Healthy chicken nuggets

These healthy chicken nuggets will keep everyone in the family happy – the kids will love them and you’ll be content that you know exactly what’s gone into them.


  • 4 slices day-old bread
  • 2-3 chicken breast fillets (about 600g)
  • 70g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g cornflake crumbs
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese


1. Tear the bread into pieces and whiz in a food processor to get fine breadcrumbs.

2. Slice the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Put the flour on a large square of baking paper.

3. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl. Mix the breadcrumbs, cornflake crumbs and Parmesan cheese in a bowl.

4. Coat the chicken pieces in flour, dust off, dip in the egg wash and then coat in the crumb mix. You may need to press the crumbs on. Place the coated chicken pieces onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

5. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4 and bake the chicken for 10 minutes or until cooked through.
