Clean Chicken Nuggets

Can you tell this was a high carb day?

One of the best ways to stay on track with a clean eating lifestyle is to make healthy, nutritious versions of your favourite junk food. Nobody likes to feel deprived so recreating dishes is a good way to satisfy a craving! I like to make my own curries, Chinese dishes and pita bread pizzas but one of my favourites just now is these clean chicken nuggets! They're so easy that even Gordon makes them, ready for me getting home from kettlebells... 

To serve 2 people...

400g chicken breast (we buy it already diced so it's even easier!)
1 egg
wholemeal flour
dessicated coconut

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees. Lay out 3 dishes - fill one with the flour, one with coconut and crack the egg into another. Start by coating the chicken in flour, dip it in the egg and then roll it in the dessicated coconut so that it covers the chicken. Place your chicken nuggets onto a baking tray and pop them in the oven for about half an hour (turning half way) until the coconut starts to turn golden brown and deliciously crispy! Serve with healthy baked sweet potato fries :)

You could even mix spices through the flour to add a different flavour!


Who needs KFC?
