Rope and Chopping board anyone? Construction themed food is what we do!


  • 1 x Chicken Breast
  • Plain Wholemeal Flour
  • Pepper
  • Mixture of Dried Herbs; Thyme/Oregano/Parsley/Rosemary/Onion/Garlic (whatever you want really)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 Free Range Eggs
  • Breadcrumbs


  1. Preheat the oven to 180℃ and line a baking tray with baking paper or foil. If using foil, lightly spray with a vegetable oil so the chicken won’t stick.
  2. In 3 separate bowls, place whisked eggs, flour and breadcrumbs
  3. Slice chicken into thick strips or whatever style you fancy
  4. Lightly shake dried onion, dried garlic, herbs, salt and pepper directly on to the chicken meat so they are coated evenly. Jen’s note; any flavour combo can be used. If you like a bit of heat, add in some chilli and paprika for colour OR Mustard powder and cumin for that southern flavour (we don’t know what cumin is but apparently it’s a real spice)
  5. Get each strip and place into the flour, then coat in egg, then cover in breadcrumbs. Try to coat evenly. Place crumbed strip onto the baking tray and continue until all of the chicken is coated.
  6. Place in preheated oven and cook until golden brown, turning once (approximately 30-35mins)
  7. Serve with your ‘go to’ salad or if you couldn’t be asked get some frozen steamed veg!


Cooked Chook!
