Made this Wed night. This recipe is the best way to get Ryan to eat all of his broccoli - I have also used Parmesan as a substitute to Asiago and it's pretty much the same taste; the Parmesan is a little sharper. This is also my favourite way to cook broccoli.
Ease: 3.5/5 for chicken. Fiddly with the dipping and you both fry and oven bake the chicken.
4.5/5 for broccoli (5/5 if you use shredded parmesan.) Apart from grating the cheese you just toss the broccoli in the oven and then toss it in the cheese when you take it out.
Taste: 3/5 for the chicken. Needs more flavour and seasoning. Otherwise a tender chicken nugget. Great smothered in sauce.
5/5 for broccoli. Would add less salt before roasting as cheese is quite salty. But otherwise a great earthy taste.
Would I make again: Yes for the broccoli. Not sure about the chicken nuggets - maybe when I have kids.
