Cornflake Chicken Bites

I bought an entire box of cornflakes to adore my sweet corn macarons and it is only natural that I now work at using the box up before they go stale. Sure, I could eat cornflakes like a normal person for breakfast with milk. But I like to do things with my food. And so here it goes – cornflake chicken bites.

Recipe as follows:

200g minced meat of choice (I choose chicken)
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 egg yolk
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
3 cups cornflakes, crushed

  1. Preheat oven to 180 Celcius (fan forced).
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together except the cornflakes and shape into balls.
  3. Roll in crushed cornflakes until well coated.
  4. Bake in oven for about 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.
  5. Serve with choice of sauce (I stuck with plain old tomato ketchup).

I really enjoyed eating these – it tastes like a healthier version of KFC’s popcorn chicken with some heat to it from the chilli flakes.  I added some chicken salt after the baking as well but that’s only if you want to be unhealthy.
