Healthy Chicken Nuggets Recipe
- 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
- Put the yoghurt and breadcrumbs into separate bowls. Mix the paprika into the breadcrumbs if using.
- Dip the chicken pieces into the yoghurt and then press down into the breadcrumbs to coat all sides.
- 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.
- They will need about 5 minutes on each side. Repeat with the rest of the oil and chicken.
- Make sure to check that the chicken is cooked through before serving.
Variation: Use a beaten egg or milk instead of yoghurt.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with homemade wedges, salad and sauce
