Oatmeal crusted chicken

Oatmeal is becoming a very versatile ingredient and not just being relegated as boring, healthy breakfast meal. Here is one case where I used it as a coating like breadcrumb. Oatmeal is rich in fiber and healthy, so in keeping that theme, I substituted sugar free yogurt for eggs to coat the oatmeal. The chicken comes out crispy and extra healthy using this combination and goes great with air fryer taro chips.



  • 4 oz chicken (diced or chopped)
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic power
  • Some salt
  • Some black pepper
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 1 tbsp sugar free yogurt


  • Marinate – In a bowl, combine soy sauce, garlic, salt, black pepper, yogurt and chicken and marinate for 30 minutes.
  • Cook oatmeal – Using pan, cook oatmeal with olive oil until oatmeal turns brown.
  • Coating – Take marinated chicken and coat with oatmeal
  • Air fryer – Place chicken into air fryer and cook at 360F for 15 minutes. Then flip the chicken and cook at 390F and cook for 5 more minutes.
  • Serve – Crispy chicken is ready to serve with crispy taro chips. Oatmeal fried chicken goes great with condiment of your choice.
