Nuggets. They are probably the most iconic food of childhood. I’m trying new things with mine, and these crunchy oat and sesame chicken strips are the best nuggets we’ve had yet! The kids love them, they are crunchy, yummy and super tasty.
These are bigger than nuggets, but really the cutting of the chicken is entirely up to you. I made these at lunchtime and reheated for dinner with some fried rice and the kids gobbled them. The really have a great flavour that is far better than any you’ll buy frozen and you know what’s in them!
If you wanted to, you could coat these and freeze on a tray so that you’ve got them ready to go. If you’re doing that I recommend doing a double batch as one batch makes enough for dinner and lunch the next day.
Now, what to serve them with? Well, we had them with fried rice tonight, because we had leftovers…but they’d be delish with steamed veggies, roasted sweet potato or even on a burger!
These crunchy oat and sesame chicken strips would be perfect for a kids party as a replacement for nuggets. Serve with a couple of dipping sauces (mayonnaise with dijon mustard is really nice with them) and they are the perfect party snack.
Once cooked they are also pretty yummy sliced into pieces and served with a salad, the crunch of the coating really works well with a tangy dressing!
