Taste.com.au has put together great kid friendly recipes, which the whole family can enjoy. I tend to get overwhelmed when there are too many ingredients in a meal but most of the recipes on this site are quick and easy with few ingredients. You can also create a shopping list on this site if you are planning meals ahead of time, print it out and take it with you to the supermarket.
A family favourite in my house are the homemade chicken nuggets.
Ingredients (serves 4)
- 1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
- 2 cups (200g) fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
- salt and cracked black pepper
- flour, for dusting
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 3 chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into 3cm cubes
- lemon wedges, to serve
Preheat oven to 210°C. Place the mixed herbs, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper in a large bowl and mix until combined, then set aside. Place the flour in another bowl and the eggs in a third bowl. Toss the chicken cubes in the flour, dusting off any excess. Working in batches, dip the chicken pieces into the egg, then the breadcrumbs, pressing to coat well.
Once all the chicken is crumbed, heat a little oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Cook the chicken in batches until golden. Remove and transfer to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Place in oven for 4-5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve chicken with lemon wedges and a little whole egg mayonnaise for dipping, if desired.
These chicken bites freeze well. They can be frozen before or after cooking.
