You can guarantee clean plates with this. I have worked with a lot of families and have spent hours putting together something I deemed child-friendly that would go down like a lead balloon. This was always a good dish to serve the next night to win back the kids’ affection and my own self confidence. - Linsey

For the chicken dippers

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
75g dried breadcrumbs
1 x 50g packet of plain salted crisps, crushed into small pieces in the bag
50g plain flour
1 large egg, beaten
2 boneless and skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
or 500g chicken mini fillets

For the salsa

Quantity Ingredient
400g chopped tomatoes
1 lime, grated zest
1 tablespoon finely chopped coriander
1 tablespoon soft, light brown sugar
balsamic vinegar
salt

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°c.
  2. Mix the breadcrumbs and crisps together in a large bowl. Place the flour and egg in 2 separate shallow bowls.
  3. Toss the chicken strips in the flour to coat. Dip the floured chicken pieces one by one in the beaten egg, then coat in the breadcrumb and crisp mixture. Transfer the coated chicken strips to a deep roasting tin and bake for 15–20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the salsa. Strain the chopped tomatoes through a sieve. Discard the juices. Combine the tomatoes with the remaining salsa ingredients and stir well.
  5. Serve the chicken dippers with the salsa and a salad or some steamed vegetables (there's only a mild reduction in likeable factor by adding veg!).
