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.
