Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 210°C Place the mixed herbs, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper in a large bowl and mix until combined, then set aside. Place the flour in another bowl and the eggs in a third bowl. Toss the chicken cubes in the flour, dusting off any excess. Working in batches, dip the chicken pieces into the egg, then the breadcrumbs, pressing to coat well.
  2. Once all the chicken is crumbed, heat a little oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Cook the chicken in batches until golden. Remove and transfer to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Place in oven for 4-5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve chicken with lemon wedges and a little whole egg mayonnaise for dipping, if desired.

O'kay I was originally only going to give this 4 stars after making but it got such rave reviews from some very picky diners it had to be 5 stars. My problems I had already increased the fresh bread crumbs (wholemeal/wholegrain bread) as I was making for 6 and my 3 breasts had a weight of 1 kilo (2.2 lbs) and I got 50 nuggets out of that but it took 28 slices of bread in the food processor to cover them and only just. I served with mashed potato and steamed veg and enough nuggets left over to feed another 2 people easily (should be great in sandwiches). But to be honest I would like to try this recipe again but try the easy path and use panko crumbs flavoured with the dry herbs which I think would be a little less time consuming.

This was just excellent. Loved the fresh whole wheat breadcrumbs. Came out so crisp and the chicken was nice and moist. I used Italian seasoning and added about 1/2 tsp each of onion powder and garlic powder. This would be very good on top of a salad. After browning in the skillet I cooked in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes. Perfect. Served with Ranch Dressing and some honey for me. Made for I Recommend Tag Game. :)
