So what exactly are chicken Goujons?

Chicken fingers, also known as chicken tenders, chicken goujons, chicken strips, tendies or chicken fillets, are chicken meat prepared from the pectoralis minor muscles of the animal.

These strips of white meat are located on either side of the breastbone, under the breast meat. Wikipedia

  1. Oh yum! Perfect dinner for all. Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays x

    1. my pleasure – look forward to next Tuesday 😉 #tastytuesdays Cx

  2. Great easy recipe. I’ve slightly changed mine by mixing the garlic into the egg (put garlic through press and squeeze into egg) then add salt and pepper. I put chicken in garlic egg mixture till ready to use (sometimes overnight). Then I take chicken out the egg mix, dip in the breadcrumbs etc and put in oven. It’s only my tip but works for me. Such an easy healthy recipe and kids love it 👏.
