Crisp and crunchy chicken nuggets made lighter and healthier in the Tefal ActiFry


  • 450g diced chicken breast
  • 50g plain flour
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 100g fresh breadcrumbs
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 ActiFry spoons of oil


  1. Add the diced chicken to a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Add the flour to a second bowl, eggs to a third bowl (crack them in and gently whisk with a fork) and breadcrumbs to a fourth bowl.
  3. Take one piece of chicken, coat it in flour, dip it in the egg and spinkle on the breadcrumbs. Then transfer to a large plate. Repeat until all the chicken has been coated.
  4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes then brush half of the oil on top of the chicken pieces.
  5. Pour the remaining oil into the ActiFry machine.
  6. Add a single layer of nuggets to the machine (you will have to cook them in two batches) and cook on Mode 2 (15-17 mins).
  7. Serve immediately.
