Healthy Crumbed Chicken Nuggets

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by ShakenCake

Found this posted on the Australian Vogue forum, it is delicious, healthy, and tasty! Please note that the measurements are approximations because this recipe wasn't provided with any, and I do it by sight. You basically need enough of everything to roll the chicken in. You can use vegetables (like mushrooms) instead of chicken too.

We had a big oops moment when going to make this only to discover someone had finished of the yogurt so I had to use and egg/milk wash but they cooked up beautifully at 175C fan forced in 40 minutes and were lovely and moist, I used 3 small chicken breasts (total weight 450g) and got 34 nuggets and 3 of us gobbled up 28 of them, thank you Shak'n'Cake, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
