Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets


  • 500g chicken mince
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 2 cups cauliflower, grated
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup wholegrain breadcrumbs (see note)
  • 1 teaspoon dried mixed herb
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Use a grater or food processor to grate the cauliflower into course crumb consistency. Cook cauliflower in microwave or over the stove in a saucepan until soft.
  3. In a large bowl, place the chicken, carrot, cauliflower, half the breadcrumbs, egg and seasoning and mix to combine.
  4. Place the remaining breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl and stir to combine.
  5. Shape a mixture into nugget shapes and coat with breadcrumb mixture.
  6. Place nuggets on a baking tray. Bake the nuggets for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway, or until golden.


  • You can make your own breadcrumbs by processing wholegrain bread or rolled oats in food processor.
  • Storage: keep leftover cooked chicken nuggets in the fridge for 1-2 days or in the freezer for 1-2 months. Uncooked chicken nuggets can be stored in the freezer for 1-2 months.
