OMG! These are so good. I made a batch of the BBQ shapes coated chicken strips and a batch of plain crumbed chicken strips thinking my fussy kids wouldn’t eat the BBQ ones, but they loved them! So now I have a heap of leftover plain crumbed chicken in the fridge.
I spotted this recipe in a Thermomix group I’m in, and of course, I wanted to give it a go. If you know me, I use my air fryer for baking everything, so these crumbed chicken pieces were no exception. I have changed the original recipe a little and used egg wash instead of buttermilk. Now, you don’t have to bake them in the air fryer, an oven works the same way, and you will have the same result.
What You’ll Need
- Arnott’s BBQ flavoured shapes biscuits
- Chicken breasts
- Egg and milk for the egg wash. You can substitute this and use buttermilk too.
- Plain flour
- Salt and pepper
- Olive oil spray
These Recipes are Perfect to serve with the chicken
BBQ Shapes Covered Chicken Pieces
- 1 Packet BBQ shapes crushed (I used my Thermomix in speed 9 for 8 seconds to crush mine).
- 3 large chicken breast cut into strips (I used 3 large ones). I find cutting the chicken breast on an angle across ways gets the best “strip” shape.
- 2 eggs for the basic egg wash
- 1/4 cup milk (for basic egg wash)
- 1 -2 cups plain flour
- olive oil spray
- Crush shapes biscuits in a zip lock bag with a rolling pin (I used my Thermomix on speed 9 for 8 seconds). Pour biscuit crumbs on a large plate.
- Cut chicken breast into strips. I find cutting the chicken breast on an angle across ways gets the best "strip" shape and size.
- Mix the milk and eggs together to create the egg wash in a bowl.
- Add plain flour to a large plate and give it a good seasoning of salt and pepper.
- Dip the chicken into the flour, then egg wash and then coat with the bbq shapes crumb.
- Spray chicken with olive oil. This will give the chicken some extra crunch when cooked.
- Bake the chicken in the oven or air fryer at 180 °c for 12-15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. Cooking times will vary depending on the size of the chicken. Cut a piece of chicken in half to check it's cooked through.
