Homemade Chicken Goujons Recipe
- Allow for half a chicken fillet per child and a full fillet for each adult. You can use regular or free-range chicken fillets
- A plate of plain flour (approx 150g, but you can use more if needed) seasoned with a little salt and pepper
- A bowl containing lightly beaten egg, one egg will usually coat two diced fillets
- A plate of breadcrumbs (approx 150g – again, use more if you need too)
Cut the chicken fillets into pieces/strips.
Roll each piece in the flour, dust off any excess.
Dip the floured piece into the beaten egg.
Finally, coat the chicken piece in breadcrumbs and set aside until ready to cook.
Repeat until all the chicken pieces have been floured, egged and breadcrumbed.
To cook, we deep-fried them at 170oC for about 10 mins, but they’re also suitable for oven baking at 180C for about 30 minutes (depending on size) or until cooked through.
