  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6.
  2. Mix together the breadcrumbs, paprika, herbs and seasoning.
  3. Dip the chicken first in the egg and then coat in the breadcrumb mixture. Place on a large greased baking tray. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cooked throughout. Pierce a thicker piece of the meat to ensure juices are running clear and it is completely cooked.
  4. Serve in toasted pitta bread with tomato salsa and salad.

Cook’s tip Replace the paprika with mild chilli powder for a hot variation or replace the chicken with white fish such as cod or haddock.
