Chicken Goujons


I’m all for finding ways to cook traditionally unhealthy foods in a healthier way. On the way home from work I had an immense craving for chicken goujons and as I haven’t made them in ages I decided now was the time. The coating on the chicken worked really well and stopped the chicken drying out. I served it with potato wedges and coleslaw. The coleslaw we had with it was a bit disappointing. I admit it was shop brought, and according to the packaging it had mature cheddar in it, but we certainly couldn’t taste any.
