Olivia's inspiration to make this dish was that her favourite treat is nuggets from KFC or McDonalds and so she wanted to come up with a healthy alternative to her favourite meal!


Chop chicken to nugget size portion.
Coat in seasoned flour and then beaten egg and finally blend the brown bread in a blender to create breadcrumbs and coat chicken.
Repeat and lay on a lightly oiled tray.
Cook in oven at 180 c for 20 mins until cooked thoroughly.

Chop potatoes into chunky wedges season with salt and place on a lightly oiled tray and cook in oven at same time as chicken, these will also cook for about 20 mins.

Whilst the Chicken and potatoes cook make the sweetcorn relish.

Chop the onion, pepper and garlic and cook in a lightly oiled pan for 5 mins, add the sweetcorn and cook gently for another few mins, add sugar and vinegar and cook for a further 2 mins.
