BAKED CRISPY CHICKEN NUGGETS
A healthy version of infamous chicken nuggets that is gluten free as well. With the summer party season right upon us and valuing the healthy eating and living, I can not adjust with flavourless food no matter what. This is spiced laden, light, melting in the mouth recipe. ENJOY!!
250 Grams of Boneless Chicken Cubes marinated in 1/2 of a freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 Slices of Bread (I used gluten free bread-OPTIONAL)
1 Cold Egg
1/4 Cup of Corn Flour
1/4 Cup of Chickpea Flour
1/2 TSP of Oregano
1/2 TSP of Thyme
1 TSP of Paprika
1/4 TSP of Chilli Flakes
1/2 TSP of Cumin Powder
1/4 TSP of Garlic Powder
2 Bay Leaves
1 TSP of Ginger Paste
1 TSP of Sugar
1 TSP of Salt (Can be adjusted as per taste.)
1/4 TSP of Black Pepper Powder
Preheat the oven to 190-200 degree celcius/395 fahrenheit.
Flatten chicken breasts with a rolling pin or minced meat hammer. Cut the chicken into similar size for same cooking time. Marinate with ginger paste and lemon juice.
Blend bread slices with spices to achieve grainy crumb consistency. Toast the crumbs as this helps to evaporate the moisture and the final result turns out crisper.
Take three large bowls. Add flour in one, egg in second and spiced breadcrumbs and spices mixture in third.
Dip chicken in flour then egg and finally roll in spicy bread crumbs. Make sure to shake off the excess flour and egg coating.
Spread the chicken bites evenly on the baking sheet and cook for 15-20 minutes depending on the oven and heat. Rotate in between to let both the sides crisp up. Serve with sprinkling of smoked paprika and coriander leaves with the dip of your choice.
