Parmesan and Lemon Baked Chicken Goujons
with Salsa Verde Dipping Sauce

Salsa Verde Dipping Sauce:
Large handful of fresh parsley leaves
Large handful of fresh basil leaves
Small handful watercress or rocket
2 anchovy fillets
4-5 leaves fresh tarragon
1 tablespoon capers
1 small green capsicum
1 long green chilli
Juice & zest 1 small lime
3 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/3 cup light olive oil
¼ cup pine nuts
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 x 200g free-range chicken breasts
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg

For the breaded coating:
5 x (approx. 40g ea.) slices of multigrain bread
Zest 2 lemons
50g Parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Extra lemon wedges to serve

Pre-heat oven to 180˚C fan forced. Line two baking trays with non-stick parchment. Set aside.

To make the Salsa Verde add all the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and whizz until almost smooth, you want it still to have bit of texture. Transfer to a serving bowl and chill in the fridge until required.

Remove any excess skin from the chicken breasts and cut into bite-sized strips (about 2cm thick x 10cm or so long, and you’ll probably get about 10 per breast).

Place buttermilk and egg in a bowl and whisk. Set aside.

To make the coating, whizz bread slices in a food processor into breadcrumbs, add the lemon zest, grated Parmesan and season with a pinch of salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper. Whizz once more to combine. Turn out into a medium-sized mixing bowl.

Coat each chicken strip in the buttermilk then toss liberally in the breadcrumb mixture. Place chicken pieces onto the pre-lined baking sheets, bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and coating if golden and crunchy.

Serve goujons warm with the Salsa Verde

• 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
• 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed
• 2 large eggs, room temperature
• 1 teaspoon vanilla

1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners.
2) In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and sea salt together and set aside.
3) In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar on medium-high until the batter begins to appear fluffy.
4) Add eggs, one at a time, until each is well incorporated into the mixture. Then add the vanilla.
5) In three batches, add the flour and alternate adding the buttermilk, making sure that each previous batch is incorporated before adding the next.
6) Fill each muffin tin about half way with batter and bake for 23-25 minutes. Allow cupcakes to cool completely on a wire rack before the next step.

Salted Caramel Filling
