Garlic and Herb Chicken Nugget Recipe for babies and toddlers

It's been a few weeks of tweaking and varying but as it's my blog, I reserve the right to post variations on a recipe; think of it as a brand extension!  If you would like to see the original recipe, just click on this link.

Chicken Nuggets (aka inside out mini chicken kievs) - serves 1 Mummy and 1 Toddler


1 skinless chicken breast
1 slice of bread
A few herbs, I used parsley and garlic chives
Approx 20g grana padano, grated (or you could use parmesan)
Half a clove of garlic, chopped finely and crushed with the flat of a knife
1 egg
Spray oil


Cut the chicken breast into approx 1 inch (2.5cm) cubes.  Break the bread into pieces and put into a food processor with the herbs.  Process until in crumbs.  Add to the garlic and grated cheese.

Crack and whisk the egg slightly.  Dip each piece of chicken into the egg then the breadcrumbs, put on a baking tray lined with baking paper.  If not cooking immediately, cover and chill until ready to cook.

Preheat the oven to 200oC (400oF) spray the nuggets with a little spray oil or drizzle a little oil over them and bake the nuggets for 20 minutes in the preheated oven or until cooked through.

Leave to cool until they're at the right temperature for your little one.

Maybe I ought to play around with a real chicken kiev recipe for babies and toddlers... watch this space...


  1. Thanks for supporting Food on friday: Garlic. Cheers

  2. I wish your recipes were in cup measurements versus weights for those of us who don't have scales. Maybe something to consider for future posts :)

    1. Sorry, I promise I will try but as a Brit I find cups so confusing and I worry about the accuracy. But for this recipe, the only measure you would need would be for the cheese and if you did about 2tbsp of the grated cheese that would be about right.


I would love to read your comments but please don't include links in them.
