       Popcorn Chicken serves 5


750g chicken breast, cubed

1 tsp sweet paprika

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp olive oil

1 tbsp plain flour

1 egg, beaten

250g breadcrumbs

1/4 cup sunflower/rapeseed oil

salt & pepper


  • Pre-heat oven to 180C and line a dish with baking parchment.

  • In a large bowl, mix together chicken, both paprikas, garlic and teaspoon of olive oil.

  • Add a good grind of sea salt and black pepper & set aside to marinate for 10 mins.

  • Stir in the flour and egg.

  • Lay the breadcrumbs on a large plate. 

  • Put about a third of the chicken mixture on the breadcrumbs and pat, turning the chicken with your fingers. Place into the dish. Repeat until all the chicken is coated.

  • Drizzle the oil over the chicken. I have written 1/4 cup but add however much you want. This amount will create a crispy nugget of chicken. Less will be as tasty but healthier. A little more will also be ok!

  • Bake for around 40 minutes until the chicken is golden and crispy. 

  • Serve immediately.

Serving Suggestion- I served this with baby potatoes, roasted in a little olive oil and Maldon sea salt, with some raw, crisp vegetables
