Recipe's preparation

    Homemade Healthy Chicken Nuggets the kids will love
  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Very lightly brush the tray with a little oil.


    1. Add all crumb ingredients to dry TM bowl, chop for 5 sec/speed7/MC on.

    Check if it has the consistency you like. I sometimes chop again if I want smaller crumbs. My kids love seeing the sunflower seeds and even pick them off during dinner.

    Set aside on a large plate or in a large bowl.

    2. Without washing bowl, add all nugget mix ingredients, chop for 40 sec/speed 9/MC on.

    3. Shape about 30 nuggets with damp hands and coat in the crumb mix. I often double coat if there is enough.

    4. Place the nuggets on the tray and brush with a little oil. Bake for about 20-30 mins or until cooked through. 

    5. I finished mine under the grill, 2mins one side, then turn them all over and 2 more mins the other side.


    Serve with a salad. Keeps in an airtight container in the fridge for about 2 days and freezes well. Can be frozen after before or after cooking.
