Quick and easy homemade chicken nuggets...


My mum first found this recipe in her Waitrose magazine and it has been a staple recipe for me ever since. Trashy food is always tempting but homemade chicken nuggets are a lot better for you than shop bought ones, especially if you use turkey like I did!


I usually use the ends of a loaf of bread as I never use them and I hate food going to waste. This bread is from the Hovis granary loaf which I like as it a lot better for you and gives the nuggets a slightly richer taste.


After crumbling the bread down to breadcrumbs, I added some paprika and cayenne pepper to add a bit more flavour but you can add whichever spices you like...


Dip the chicken/turkey pieces into egg and then into the breadcrumbs until they are covered and look something like this! Place the nuggets onto a tray and cook in a pre-heated oven at approx. 180°C and cook until golden brown and crispy.


Serve with a fresh green salad, coleslaw and fries for an indulgent and easy to prepare dinner!

These look so good, Maria! And I don't even eat meat. I wonder if I can invent a tofu/faux meat version...
