"I was looking for a baked " fried " chicken recipe when I found this one. I never thought of coating chicken with oatmeal and since I was looking for a healthy version of fried this certainly fit . I was surprised at how tasty it was! The seasoning blend and the oatmeal gave it a crispy deliciously different taste that we loved"

"the oatmeal turned out chunky on my chicken. Looked ugly but tasted all right. A little bland"

"This was ok. It was a nice alternative to cornflake breading, because I rarely have cornflakes in the house. I think I would add more seasoning next time."
