Toddlers have the most discerning palate and dealing with a fussy eater can be quite an ordeal. If your little one has just started experimenting with her taste-buds, here is a quick and nutritious snack for that developing gourmand.
1 lean chicken breast
100 gm bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
Salt & pepper to taste
100 ml milk
4 tablespoons all purpose flour
Oil for frying
Beat the chicken breast lightly with a meat tenderizer. Cut into 1 & 1/2 inch thickness long strips. You should get about 6 strips.
Season the flour with salt and pepper. Roll the strips in the flour. Dust off the excess. Mix the parmesan with the bread crumbs. Dip the strips in milk and roll in the bread crumb mixture.
Preheat some oil in a wok and lower the coated chicken strips into the oil. Fry till golden on both sides. Serve hot with some ketchup or tartar sauce.
You could bake these too. Brush the strips lightly with cooking oil and put into a greased baking sheet. Bake at 180 degrees centigrade, till golden. Turn over once for even browning.
