  3. On a separate plate sprinkle the oat bran, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, chilli and smoked paprika before mixing it together to spread it out on the plate.
  4. Dip a chunk of chicken into the beaten egg, shake off the excess before coating it thoroughly in the oat bran mix and placing on a plate. Repeat the process until all chicken pieces are coated.
