  • 1 or 2 chicken breasts cut into strips/pieces
  • 2/3 slices of bread
  • 2 eggs
  • flour


Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan and line a baking sheet with foil or baking paper

    Prepare the coating

    • There are three parts to the crumb – flour, egg and breadcrumb. First, make the breadcrumb and put them in a dish ready for dipping. Next, crack the eggs into a dish and mix them with a fork. Finally, spoon some flour into a dish.

    Coat the chicken

    • To make it easier, line the three dishes up in the right order with the prepared baking tray at the end.
    • Take each bit of chicken and dip them first in the flour, then coat them in egg before covering in breadcrumbs.

    Bake the chicken nuggets

    • Bake them in the oven for approx 25 minutes. They’re ready when they’ve crisped up and become a nice golden brown colour.
