Meal Inspiration Monday- Paprika Chicken Goujons

Sometimes we all want a simple meal which the whole family are going to eat. Of course, you always have those meals for emergencies in the freezer. I wondered if I could make one of those meal chicken goujons from scratch because this then means I know what is in them. Plus they also seemed a really easy meal to make and could be frozen for when we needed them as well.  Today I am going to share with you the recipe which I think is originally a Hello Fresh meal to make these paprika chicken goujons.

Ingredients- Serves 2

2 Chicken Breasts

Glug Of Oil

24g Plain Flour

1/2 Lime Zest

17g Paprika

10g Dried Thyme

Method
  1. Lay one of the chicken breasts between two sheets of clingfilm and bash until 2cm thick. I did it with a rolling pin, to be honest, it helps get rid of any anger.  Do this for all chicken breasts
  2. Cut the flattened chicken breast into 6 to 7 long strips
  3. Put a glug of oil in large frying on a medium to high heat. Let it get really hot
  4.  Put the flour in a mixing bowl with the lime zest, paprika and dried thyme.  Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Mix together really well then add the chicken strips. Toss with your hands to ensure the chicken is well coated in the seasoning flour.
  6. Once the oil is hot add half the chicken to the pan.
  7. Cook until golden all over this should be 3-4 minutes.
  8. Then cook the other half and serve with wedges, chips or salad.

Hopefully, you found this very interesting because I know Goujons are something which a lot of people go for when they need a quick meal.

What are your go-to quick meals?
