  • 500g chicken thighs
  • 150ml natural yogurt
  • 3 tbsp tikka masala curry paste
  • 100g breadcrumbs
  • 50g crispy onions
  • spray oil
  • 100g mayonnaise
  • 1 lime, zested and cut into wedges to serve



    The same shape, but smaller than…

  • 2 tbsp mango chutney


  1. Cut the chicken thighs into nugget sized pieces then put in a bowl with the yogurt and curry paste. Cover and leave in the fridge to marinate for 2 hrs.

  2. Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. In a baking dish mix together the breadcrumbs and dried onions. Turn the marinated chicken pieces in the breadcrumb mix then put on a baking tray and spray each nugget with the oil (this will help them to get crispy). Roast for 25 mins.

  3. Meanwhile mix the mayonnaise with the lime zest and swirl in the mango chutney. Serve the nuggets with the mayo and lime wedges for squeezing.

Really nice! Ate them in tortilla wraps with some crunchy lettuce, really enjoyed and the kids enjoyed them too! Will definitely become a family favourite. Took the recommendation below and mixed the mango chutney with creme fraiche instead of mayo.

I’ve now made this twice. I use chicken breasts and I’m quite generous with the crispy onions. SO TASTY. For the dressing I just stir mango chutney into creme fraiche. Serve along with mixed salad. So pleased that I found this recipe.
