This recipe is so easy, and sesame seeds are cheap and easy to find at your local supermarket. They are also a great source of calcium and iron!
It is even better than the processed gluten filled crumb that you can buy already made….and cheaper too. It’s a win win!
I put the seeds into my Kambrook Bliz2Go and pulse for a few seconds. The crumbs can be made a head of time and stored in an air tight jar in the pantry until needed.
500g skinless chicken breast
1 cup sesame seeds ground
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 a lemon
1/2 tsp sea salt
a pinch of pepper
Olive or coconut oil for the pan
Preheat the oven to 200 C. Cut the chicken breasts into nugget sized pieces and squeeze the juice of half a lemon over them. Put them into a plastic Tupperware container or snap lock bag add the crumbs, herbs, spices, salt and pepper. Shake lightly to combine and then add the chicken pieces.
Pop the container or bag into the freezer for a few minutes, and pop an oven proof dish (coated in plenty of olive or coconut oil) into the oven to heat.
Once the oven is heated, gently place the nuggets, one by one onto the hot oil, they should start to sizzle.
Leave to cook for 10 minutes, and turn over. Cook for another 10 minutes until lightly crisp and golden.
