Crunchy on the outside, moist and juicy on the inside, this Quaker® Granola Crusted Raspberry Pomegranate Chicken is easy to make and packed with flavor!
I have said it before and I will say it again, chicken is the cheapest and easiest protein, so we make it a lot, but we certainly don’t like it to be boring, and this flavorful chicken is anything but boring!!!
Now why is this chicken so easy to make? Because to get this amazing crunchy crust I use the wholesome Quaker® Oats and Honey Granola.
Now I love this granola for many things. I take it in the car with me for when my family gets hungry while out running errands. I mix it into fruit and yogurt for a hefty snack, and I even roll chocolate dipped bananas in it. But this is probably my favorite way to use it, as it gives my chicken such a fantastic and flavorful crunch.
I just pop it in my food processor, and give it a few pulses to break it down a little, and use it to coat the outside. It is sweet, crunchy, and so darn good!
Or, you can do what I highly recommend and smother it in a Raspberry Pomegranate Sauce. Both the chicken and the sauce are really easy to make, and I got all the ingredients for them at Walmart while I was picking up the Quaker® Granola.
Let’s talk about this sauce for a minute. It is sugar free, dairy free, and packed with flavor. But it is also creamy, sweet, and has some tang thanks to the raspberries and pomegranates. and perfectly compliments the oats and honey brought to the table by the Quaker® granola.

In addition to the granola Quaker® offers a line of wholesome cereals that fit seamlessly into your lifestyle and can be used to amp up chicken, be eaten as breakfast, or made into cereal bars or snacks. Really the sky is the limit, so how would you use Quaker® Real Medleys®, Quaker® Oatmeal Squares, Quaker® Simply Granola, or Quaker® Life?
We love fish crusted with nuts and Quaker® Life cereal. And I am thinking some cereal breakfast bars might be a good idea for after the holiday break!
