Chicken is one of my favorite foods yet plain chicken by itself doesn’t taste very good. So how do you make great tasting chicken that is still gluten free? It can be a bit challenging since soy sauce and most barbeque sauces as well as many other sauces have gluten in them. Here are five of my favorite gluten free chicken recipes. As a bonus they are dairy free as well since I have dairy allergies and so do many other people.
1. Lemon pepper chicken. To make this recipe you can either saute the chicken in olive oil which is my favorite way or you can also cook it in a slow cooker. If you use the slow cooker then you will need to slow cook it in water and you can add some olive oil later after the chicken is cooked. Once the chicken is about three-fourths cooked, then I add some lemon pepper spice mix which you can get at most grocery stores. It is a mixture of dried lemon rind and black pepper. You can also add some lemon juice or a few drops of lemon essential oil for a stronger lemon taste. That is is. I usually also cook it with either potatoes or rice and some green vegetables.
2. Gluten free soy sauce chicken. I get gluten free soy sauce from vitacost.com I’m sure other places have it too. It’s a brand called Sammy J. I saute or slow cook the chicken with this sauce and vegetables just like you would with regular soy sauce.
3. Chicken with rice vinegar. This is not my favorite but sometimes I do enjoy it. I saute the chicken just like in the other recipes but with a small amount of rice vinegar. I also add some spices like parsley or paprika.
4. Cheyenne pepper chicken. I really like this. It’s hot though and some people don’t like it. I saute chicken with some olive oil and vegetables and then after the chicken is cooked almost all the way through but not quite, I sprinkle cheyenne pepper on it. It’s spicy and you have to be careful not to use too much, but cheyenne is amazing for colds and clearing sinuses so it’s healthy for you.
5. Chicken with tomatoes. This makes a great alternative to tomato based sauces. I saute the chicken just like above but I add some canned or fresh tomatoes to it at the very beginning before the chicken is cooked. Like the other gluten free chicken recipes I also use some olive oil and sometimes some parsley as well.
