Chicken goujons with wholemeal pitta and tomato salsa

The kids loved this meal and were fighting over seconds. I must make a note of the meals that they really enjoy sometime. I found the recipe on Tesco recipes while doing my on line shop the other evening. It was a really simple meal to make, and healthy too as the chicken is baked, not fried. Of course by the time you have ladened it with mayonnaise, as the children do, it isn't quite so low in calories.

Serves 4
125g granary breadcrumbs (I used paxo golden breadcrumbs)
2tsp paprika
1tsp dried mixed herbs
400g chicken breast, cut into strips (skinless)
1 medium egg, beaten
8 wholemeal pitta breads, toasted
211g fresh tomato salsa
salad, to serve

Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Mix together the breadcrumbs, paprika, herbs and seasoning.
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.
Serve in toasted pitta bread with tomato salsa and salad.
