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.
