Make these crispy coated chicken dippers by celeb chef Annabel Karmel with the kids.

They’re really easy to make and with our simple step-by-step picture recipe you’ll have these finger-licking chicken pieces ready in no time.

This recipe serves up to 4 people and takes 35 mins to prepare (plus marinating) and 15 mins to cook and is the perfect starter recipe for your child to try out with a little help from you.

Your child can learn all about raw meat – from washing your hands after touching it to how to cut the chicken into slices.

It’s the perfect dinner recipe too so they can help you make dinner – learning and cooking at the same time.

Annabel says: 'These strips of chicken are coated in crisps! I’ve used cheese, but you can choose whichever flavour you like best.'


Step 1

Mix the ingredients for the marinade in a large bowl. Coat the chicken slices in the marinade. Cover and leave for at least an hour.


Step 2

Next, preheat the oven to 200˚C/400˚F/Gas Mark 6. Crush the crisps into crumbs in a plastic bag. Then mix them with the Parmesan.


Step 3

Mix the flour and pepper in one bowl. Beat the egg with 1tbsp cold water in a separate bowl. Dip the chicken in the flour, egg, then crumbs.


Step 4

When done, place the chicken strips on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 15 mins. Turn over after 7 mins.


Step 5

To make the maple mustard mayo sauce mix 4tbsp mayonnaise, 1tsp wholegrain Dijon mustard, 1½tsp maple syrup or honey and 1tsp cold water together in a small bowl.

To make the slightly spicy tomato sauce mix ½tsp sweet chilli sauce, 2tbsp tomato ketchup and 2tsp lime juice in a small bowl.


Step 6

Your chicken dippers are now ready to be served.
