This Weeks Dinner - #1

This is the first of my weekly meals, if you’re a fellow lover of Gizzi Erskine, you will recognise this.

Crispy Chicken Chunks

You will need….

  • Chicken Breast Chunks (enough to feed you/whoever you’re feeding)
  • Parmesan, freshly grated 15g (p/p)
  • Fine Meal Polenta 40g
  • A pinch of pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Parsley
  • One free range egg white (cooking for four i used three)


  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and then pour onto a plate ready for coating the chicken.
  • Put your chicken pieces on to some baking parchment, fold over the pieces and then flatten them with a rolling pin.
  • In another bowl lightly whisk the egg white/s.
  • When ready, dip your chicken pieces first in the egg white and then coat in your polenta mixture. Set aside onto a plate.
  • When all pieces are coated, heat a little oil in a non stick pan (i used two pans when cooking for four,  you just cant fit this onto one).
  • Put all of the pieces in to the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side at a medium to high heat. (As you are using chunks they will probably be thinner than a breast fillet as Gizzi uses, so will need less cooking time – she suggests 7-).
  • Serve once ready and enjoy :)
