    • 250g chicken mini fillets
    • 2tbsp plain flour
    • 1tsp sweet paprika
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 150g cornflakes, crushed
    • 2tbsp sunflower or light olive oil

    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.
