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!
Oatcake Chicken Goujons
- 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
- Preheat the oven to 190°C, (fan oven 170°C) or Gas Mark 5
- Lightly rinse the chicken breast, pat dry and cut into long, thin strips
- 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
- 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
- Place the chicken pieces on a non-stick baking tray and drizzle with the oil or spray
- Cook in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until thoroughly cooked and the coating is crisp and golden
- Once cooked, serve with lettuce leaves, lime wedges, salsa & sweet potato wedges
- Once cooked, serve with lettuce leaves, lime wedges, salsa & sweet potato wedges *yum*
