Spiced Flaxseed Schnitzel Bites

I've used chicken thighs in this recipe because I find they don;t dry out as easily as breast meat, but you can use 1 breast in this recipe if you prefer. In terms of spices, I made up a mixture of paprika, chilli, ginger and cumin in mine, but any dried, ground spice mix would work here as well; Chinese five spice, Middle Eastern Zataar, Sichuan salt and pepper or a simple Italian dried herb mix. to find out more about flaxseed go here.
