    Serves: 4

    Cook's tips

    Use standard cornflakes to coat the chicken, if you prefer. For a different flavour and texture, try adding a handful of sesame seeds or a little grated cheese, such as Cheddar or Parmigiano Reggiano, to the crumb mix.

    Drinks recommendation

    Serve with a pomegranate juice drink.
