  • 2 tsp mixed spice (optional)

  • 10 chicken drumstick or 4 chicken breasts

  • 1 eggs

  • 1 tsp mild chilli powder (optional)

  • 1 clove garlic crushed (optional)

  • 2 tsp mixed herbs

  • 250g chicken bovril

  • 2 tsp ground black pepper (optional)

  • 4 slices brown bread


  1. Place the chicken in a deep pan filled with water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Drain and leave to cool.
  2. When cool, remove the skin and pat dry. Cut chicken breasts into strips.
  3. Place the bread and mixed herbs into a food processor, blend until crumbled and empty onto a large dish.
  4. Scoop out all the bovril paste into a small bowl. Mix in the egg, crushed garlic, pepper, spice and chilli until you have a gloopy paste.
  5. Now for the fun bit, but before you start switch on the oven to its highest setting and have a baking tray sprayed with fry light on stand by.
  6. Using a spoon, carefully dribble the paste all over a piece of chicken, then roll it in the breadcrumb mixture and place on the baking tray. Repeat until all the chicken pieces are covered.
  7. Place the chicken in the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the breadcrumbs have started to go brown and crisp. Remove and leave to cool.
  8. Once cool transfer to a serving plate. Enjoy!

Handy Hint

Make sure the tray is sprayed with fry light!
