For the chicken fingers

Cooking spray
560g boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut across into 1-cm pieces
120ml low-fat buttermilk
115g whole-grain corn cereal (recommended: Corn Chex or cornflakes)
1/4 tsp salt
Freshly ground pepper
Honey-mustard sauce, recipe follows

For the honey-mustard sauce

110g Dijon mustard
60g honey
1 tbsp mayonnaise
Preheat oven to 200°C/ gas mark 6. Combine the chicken and buttermilk in a shallow dish. Cover and chill for 15 mins.

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Put the cereal in a sealed plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Transfer the crumbs to a shallow dish. Season the chicken with the salt and a few grinds of pepper. Dip each piece of chicken in the cereal to fully coat and arrange on the baking sheet. Bake until cooked through, about 8 mins. Leave the chicken on the baking sheet to cool slightly. It will become crispier.

Serve with the mustard sauce.

For the honey mustard sauce: In a small bowl, stir together the mustard and mayonnaise until smooth. Stir in the honey.
