Quick fried chicken and wedges

This is a really great recipe for a fast and tasty mid-week tea that even the grown-ups will love.


1/2 skinless, boneless chicken thigh per toddler

1 medium potato per toddler

2-3 tblsps frozen peas per toddler

1 egg, beaten


Plain flour

Cooking oil

Ketchup (if required!)


1) For the potato wedges: Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Scrub the potatos and cut into quarters. Place on a baking tray and pour over 1-2 table spoons of cooking oil, making sure they are evenly covered. Place in the oven for 40min, turning once half way through cooking time.

2) Meanwhile, cut the chicken thighs in half and beat the egg in a small bowl. Take two side plates and pour breadcrumbs into one and flour into another. Use enough to cover each plate, you can always top up later.

3)Put a large frying pan onto the hob  and heat up a little oil in the pan. Take each piece of chicken in turn, coat in the egg, then the flour, then the breadcrumbs. Fry over a medium heat for around 20-25 min, taking care not to burn the crumb coating. Check that meat is cooked throoughly before serving.

4) Microwave frozen peas as per packet instructions. Serve potato wedges, chicken and peas with as much ketchup as required!
