We know every kid loves CHICKEN NUGGETS so why not try a healthier homemade version that will keep the kids happy and their tummies full. The best part is you can make it with them!



  • 1 egg, lightly whisked

  • 1/2 cup (45g) cornflake crumbs

  • 1 (about 200g) chicken breast fillet, cut into 3cm pieces

  • 1 small (about 290g) orange sweet potato (kumara), peeled, cut into 1cm-thick slices

  • Olive oil spray

  • Sweet chilli sauce, to serve

  • Mixed salad leaves, to serve



Step 1: Preheat oven to 200C. Line 2 oven trays with baking paper.

Step 2: Place the egg and cornflake crumbs in separate bowls. Dip a piece of chicken into the egg then in the cornflake crumbs, tossing to coat. Place on 1 prepared tray.

Step 3: Use a 4cm-diameter star pastry cutter to cut stars from the sweet potato slices. Place on the remaining tray.

Step 4: Lightly spray the chicken and sweet potato with olive oil spray. Bake the sweet potato for 10 minutes. Add the chicken and bake for a further 10-15 minutes or until the nuggets are cooked through and the sweet potato is tender. Serve with sweet chilli sauce and salad leaves.
