The kids are going to love making and eating these delicious cornflake chicken dippers. Each goujon is coated with a crunchy cornflake coating, which works wonders with the tender chicken. Delicious dunked in homemade cheese and chive dip.

Ingredients

  • 250g chicken mini fillets
  • 2tbsp plain flour
  • 1tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 150g cornflakes, crushed
  • 2tbsp sunflower or light olive oil
  • For the dip:
  • 50ml soured cream
  • 50g Philadelphia
  • few snipped chives, optional
  • To serve:
  • mashed potatoes
  • baked beans or any veg you like

Method

  • To make this chicken breast recipe, trim the chicken into equal finger-sized portions. Mix the flour and paprika together and spread onto a plate. Put the egg into a bowl and beat with a splash of water. Spread the cornflakes onto a separate plate.

  • Dip the chicken in the flour, next coat with the egg, then cover completely in the crushed cornflakes. Set aside, well covered, in the fridge until you want to cook.

  • Heat the oven to 200C, gas 6. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Once hot, add the chicken and fry for 3-4mins each side until golden and crispy. They will cook more evenly if you do this in batches. Arrange the chicken on a baking tray, lined with baking parchment, and finish cooking in the oven for around 5 mins.

  • Meanwhile, cook or heat any veggies. Mix the soured cream and Philadelphia and serve in a little pot alongside the chicken and any veg.
