Chicken Oat Flakes Soup

Chicken Oat Flakes Soup

For a long time I have been planning this classic chicken soup recipe with a wonderful little addition - oat flakes. Yes, you can use oat not only in desserts and you'll be surprised by the taste and texture of this wonderful soup!

I recommend using large oats. Boiled, they have a very good texture, which adds a lot to the quality and taste of the soup. The same way you can improvise a meatless soup, if you use some lentil or chickpea for extra protein and nutrients.


Chicken meat
500 g
I used the chicken carcass for the soup and the meat (thighs, breast, chicken) for a different meal
Celery root
100 g
1 piece
White onion
2 pieces
Laurel leaves
1 piece
1 piece
1 piece
1 piece
I used frozen tomatoes, diced in the season and kept in the freezer.
Oat flakes
5 tbsp
larger flakes
Chopped parsley
2 tbsp
1 tsp
to taste

Step by step

Step 1

First of all, prepare the meat for the soup - I sliced a whole chicken, I used the meaty pieces for a meal and the bone carcass for the soup.

Place the chicken, 1 small celery root, 1 parsley root and 1 whole onion in the pot.

Instead of using the classic pot, I placed the ingredients straight in the multicooker pot.

Pour enough water to cover all the ingredients completely and turn on the heat.

Select the "Soup" mode on the multicooker.

Step 5

And let the soup simmer for 1-2 hours, until the meat is soft.

I was telling you that I use the multicooker to make soup especially when I'm busy and I don't have time to watch the cooking. I set the device to 2 hours, close the lid and let it do its job. Even if I don't get home within the 2 hours, it shuts itself down and keeps the chicken soup warm.

While the soup is cooking, prepare 1 potato, 1 onion, 1 carrot and 1 tomato and cut into small cubes.
