    A previous comment about Oats containing gluten isn't quite accurate. Competent research has proven that oats do not contain gluten. However, it is essential to obtain pure uncontaminated oats that have not picked up traces of wheat or rye during harvesting, storage, shipping or processing. There are multiple sources of tested, pure gluten-free oats. These should make this recipe perfectly safe.

    This recipe looks tasty, BUT it is not gluten free because it contains oats. Gluten free would be no wheat, rye, oats, or barley. I just thought i'd point that out to anyone who is trying to follow a gluten free diet do to an intolerance or celiac disease. Maybe the recipe should be renamed wheat free breaded chicken. Thanks:)

    Oats do not naturally contain gluten. It is the cross-contamination of planting cycles where fields are planted with wheat one year and then oats the next year. There are several companies that provide certified gluten free oats. As a gluten free baker, I would simply reach for my Gluten Free Oats to make this recipe.

    Only about 0.6% of the celiac population have a sensitivity to oats, and that is not because of the protein gluten but a protein called avenin (see They are in fact gluten-free. The bigger issue has been contamination with wheat since harvest is done by the same equipment as wheat. There are plenty of good gluten-free oat brands available now. The experts do recommend that you not try oats for the first year to minimize the chances of becoming sensitive to the avenin. ( And this recipe looks good!

    Bob's Red Mill now sells gluten free oats. Always before they were milled cut in the same mill as flour, until now. Bob's Red Mill now separates the oat process in their own mill so that they are not contaminated. Wonderful news for Celiacs.
