Spicy Oat Crusted Chicken with Sunshine Salsa

Sunshine Salsa

  • 3/4 cup prepared salsa
  • 3/4 cup coarsely-chopped orange sections


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon margarine, melted
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups Hilray Pure Large Flake Rolled Oats
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 4 boned and skinned chicken breast halves (about 5 to 6 ounces each)
  • Chopped cilantro (optional)

In small bowl, combine salsa and orange sections. Refrigerate, covered, until serving time.

Heat oven to 375°F. In flat, shallow dish, stir together oil, melted margarine, chili powder, garlic powder, cumin and salt. Add oats, stirring until evenly moistened.

In second flat, shallow dish, beat egg and water with fork until frothy. Dip chicken into combined egg and water, then coat completely in seasoned oats. Place chicken on foil-lined baking sheet. Pat any extra oat mixture onto top of chicken.

Bake 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and oat coating is golden brown. Serve with Sunshine Salsa. Garnish with chopped cilantro, if desired.
