Chia & Paprika Chicken Goujons With Asian Slaw

I had an unhealthy obsession with chicken goujons before I gave up gluten & dairy so it was only a matter of time before I decided to re-create them for myself. Although there are gluten free goujon options in shops such as Marks & Spencer, there's nothing like making them fresh from scratch - It only takes a short amount of time to make and it's seriously easy with little ingredients involved.

What you'll need:

-500g chicken breast (you can either buy the strips or just simply slice up breasts)
-4tbsp Linwoods milled chia seeds
-2tbsp gluten free flour (plain)
-3tbsp smoked paprika
-1tbsp Lucy Bee coconut oil
-1 large egg
-Salt & pepper for seasoning

Asian Slaw:

-Red cabbage
-Grated carrot
-White cabbage
-Pea shoots
-Dairy free mayo
-Olive oil
-1 small red chilli
-A handful of coriander
-Purple radish leaves
-Salt & pepper for seasoning
-1/4 fresh lime

How to make:

Start by preparing the goujon coating mix, do so by adding all the dry ingredients along with some seasoning into a bowl and mixing together well. Whisk up the egg until it's nice and smooth. After you have prepared all your ingredients make sure to get the pan nice and hot with the Lucy Bee coconut oil melting.
Then simply take each strip of chicken, dunk it into the egg mix followed by the dry flour mix and place into the pan. Give each side of the chicken strip a few minutes on each side to make sure the chicken is cooked thoroughly all the way through. Once the chicken is cooked all the way through, take the chicken out of the pan and place onto a plate to rest.

Asian Slaw:

Start by grating up the cabbages and carrots then place into a big bowl along with the pea shoots, a big squeeze of dairy free mayo, olive oil, salt & pepper, some fresh coriander leaves, a chopped up chilli and finish with some purple radish leaves (optional - but they make the dish look pretty!) and the fresh lime juice.

I absolutely love how quick and easy this dish is but it's also perfect for lunch or dinner.

Hope you love this dish as much as I do.
