At first this was just an experiment, but it turned into a really great idea! Who would have thought that bran flakes could turn something so crispy and delicious, coating those tender chicken fillets like it was born to do so! Using oat flour as a first coating worked just as well as using regular flour and it’s definitely the healthier option! Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce or even in a wrap with salad. Treat them as your regular chicken goujons, just a little more healthy and with a little extra crunch. I promise that they are super tasty!
Ingredients For 2 Large chicken breasts
- 100g oat flour
- 150g bran flakes
- 2 eggs
- 1tsp thyme
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 heaped tsp garlic salt
- zest of 1 lemon
- salt and pepper
- Preheat the oven to gas mark 4/180°C/350°F.
- Use a blender to blitz up the bran flakes. Do not over blitz them as you do not want it too fine.
- Tip the oat flour into a bowl and mix in well with the thyme, oregano, garlic salt, lemon zest with a little salt with a generous amount of pepper.
- Slice your chicken into bite size goujons ready to be coated.
- Line up your bowls from left to right you should have the oat flour in one bowl, followed by the beaten egg in another bowl and then the bran flakes in a large bowl.
- Dip each chicken goujon in the flour, then egg, followed by the bran flakes. Then for a little extra flavour, dust once more in the flour and then put on a plate. Continue to do the same until all of your chicken goujon’s are well coated.
- Line a tray with baking paper and spread a thin layer of oil on it. Put each chicken goujon on the tray, making sure they do not touch each other. If you have the spray oil, then lightly spray each one. If not then brush a little oil on each on making sure they are evenly coated.
- Put in the oven for 20 minutes until cooked through.
- Enjoy on their own, with salad or in a wrap!
