“After watching a programme on the making of chicken products, I swore never to buy processed chicken again. A problem when my kids love nuggets. I searched for a recipe and found this one in Simply Delicious. My kids love it, and their friends request it whenever they come here. Tasty, simple and easy, I can't help but wonder why I ever bothered buying it ready made before. I've made this with and without mint. Add another 30 mins chilling time to the timing.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut chicken breasts into 4 cm (2in) cubes.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together breadcrumbs, sesame seeds, mint, paprika, salt and pepper until thoroughly combined.
  3. Coat chicken nuggets first in beaten egg and then in breadcrumb mixture. Put on a baking sheet and chill for 30 minutes Heat oil in a frying pan and fry nuggets for 10 mins, turning occasionally until golden and crispy.
  4. Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper before serving.
  5. Recipe suggests serving with tartar sauce. My kids grabbed a bottle of Heinz tomato sauce.
  6. Tip: chilling the chicken once it is coated in breadcrumbs makes the mixture less likely to fall off during frying. (So says the recipe!).
