Cook time: 40 minutes
Makes: 4 Adult portions

For the Chips:
4-5 floury potatos (Maris Pipers)
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp smoked paprika
For the Fingers:
4 slices of wholemeal bread
50g Parmesan cheese, grated
4 skinless chicken breasts, sliced
60g plain flour
2 eggs, whisked

To make the chicken fingers:
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Peel the potatoes and chop into chips
  2. In a large bowl, mix the olive oil and paprika. Toss in the potatoes and mix until all of the chips are coated.
  3. Use a food processor to blend the bread and Parmesan cheese into breadcrumbs.
  4. Place the chicken, flour, eggs, and breadcrumb mixture into separate bowls. Place the bowls in a line.
  5. Dip the chicken into the flour, followed by the egg, followed by the breadcrumbs. Place them on a roasting tray. (Get your children to take charge of this step for some fun in the kitchen).
  6. Add the chips to the tray, making sure to spread them out (or use a second tray if needed). Bake for about 20 minutes. Turn the chicken and chips half way, to cook evenly. 
  7. Offer to your baby as a finger food.
