Serves: 4 

  • 500g skinless chicken breast fillets
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 175g fine white breadcrumbs

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 240°C (220°C fan oven), gas 9. Line one or two large baking sheets with baking parchment. Cut 500g skinless chicken breast fillets lengthways into thin strips. In a bowl, beat 1 egg with 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp milk and seasoning. Add the chicken strips and mix well. Spread 175g fine white breadcrumbs on a large plate or tray. Roll the chicken strips in the crumbs, coating them evenly, then place them on the parchment-covered baking sheet. Sprinkle any remaining crumbs over and bake for 15 minutes or until crisp and golden. Serve with lemon wedges. Alternatively, heat oil for deep-frying to 190°C (a small cube of bread should brown in 20 seconds) and fry the chicken strips in batches, allowing 3-4 minutes or until they are crisp and golden. Serve with new potatoes and a salad.

…speed it up

For super-fast goujons, roll the chicken strips in well-seasoned flour and bake without additional coating for 5-8 minutes.

Made these with gluten free bread crumbs, much nicer and cheaper than any gluten free alternative! Next time will consider adding something else with the breadcrumbs for a little more flavour. - 24 Sep 2011


Altered ingredient amounts. Made a quick salsa dip well before (even the night before) so it wouldn't be too much at the one time! - 25 Mar 2010


Definitely a hit in my house. I added herbs and lots of seasoning to the breadcrumbs and used wholemeal bread. Still yummy - will never buy supermarket goujons again! - 17 Jan 2012
