What you need

1 to 1.2kg chicken thigh fillets cut into bite size pieces

1 cup breadcrumbs (store bought)
4 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
(now add either 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper and 1 tablespoon garlic powder or 1/2 cup parmesan cheese) You can use whatever your favorite flavours are (parmesan is mine)

1 egg beaten
1/2 cup milk

The process

Heat your oven to 200 Celsius and litghtly oil a baking tray.

Mix the coating ingredients together in a bowl and set aside

Mix the egg and the milk together and pop the chicken pieces into it.

Now take pieces of chicken from the milk mixture and drop them into the crumbs, shake them about and place onto the baking tray. Don’t shake off the excess crumbs.

bake for 15minutes and thats that.

If you like this one you may want to do it with whole chicken pieces as well, just bake them at 180 instead of 200 for 30 minutes. Delicious I tell you.

You should also try the chicken potato cakes… they are great.
