on the baking tray.
Sprinkle with a little olive oil and place in the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Place the chicken nuggets on a little plate served with tomato sauce for dipping.
