Homemade Chicken Nuggets

400g of chicken breasts or thighs that have been deboned
Juice of half a lemon
1 egg
1 tbsp vinegar
½ tsp baking soda
1 cup wholemeal flour (or buckwheat flour if you want them gluten free) or a cup of wholemeal breadcrumbs
½ tsp paprika
1 tbsp chopped herbs (I used parsley, thyme and chives)
¼ tsp sea salt
½ tsp freshly cracked pepper

Preheat oven to 180 oC

Slice the chicken into 6 nugget sized pieces and sprinkle on the lemon juice.
While that is sitting, get two wide bowls out.
In the first place the egg and whisk well with a fork, adding the vinegar.
In the other place the flour, baking soda, paprika, herbs and salt and pepper. Mix well.
Dip the chicken into the eggs, making sure it’s well covered.
Next, dip the chicken in the flour, covering well.
Place on a baking tray and bake for 10-15 mins or until chicken is cooked.
Serve with a green salad for a lovely lunch.
