Crunchy Homemade Chicken Nuggets


- 2 Tegel skinless breast fillets
- cut in 2cm strips (about 300g)
- 3/4 cup natural low fat yoghurt
- 5 cups cornflakes
- 3 slices wholegrain bread
- 3/4 tsp ground pepper
- 2 Tbsp chopped parsley
- Cooking spray
Serves : Makes about 8
Cooking time:


Marinate the Tegel chicken breast slices in the yogurt for an hour or more.

Place the bread into a processor and pulse to form crumbs. Add the cornflakes and process to a fine crumb consistency. If you don’t have a processor crush the cornflakes with a rolling pin and crumble the bread as best you can.

Place the crumb mixture into a bowl or bag, add the seasoning and coat the marinated chicken pieces either by shaking them in the bag or dunking them in the bowl.

Arrange the coated pieces in a single layer on a baking tray and spray well with cooking spray. Grill under medium grill or oven bake at 200°C until crispy and golden. Gently turn and cook on the other side.


Serve with reduced salt tomato sauce and other finger foods such as carrot sticks, snow peas and cherry tomatoes
