Easy Crispy Chicken Nuggets
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 3
  • 2 skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into small cubes
  • 3 tablespoons red pesto
  • 2-3 handfuls cornflakes, crushed into small pieces
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 400℉/200℃.
  2. Place the cubed chicken pieces in a bowl, add the pesto, and mix together until all pieces are covered.
  3. Pour the oil onto a shallow baking tray, just enough to cover it, and place in the oven for 5 minutes.
  4. Put the cornflakes in a freezer bag, crush them into small pieces, and add the chicken in small batches. Shake each batch around until each piece is coated with cornflakes.
  5. Place the chicken nuggets onto the heated greased baking tray so that no pieces are touching each other and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
*Breadcrumbs or panko can be used in place of cornflakes. *If you are wanting to pre-make these and freeze them, then once the nuggets are coated, place them on a baking sheet (not touching each other) and put them in the freezer. When they are frozen solid, place them in a container or freezer bag and store in freezer until ready to bake.
