Everyone loves chicken goujons. The problem is that when people think of chicken goujons, most people immediately think of the ones from a fast food restaurant and they are missing out on homemade chicken goujons that are a million times healthier, way more tasty and so easy! Maybe not as easy as buying them out of a restaurant but the tiny bit of effort is so worth it. There are a lot of ways you can serve these. I’ll name a few… in a wrap, a chicken goujon roll, with chunky home cut chips, just with loads of veggies, sliced up and tossed in a mixed salad with sweet homemade dressing and it goes on. They are so versatile. You could even experiment with the flavors in the crumb mixture, try adding different herbs or a  dash of chilli powder to spice things up or even some grated parmesan to give it a cheesy kick.

2 chicken breasts, cut into strips

3 garlic cloves

1 lemon, zested

8 cream crackers

25g butter

1/2tsp dried parsley

  • Preheat the oven to 200ºc/390ºf and line a baking sheet with tin foil or greaseproof paper.
  • Pile the garlic, lemon zest, cream crackers, butter and parsley into a food processor. Season with salt and pepper and whizz until it forms a fine breadcrumb texture.
  • Pour the crumb mixture out onto a plate, Put the flour on a separate plate and the beaten egg in a shallow bowl.
  • First coat the chicken strips in flour completely, then dip in egg and finally coat in the crumb mix.
  • Place them on the prepared sheet and bake in the oven for about 15mins or  until the chicken is cooked through.
