Omega-3-Boosted Chicken Fingers

  • Makes4 to 4 servings

A little ground flaxseed adds healthy fats, fibre and crunchiness to kids' favourite chicken fingers


  • 680 g skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 3/4 cup crushed cornflake cereal

  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan


  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Slice chicken breasts lengthwise into 1½ in (3.5 cm) wide strips. Place in a medium bowl and combine with egg. Season with salt and pepper.

  • In another bowl, combine cornflakes, ground flaxseed and cheese, then spread in an even layer on a large plate. One at a time, roll chicken strips in the crumb mixture, pressing down to help the coating stick. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  • Bake for about 15 minutes, turning at halfway point, until golden brown and cooked through.
