If you're even the slightest bit interested in looking good and performing well, chances are that chicken is a staple in your day. Heck, maybe even twice per day! And for good reason: This great source of protein is very low in fat and rich in B vitamins, and it tends to be very friendly on the wallet.

Oat Crusted Chicken with Lemon Sauce

The problem, however, is that there seem to be only so many ways to prepare chicken, and eating the same baked chicken—despite a change of seasonings—over and over can suck the fun out of any diet.

Luckily for you, Chef Spike Mendelsohn blends a variety of strong spices and earthy flavors to deliver a wholly unique, out-of-this-world take on chicken: Oat-crusted chicken with a lemon yogurt sauce! The robust taste of the textured chicken is sure to break up the monotony of your usual bird. As for the yogurt dipping sauce...well, I'll let you try it and see for yourself just how creamy-good it really is!

This recipe is delicious on its own, but it also pairs well atop a bed of mixed greens and sliced veggies.
