Super Quick Chicken Dippers

I've been such a bad blogger lately, posts have been few and far between.  It turns out that Gestational Diabetes and endless Morning Sickness are not a good combo.  Added to that, all 3 girls are on Summer School Holidays and the weather has been very hot indeed.  Blogging has taken a back seat to getting through the day most days so apologies for the lack of recipe inspiration of late.

I am gradually getting back into recipe development as and when I have the energy and feel well enough to do so.  Thank you so much for your patience.

As part of my low GI diet to help manage Gestational Diabetes I have been modifying recipes and creating meals that suit my dietary needs but are also family friendly.

These were a real hit for a tasty and easy dinner after a day out and about in the school holidays.  It takes no time at all to coat the chicken so will also be a handy recipe for when school starts back and quick dinners are required.



Super Quick Chicken Dippers

2 Tblsp plain wholemeal or white flour, I used wholemeal
2 Tblsp chopped fresh coriander or flat leaf parsley
500g chicken mini fillets or chicken breasts sliced thinly
a little oil

Mix together the fresh herbs and flour on a plate then coat the chicken strips on all sides with the herbed flour mixture.

Heat a little oil in a frying pan over a moderate heat, add the chicken and cook for a few minutes each side until cooked through.

I served ours with a green salad, crudites and a garlic and herb yoghurt dip.

  5. I like this, it is so simple and delicious. And I think this recipe always come in handy when you have fish fillet or pork chop in the fridge. A little bit of salt will be good if no worry of sodium taken. :)
