  • Serves: 4
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Effort: easy


  • 225 g white bread
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1 egg
  • 125 ml milk
  • 900 g chicken, boneless


1. Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6. Slice the bread, and toast until light brown. Break up into pieces, without taking off the crusts. Grind to fine crumbs in a food processor.

2. Add the garlic powder and paprika and process again. Place in a large plastic freezer bag or tip into a deep tray.

3. Beat the egg in a large bowl with the milk, and add the chicken pieces, in batches if necessary. Drain the chicken from the egg mixture, and toss in the breadcrumbs - coating the crumbs evenly around each nugget.

4. Arrange the crumbed chicken on a lightly greased baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes until golden and cooked through. Serve straight away, accompanied with a tomato relish.
