Savoury Oats With Chicken Floss

I usually have my oats sweet, with milk and sugar or in cookies, but never in my life I had them savoury. I was lamenting how boring it is eating oats the same way albeit with different toppings ie fruits, raisins, dried fruits, nuts etc. Hence, my friend suggested to cook them in stocks, add various toppings like deep fried ikan bilis (anchovies), onion oil, chicken bits, meat floss yada yada yada... but I never got round to make them as he recommended.

One night, I was home alone and was too lazy to go out to get some dinner, I rummaged thru my larder and found a handful of quick cooking oats (not the instant type), so I decided to use them for my dinner.

Dumped the oats in a saucepan with enough water and let it come to a gentle boil. Since I don't use stock cubes at home, I poured in some oyster sauce to taste. Tossed in lots of black pepper and some onion oil. Dished up and served with chicken floss. Here was the result...

Savoury Oats With Chicken Floss

I'm surprised this bowl of oats did tasted good. The onion oil brought the oats to another level as it impart a very nice fragrant to it and went well with the oyster sauce flavour. Since then I've used Marmite/Bovril as flavouring as well. So if you think oats is boring, try them this way ;-)

If not mistaken, this Fung Wong bakery used to have this small eatery place at Midvalley, opposite the KFC and I did try their porridge with chicken floss. Kinda nice combination cos am a fan of chicken floss.

This looks like great comfort food! I've only had savoury oats made with chicken soup. Yours looks more fun!

babe, u can use the oats just like porridge. My mum cooks savoury ones all the time and she adds shredded chicken, century eggs and etc to make it a more substantial breakfast.
