About this recipe: These are a little spicy - if serving to young kids, you can leave out the dried crushed chillies and black pepper. The wheatgerm makes a nice crunchy coating.

  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) water
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets, cut into bite size pieces
  • small handful chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 pinch dried crushed chillies
  • 60g dried breadcrumbs, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 60g wheatgerm
