Gluten Free Breaded Chicken using Whole Grain Crackers

Image: Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breasts

Gluten free breaded chicken is no different than regular chicken. I usually use homemade gluten free seasoned bread crumbs, however, this time I wanted something more nutritious. I chose to use Van’s gluten free crackers. They come in several flavors and they’re all whole grain. I used their Lots of Everything flavored crackers. I used chicken breasts for this recipe, however, you can do the same thing with chicken tenders. Meanwhile, they turned out moist and delicious. Enjoy!

If you like a little crunch and a nutty flavor in your gluten free whole grain bread, this recipe for toasted hemp seeds will be a perfect fit for you. It’s very easy to do and takes very little time. You can toast any seeds, but hemp seeds in particular need to be toasted, as they are hard seeds. Other seeds such as sesame seeds don’t need to be toasted. You can use toasted hemp seeds not only on the tops of your bread, but inside, as well. Now, get to baking some gluten free bread!

The different types of seeds to use in your gluten free bread include hemp, flax, poppy, sesame, sunflower, and pumpkin. Continue reading “Toasted Hemp Seeds Recipe for Bread and Salads”

Creamy Saucy Gluten Free Black Bean Chicken Chili

I have to say, this is the best chili I have ever eaten! It reminds me of ham and beans, made with fresh ham. It is very flavorful, and is made without chili powder and without tomatoes. Due to the amount of cumin it is on the mild spicy side. To make it kid-friendly, cut back on the cumin, and add additional salt. You can easily make this black bean chicken chili organic by using all organic produce and free-range or organic chicken. Continue reading “Creamy Saucy Gluten Free Black Bean Chicken Chili”

Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup

Though gluten free chicken noodle soup may be made with your favorite ready-made pasta, I chose to use my new homemade gluten free egg noodles (tastes more like pasta) in this recipe. Whether you’re down for the count due to a winter cold, or you just wish to warm up a bit, this soup has a ample flavor, and you’ll love the texture of the noodles. There are a couple of things that prompted this recipe creation. The texture of the noodles reminds me of Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup, which caused my cravings. The second thing, was that I need a gluten free chicken soup recipe to link to in my upcoming gluten free matzo ball soup recipe. Soup is great just about any time: winter, spring and fall. I hope you enjoy it! Continue reading “Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup”

Gluten Free Pita Bread

Over a year ago I tried to make gluten free pita bread, but was under the misconception that rising them prior to rolling would be fruitless. Now that I’ve experimented more, I know this not to be the case. When someone recently asked me for a yeast-free pita bread recipe, it was a reminder that I needed to give them another go. And I’m absolutely thrilled how they turned out. I don’t know if it’s because it’s been about 10 years since I’ve had one or not, but they taste like gluten pita bread to me! This recipe was adapted from its gluten cousin Pita Bread Recipe on You can serve this pita bread with hummus dip, or use it as substitute for gluten free bread, as I did in one of the images below, with chicken salad. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Pita Bread”

Egg Yolk Substitute

For my egg-free allergic friends, as well as the dairy-intolerant, I tried quite a few versions of vegan egg yolk substitute recipes today, none of which tasted like egg yolk to me. So, I gotta thinkin’…”What does egg yolk taste like?” I had some in the frig, and dipped my finger in it. It tastes like melted butter with a little salt. That was the easy part. I knew a little shortening and salt would create the flavor, but how was I going to make the right color. Well, adding some carrot juice (I just pureed some carrots with a little water in my small food processor, and strained it to make my own juice), makes it orange, but how was I going to make it yellow.
