Chicken Nuggets

preheat oven to 180c (350f)

1 Breast of Chicken cut into cubes big enough for your little one to eat

2 Tbsp tapioca flour

1 egg beaten

Crumb mix
1 tsp  of each activated buckinis, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, coconut, chia and psyllium husk.

1/2 tsp salt

crack of pepper

Method:

Whizz Crumb ingredients in a food processor until it is all ground.

Roll Chicken in flour then egg and finally crumbs.

Place nuggets onto a lined tray and pop in oven for 25 mins turning halfway through.

If you are stuck for time- a tbsp ghee in a pan and fry until golden brown.

note: I actually made these for my husband too. Double your quantity and make the cuts of chicken a little bigger and you have a meal for the whole family.

Served with Avocado and Homemade Mayo, Homemade Sauce and Sweet Potato Hashies, or with a salad or vegetables. Don’t worry if the kids just want to eat them alone, they are packed with hidden goodies that will nourish their growing bodies.

These can also be minced with added vegetables (one small addition at a time if you have a vegetable detective)

Prawn Burgers

preheat oven to 180c (350f)

These were a great hit with my daughter who still calls them chicken burgers.

1 Dozen Prawn Cutlets (tail off) we often buy frozen in bulk

1/2 tsp fish sauce

1/2 tsp tamari or coconut aminos

2 tsp sunflower seeds

1 egg

Method:

Combine all into the food processor and whizz until a paste forms

Place small balls or patties onto a lined baking tray, sprinkle with sesame seeds and pop into oven for 10 minutes, turning after 10 and baking for another 5-10

You can also pan fry these in coconut oil

Jazz them up for the adults with chillies, chives and coriander and you’ve got a family meal.

Fillet of Fishies

These were amazing for the whole family and so easy to make

2 Fillets of fish of choice (we used Bream as it was fresh that day)

1 tsp chia

2 egg

1/2 tsp salt and pepper

1/2 tsp sesame seeds

Method:

Pop everything into food processor and whizz

Fry in a little ghee.

My daughter had these as stacks with cucumber, avo, mayo and capsicum

I added some chillies after I had portioned out my daughters burgers and made them up for the rest of us.

 

All these recipes can be made in 10 mins and left in the oven to cook. Pressed for time they can be fried. It is great to just duck into the butcher or fish shop and grab something on the way home and then make the rest from the fridge contents.
