A healthier and oil-free alternative to chicken nuggets


•  Preheat oven to 375oC and cover a baking pan with cooking spray.

•  Whisk all the ingredients (except the corn flour mixture) together in a bowl and add the chicken pieces to the mixture.

•  Prepare the corn flour by mixing it with water.

•  Coat the chicken with corn flour and transfer it onto a large pan, drizzled with very little oil. Sauté the chicken at medium-heat for about four minutes, or until it becomes brown in colour.

•  Once fried, transfer the chicken to a baking dish and bake it for about 20 to 25 minutes, until it is cooked through.

•  Garnish the shots with sesame seeds and serve it alongside a dollop of coleslaw.

Quick and easy coleslaw

There is nothing like a soothing bowl of coleslaw on a warm summer’s day. If you’re fond of your veggies, this recipe is definitely for you!



•  Mayonnaise 4 tbsp

•  Lemon juice 2 tbsp

•  Dijon mustard 1 tsp

•  White cabbage (trimmed and shredded) ½1

•  Small onion (peeled and chopped finely) 1

•  Carrots (peeled and grated) 4

•  Salt to taste

•  Freshly ground black pepper to taste


•  Prepare the coleslaw mix by combining the mayonnaise, lemon juice and Dijon mustard in a large serving bowl.

•  Season the mix with salt and pepper as desired, and mix thoroughly.

•  Add the cabbage, onion and carrots into the bowl and fold them in.

•  Keep stirring the ingredients for a bit to ensure the vegetables are coated in the mix completely.

•  Allow the coleslaw to chill in the fridge for about two to three hours before serving.

Note: You can also add roasted nuts, celery, apples, potatoes and other ingredients to the coleslaw if you wish.
