The Internet is great for finding new recipes and so when I came across Nairn’s Oatcakes Website I fell in love with their creative recipes. I thought I’d blog my favourite starting with Oaty Chicken Goujons & Sweet Chilli Salsa.  This recipe stood out as I’ve never made my own ‘chicken dippers’ and it looked like a healthy, simple and fun dish to try.

I have to say that this really was one of the most delicious meals I have ever tasted.. and it’s super healthy too. You can serve this dish as a starter or as a main course with sweet potato wedges.. it’ll go down a treat I assure you!

Nutritional stats provided are for per 1 chicken goujon.


  • 350g boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets*
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 100g oatcakes**
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp olive oil OR spray oil

*Chicken can be swapped for turkey breast

**I used 2 different types of oat cakes for variety – plain & red pepper flavour!


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 190°C, (fan oven 170°C) or Gas Mark 5

Step 2

Lightly rinse the chicken breast, pat dry and cut into long, thin strips

Step 3

Place the oatcakes in a food processor and whiz until crushed. Add the chilli powder (to any plain oat cakes) and whiz for 10 seconds, then place on a large plate or in a polythene bag/bowl

Step 4

Place the flour on a separate plate and the egg in a shallow bowl. Roll the chicken strips (x 16) in the flour, then dip in the egg, allowing any excess to drip back into the bowl and then into the crushed oatcakes until thoroughly coated

Step 5

Place the chicken pieces on a non-stick baking tray and drizzle with the oil or spray

Step 6

Cook in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until thoroughly cooked and the coating is crisp and golden

Step 7

Once cooked, serve with lettuce leaves, lime wedges, salsa & sweet potato wedges *yum*

    These were absolutely gorgeous! I’m not a fan of chicken on its own as I get bored and this was the perfect addition to my dinner. Thanks Nic

    Amazing! Used plain rough Nairns (got a massive box in Poundland!) with some chilli powder mixed in. Served with spinach, avocado and a bit of sweet chilli dipping sauce. Want to try with sweet potato and maybe a healthy version of baked beans! Know any recipes, Nic?

      Hi Jenni! Thanks for your great comment. Baked beans aren’t exactly bad for you really (reduced salt/sugar versions are available), but I am working on a bean burger recipe so look out for that! I LOVE sweet potato too, and eat it nearly every day! Nic xx

    Made these last night for the family. Went down well with everyone. Easy to make and really tasty. Can add anything you want to the topping to add flavour. Excellent
