Crunchy Baked Chicken Cheese Balls with Oats

I used to have one picky eater and one who's willing to try everything we feed her. But now the littest who used to eat everything is beginning to pick on her food too. When either my hub or me have got extra time in the kitchen, we like to experiment with new recipes and ways to make our meal more interesting for the girls. So I took the opportunity to experiment with oats and made an interesting discovery!

These crunchy baked chicken cheese balls with oats was a hit with both my girls! And the best part is that they are consuming healthy oats at the same time. I'm a happy mum and this recipe is a keeper in my books. And for the record, all the amount stated in my recipe list below are based on estimates ok, because when I cook, I don't use any form of measurement but my own feel. I call it the feeliment. coughs

After this successful introduction of oatmeal to my girls, I am going to experiment with more dishes just so the family can get a little bit of nutrients for better heart and better source of fiber.
