Homemade ‘Healthy’ Crispy Chicken Nuggets and Buffalo Dipping Sauce

Need another way to spice up your boring plain chicken? (Side note: you should never have boring plain chicken anyways, get some herbs and spices into your life!) However, if that is not floating your boat, or you just fancy something different for a change like we did this weekend (or you are craving a certain Maccy Ds) then this is the recipe for you!

In my head this would work, but I even surprised myself at how good it was!

Secret Ingredient = Cornflakes.

It took less than 5 minutes to prepare and about 20 minutes to cook. The same amount of time that it would take you togged ready and drive to the Golden Arches.

Serves 2

200g Chicken Breast
25g Cornflakes
1 egg
Salt and Pepper
BBQ seasoning

30g Gorgonzola
50g Fromage Frais
Lemon Juice
Salt and Pepper

Pre Heat a fan oven to 200 degrees. Put some foil onto a baking tray and spray with frylight.


Slice your chicken up into bite sized pieces.

Crack the egg and whisk in a dish. Bash Up your cornflakes and add to a separate dish with salt and pepper and BBQ seasoning.

Dip the chicken into the egg and then coat with the cornflake crumb before putting onto baking tray.

Pop into the oven for about 16 minutes, turning half way through to ensure even crispiness!

Whilst chicken is cooking you can make up the easiest dip ever. Microwave the cheese for about 10-15secs, (don’t overheat!!!) until melty and gooey, add the forage frais, a squeeze of lemon juice and season to taste. Simples.

Such a simple and easy recipe, you could change the seasonings in the crumb as well if you like.
