    This easy recipe is not only easy, it tastes amazing! It's also a healthier alternative to fast food chicken nuggets for children (and is, in my opinion, much more crunchy and delicious!). This recipe will keep everyone happy.

    • 3 eggs
    • 750g boneless chicken breast, cut into strips

    1. Spread oil thinly and evenly over a baking tray.
    2. Add salt and pepper to flour and mix in a shallow dish.
    3. Beat eggs in another shallow dish.
    4. In another shallow dish, combine the panko with the oregano, paprika, cayenne, salt and pepper. Make sure to spread the spices out evenly over the breadcrumbs, so that nobody gets a bite that's too spicy!
    5. Now dip the chicken tenders first into the flour, then into the eggs, then into the panko breadcrumbs, making sure to get an evenly distributed coating on each tender at every step. I recommend doing this step in batches, rather than doing each tender one-by-one, because its more efficient and effective.
    6. Spread the panko-covered chicken tenders onto the baking tray that was previously greased. Bake in a medium-high heat oven until golden brown. Around half-way through the cooking process, flip the chicken tenders to the other side.


    A great sauce to go with this is a honey-soya sauce mix. Just mix 2 tablespoons of honey with 4 tablespoons of light soya sauce. You can also experiment with creating your own sauces with barbecue sauce, mustard, or other sauces.
    The seasoning of the panko breadcrumbs can be changed. You can make it less spicy or more spicy according to your own taste. The cayenne pepper can be omitted to avoid spiciness. The paprika adds more of a smokey flavour than a spicy flavour but can be omitted as well.
