  • Mix the breadcrumbs with the paprika, salt and pepper. Then add the olive oil so that you have a nice batter.
  • Puree the chicken breast in a food processor and add the parsley, garlic, one beaten egg and ketchup.
  • Place the second beaten egg in a bowl ready for batter coating.
  • Make the chicken mixture into chicken nugget shapes and then cover in the egg and then in the breadcrumbs.
  • Cook for 10 minutes on 200c.


If you find that the chicken nuggets get dry then add a little extra olive oil half way through the cooking process.
