A very flavorful low-fat recipe! The coating wasn't as moist as "traditional" coating, but we all enjoyed it. Even the kids! The chicken itself was very moist though. I took the advice of the previous reviewer and put the oats and spices in my mini chopper/food processor. I think that was an excellent idea. A few of us used additional Dijon mustard as we ate it, but some ate it "as is". I served it with Extra Special Steamed Green Beans and long grain wild rice. It was like a fancy restaurant meal without the price tag or calorie overload!! Thanks for sharing!
Great recipe. The only change I would make is whirl the oats in the blender to make them a little smaller.
