I really struggled to get Mr Boo to eat meat…the only form of meat he ate without any fuss are chicken poppers/nuggets from a local takeaway. I know a lot of people may be shaking their heads in disgust…feeding a toddler fast food..however I don’t think there is anything wrong with the occasional treat….and judging by the number of kids and parents I have seen at these places I don’t think I am in the minority.
Anyway, Mr Boo and I successfully have created our own chicken poppers and they are amazingly simple to make!
Chicken Breast-washed and cut into small pieces or shapes
1 Egg , 1 large plate of plain flour, 1 large plate of breadcrumbs
Step 1. I always line up the plates for Mr Boo in the following order plain flour, beaten egg in plate, breadcrumbs, empty plate
Step 2. Mr Boo, with his hands washed, apron on and new pizza express chefs hat on- takes the chicken pieces dips them in the plain flour, making sure the chicken is fully covered in flour, then dips them in the egg and then finally coats in breadcrumbs.
He diligently repeats the process until all the chicken pieces have been covered.
I then either shallow fry the chicken or place in the over for about 20 minutes (until the chicken is cooked)
Mr Boo and I love cooking together and the above is one of our favourite things to make.
