When you are seriously craving a cheat meal or kiddy food (in fact if you have kids make them these!) and you would gladly give your right arm for some junk then stop and try this recipe first!

Succulent chunks of chicken breast encased in a crispy coating – other than some decent ketchup to dunk them in nothing else is necessary!

They are SO simple to make and have very few ingredients so give them a try.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Yields: 1 Serving


1 Chicken breast

30g Oat flour

3 Egg whites

Pinch of salt & pepper

1 teaspoon of coconut oil to grease the baking paper.


1Pre heat your oven to 240’c

2Before you start spread the oat flour out onto a plate and sprinkle over the salt & pepper, and put the egg whites into a bowl.

3You also need a baking sheet ready which is lined and greased with plenty of coconut oil.

4Cut the chicken breast into bite sized chunks and put them in the bowl of egg whites.

5Coat them in the egg white then transfer them to the oat flour. Turn each chunk separately to ensure a good, even coating.

6Repeat the process putting the chicken back into the egg, then finally the oat flour.

7Place the chicken nuggets onto the baking sheet leaving a gap between each one.

8Bake for 10 minutes then turn each nugget over. Bake for a further 5-8 minutes depending on the size of the chicken chunks. You want them to begin to brown to get them crispy.

9Remove from the oven and allow the nuggets to cool slightly before serving.
