How to use up leftover oatmeal

  • Crumbed chicken
    Bash 2 chicken breasts between 2 pieces of baking paper with a rolling pin until 1cm thick. Put 50g seasoned plain flour, 2 beaten eggs and 75g oatmeal into 3 separate bowls. Dip the chicken into the flour, then the egg, then the oatmeal. Fry in olive oil on both sides until crisp and cooked.
  • Oaty smoothie
    Add 2 tbsp oatmeal to your smoothie. For a less grainy result, whizz the oatmeal in a food processor before blending with your smoothie ingredients. Oatmeal works particularly well in banana smoothies.
