¼ tsp ground paprika

¼ dried mixed herbs


  • Preheat oven to 1800c
  • Mix the flour with the salt & pepper then use it to coat the chicken
  • Mix a pinch of salt with all the other ingredients, except the egg and oil
  • Dip the chicken strips in the egg then coat in the oat mixture

  • Bake in the oven for 15-20mins until cooked through

I came up with this recipe for oaty baked chicken when I had a craving for something that resembled fried chicken, by frying first it gives the coating a crispier texture. If you want a thicker coating you could repeat step 4 but you may need to double the ingredients. These chicken strips are perfect with my spicy veggie stew as seen in the photo, or with sweet potato wedges and my refined sugar free ketchup-style sauce.
