About this recipe: My kids love chicken nuggets and I like to make them from scratch. That way, I know what's in them.


Serves: 4 

  • 500g boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 200g dried breadcrumbs
  • butter, as needed for cooking
  • oil, as needed for cooking

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Cut chicken breast in about 2cm thick stripes and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Place flour on a plate, eggs on a second and breadcrumbs on a third plate.
  3. Heat enough butter and oil to generously cover the bottom of a large frying pan and bring to a medium heat. Dredge chicken strips in flour, shake off excess, dip into the egg and coat with breadcrumbs. Fry in batches for about 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  4. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper to soak up any excess grease. Serve hot.
