- 250g chicken mini fillets
- 2tbsp plain flour
- 1tsp sweet paprika
- 1 egg, beaten
- 150g cornflakes, crushed
- 2tbsp sunflower or light olive oil
For the dip:
- 50ml soured cream
- 50g Philadelphia
- few snipped chives, optional
- mashed potatoes
- baked beans or any veg you like
- Trim the chicken into equal finger-sized portions. Mix the flour and paprika together and spread onto a plate. Put the egg into a bowl and beat it with a splash of water. Spread the cornflakes onto a separate plate.
- Dip the chicken in the flour, next coat with the egg, then cover completely in the crushed cornflakes. Set aside, well covered, in the fridge until you want to cook.
- Heat the oven to 200C, gas 6. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Once hot, add the chicken and fry for 3-4mins each side until golden and crispy. They will cook more evenly if you do this in batches. Arrange the chicken on a baking tray, lined with baking parchment, and finish cooking in the oven for around 5 mins.
- Meanwhile, cook or heat any veggies. Mix the soured cream and Philadelphia and serve in a little pot alongside the chicken and any veg.
