Breaded Chicken and Parmesan Goujons.

Chicken nuggets or goujons are always a favourite with the children, the problem is prepacked ones aren't very healthy. So making your own is the best way to create a Healthier variety. They are so simple to do and only take a few minutes to make and cook in less than 15 minutes in the oven.


Serves 4

  • 600g chicken cut into 1cm thick strips
  • 1 whole egg
  • 4 slices of white or brown bread, Slightly stale would be ideal.
  • 50g plain flour
  • 100g parmesan
  • salt and pepper to taste.


  • Preheat oven to 140*c and then process the bread in a food processor/ robo chef. Bake in the oven until dried out. Process again so breadcrumbs are fine.
  • Mix the egg with about the same amount of cold water so it doubles in volume.
  • Mix the parmesan in with the breadcrumbs and add the seasoning aswell.
  • Place flour in bowl and put chicken in with the flour ensuring the chicken is thoroughly coated
  • then dip the chicken in breadcrumb mix, back into the egg then coat with breadcrumbs again. Set aside and repeat with the rest of the chicken. If the egg mixture becomes thick and unusable discard and get fresh.
  • Now you can either deep fry for around 6-8 minutes and golden or bake in the oven at 190*c for 16-18 mins. The latter being the healthier option.

Why not try other variations such as substituting the parmesan for cajun spices or garlic and parsley. There are so many different varieties you can do!!
