My DD 8.5months will only eat finger food and is allergic to egg. She loved the chicken goujons I made but had egg to stick on the breadcrumbs, also want to make my own fish fingers. What can I use?

Melted butter?

bit of oil ??

I'm guessing maybe ground linseed mixed with a bit of water?

milk is fine I use it to make chicken goujons

Will try milk but thought they wouldn't stick with just that.

I've used yoghurt before with chicken goujons. Nigella's got it in one of her books

I've found so long as you dip them in the flour first then milk to make it sticky the breadcrumbs do stick, good luck

breadcrumbs do just stick to chicken ime, then bake rather than fry and they'll stay on.

Aitch you are right that putting them in the oven will help them bind together. Will try that.
