Home made fish (or chicken) fingers

These are a firm favourite of ours and one of the few ways that the Boy will eat fish without a fuss! The fish can be substituted for chicken using the same recipe and timings, just ensure that the pieces are relatively thin so that they cook through.



Any white fish fillet- hake is cheap and perfect for this (I use two fillets to serve three children)

1 egg, beaten

Cereal bowl of corn flakes, crushed

2 table spoons of plain flour on a plate

Large knob of butter, melted



  • Cut the fish into finger sized pieces
  • Dry them well on kitchen paper
  • Dip the pieces into flour, then beaten egg, then crushed cornflakes, ensuring each coating completely covers the previous
  • Tip: Use one hand for wet and one for dry, to save a stodgy mess!
  • Place on a baking tray
  • Drizzle with melted butter and bake at 180C (fan) for 10mins, turning half way through.
  • Serve with steamed veg- mine love mini corn on the cob, then it’s all finger-food!
