Ingredients
  

  • 500 g Chicken breast
  • 150 g Corn flakes
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tbsp Curry poweder
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil

Instructions
 

  • Cut the chicken breasts up into nugget-size chunks, and season with salt and pepper. 
  • Place the cornflakes in a plastic bag and crush the flakes into small pieces, then transfer them onto a big flat plate.
  • Whisk the eggs up in a bowl with the curry powder. 
  • Dip each chicken piece into the egg mixture and then roll in the cornflakes. 
  • Heat the oil in a large pan, and fry the chicken for 2-3 minutes each side.
  • Once cooked through and browned, let them drain on paper napkins before serving.

Notes

For a wholesome variant, the chicken pieces can be enveloped in a crust of ground almonds or whole wheat breadcrumbs, seasoned with a medley of herbs and spices to suit one's taste. Baked to a golden perfection rather than fried, these nuggets retain a delightful crunch without the excess oil.
 
Paired with a rainbow of steamed vegetables or a vibrant salad, these nuggets become a centrepiece in a satisfying and nurturing meal, making meal times a celebration of wholesome indulgence.
