    • 500g of chicken breast mince
    • ¼ cup of uncooked quinoa
    • ½ cup of water
    • 1 zucchini
    • ½ cup of breadcrumbs
    • 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley
    • ½ cup of very finely grated parmesan cheese – use the finest setting on your grater.
    • Salt and pepper


    1. Use the finest setting of your grater to grate the cheese and place into a small bowl.
    2. Chop the parsley finely and place it along with the bread crumbs into the bowl with the cheese. Set aside until needed.
    3. Place the water and quinoa into a small saucepan and cook over a medium heat until all the water has absorbed and the quinoa is light and fluffy. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
    4. Grate the zucchini into a large bowl before adding the chicken breast mince and the cooked quinoa which has been cooled slightly.  Using a large spoon to mix together all the ingredients until they are combined.
    5. Use another metal spoon to scoop the chicken mixture and roll into balls with your hands.
    6. Place the chicken balls into the bowl with the breadcrumb mixture and lightly toss to cover the entire ball.
    7. Place the coated chicken balls onto a large plate and using the palm of your hand, slightly flatten the ball before using the knuckle of your thumb to indent the side – giving you the shape of a ‘traditional’ chicken nugget.
    8. Repeat this process until all the chicken mixture has been used.
    9. Preheat your Kambrook Chef Air Frying Oven to 190 degrees and lightly spray with oil.
    10. Fill the tray of the Chef Air Frying Oven with your Chicken and Zucchini Nuggets and cook for 10 minutes before using a pair of tongs to turn the nuggets and cook for a further 5 minutes or until your nuggets are cooked through. 
    11. Repeat the cooking process until all the Chicken and Zucchini Nuggets has been cooked.
