  • 400g chicken breast fillet ,cut into 10cm chunks
  • 40g flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3 slices wholemeal bread, (to make fresh breadcrumbs)

Method

  • Step 1

    First, make the breadcrumbs. If you have a hand-held blender that has a mini-blender attachment, this is the easiest way to whizz up the breadcrumbs, otherwise do it in a food processor.

  • Step 2

    Organise a ‘production line’ of bowls – the flour in one, then the beaten egg, then the breadcrumbs, all ready for dipping the chicken pieces.

  • Step 3

    Dip each chunk into the flour, then into beaten egg, then coat in breadcrumbs.

  • Step 4

    Fry the pieces for 2 minutes on each side, then transfer to the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Sit on a piece of kitchen roll for a few moments to get rid of some of the oil, then serve.

  • Make lots of fresh breadcrumbs all at once, then freeze 100g at a time in freezer bags to use for future batches of nuggets.
  • These tasty nuggets can be given whole as a finger food, or chopped into smaller pieces for younger babies.
