  • 150 g chicken breast cubed
  • 2 tablespoons full cream milk
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons wholemeal breadcrumbs or gluten free breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese finely grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 150 g Birds Eye Pumpkin & Cauli Mash
  • 1/3 cup green peas


  • Combine the milk and vinegar to a shallow bowl or dish and add the chicken breast. Allow to marinate for 1 hour to tenderise the chicken.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius on a fan forced setting and line a baking tray.
  • Mix the breadcrumbs, parmesan, basil, thyme, salt and pepper together in a bowl or plate. Drain the chicken and toss in the bread crumb mixture. Shake off the excess crumb and transfer to the baking tray. Repeat with remaining chicken.
  • Spray the crumbed chicken with olive oil and bake for 20 minutes, flipping halfway.
  • Meanwhile, cook frozen Birds Eye Veggie Mash and peas following packet directions.
  • Serve the chicken nuggets alongside the veggie mash and peas.


TIP: Ensure as much of the moisture is removed from the Mash by firmly pressing in a sieve. Alternatively, place in a clean chux or tea towel, twist and squeeze.
Please note: We do not recommend a low carb eating plan for kids. Peas and breadcrumbs contribute some carbohydrates to this balanced meal.
