  1. Brilliant, thanks for this! My daughter loves chicken goujons but I have been trying to avoid the shop ones as I know how awful they can be. She’s allergic to egg but I think with an egg substitute this would work perfectly.

  2. I need to try making these myself on the days that I don’t use my bread for other things on Slimming World. I’ve used smash crumbs before to cover chicken and that works really well too x

  3. This is a great recipe to have. In fact I’ve been looking for one. I always feel a bit guilty when buying ready to cook chicken nuggets/goujon’s, because I know we can cook it from scratch too. Thanks for this recipe 🙂 x

  4. Mmmmm that sounds really good. My daughter is quite (very!) picky about her food especially if she can’t see what’s inside the breadcrumbs, but had some homemade chicken goujons like this at the weekend, so might have to try this at home.

  5. These look lovely and simple to make. I have made home made chicken nuggets before using a slimming world recipe and they were so much nicer than shop bought ones! Plus they are much better for you

  6. These look great – little man is a big fan of goujons but I’m always super conscious of just how little chicken may be in the processed ones – will definitely be giving these a try. Bookmarked for future use!
