Four ingredient nuggets? Winner winner, chicken dinner!


  • 400 g skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 2 cups low-fat natural or Greek yoghurt
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika, optional
  • 2 tbs canola oil


  1. Put the yoghurt and breadcrumbs into separate bowls. Mix the paprika into the breadcrumbs if using.
  2. Dip the chicken pieces into the yoghurt and then press down into the breadcrumbs to coat all sides.
  3. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan. Cook half the chicken pieces over a medium heat until outside is brown and crunchy, then flip chicken pieces and cook the other side.
  4. They will need about 5 minutes on each side. Repeat with the rest of the oil and chicken.
  5. Make sure to check that the chicken is cooked through before serving.

Variation: Use a beaten egg or milk instead of yoghurt.

    Hi Melissa, we haven't tried making these in the air fryer so unfortunately can't offer you much insight. If you want to give it a go I'd suggest giving them a light spray of oil first - and please let us know how they turned out! Thanks, GM

    Would these cook all right in the air fryer? Or would the coating come off and make a mess?

    I loved the recipe but only gave it four star as it’s kind of messy. I think children would love this one as much as adults do. Healthier version to have as takeaway night
