1 tsp dried mixed herbs

400g chicken fillets, cut into strips (skinless)

1 medium egg, beaten

8 wholemeal pitta breads, toasted

Salad leaves, to serve

Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas mark 6.

Line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper and set aside.

Mix together the breadcrumbs, paprika, herbs and seasoning.

Dip the chicken first in the egg and then coat in the breadcrumbs.
