Description (Some HTML is OK)

A simple way to make your own chicken goujons - great for kids. You can make these in bulk, freeze them and cook them straight from the freezer.


Makes 4 servings

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 slices white bread (crusts cut off)
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Preparation (Some HTML is OK)

Cut the chicken breasts into smallish strips - i normally do 5-6 per chicken breast.
Put the bread, paprika and salt and pepper into a magimix or food processor and whizz until you get smooth breadcrumbs. Put the breadcrumb mix into a wide bowl. In a different bowl whisk the egg with a fork.
One at a time put the chicken pieces into the egg followed by the breadcrumbs making sure they are fully coated.
Heat the oil in a large wide frying pan until it is good and hot. Put the chicken pieces into the frying pan (the oil should sizzle when you put them in). You may need to do this in 2 batches. Cook the pieces for 2 mins each side (they need to be a golden brown colour before turning so if you're unsure leave for another minute). Transfer to a plate covered in kitchen roll to cool.
These can be served immediately or wait until completely cool and put in a freezer bag and into the freezer. To reheat, cook at 200'c for 20 mins (from frozen) - just like the ones from the supermarket!

    Very tasty. Used a mixture of wholemeal and rye breadcrumbs (already had some in the freezer) and added grated parmesian cheese to the breadcrumbs. Should have frozen at least some, but we kept nibbling and finished up all of the chicken in one evening.

    Should read parmesan, not parmesian.
