I was wondering about other's experiences with the gluten-free menu at PeiWei, which is owned by PF Chang's and has many of the same menu items. My 8 year old has celiac disease, and when we go to PeiWei, we order Sweet and Sour Chicken with rice off of the gluten-free menu. Sometimes we get it with what the manager told me was a gluten-free potato starch batter, and sometimes we get chicken with no batter which has been fried in vegetable broth. One manager told me that the potato starch battered chicken is not in a dedicated fryer, however, it is safer (he says) than frying it with the vegetable broth which contains some gluten. My son has not been sick yet, but I always wonder if he will get sick on one of these visits. My question is, what have you all been ordering and have you had any similar experiences? Thanks!

My one experience with the oven produced the same results...it was raw in the middle. I have a Welbilt (sp?) bread machine that makes 1 to 1 1/2 pound loaves. I have been buying the Gluten Free Pantry Favorite Sandwich Breadmix. Since my machine makes smaller loaves, I half the recipe. I use milk instead of water, and I also make sure the egg and milk are at room temperature. Although it says to use the medium setting, I use the light setting. The cycle is 2 hours and 45 minutes, but I take it out after about 2 1/2 hours and it comes out great! This is for my 7 year old boy, and he likes it and takes a sandwich to school with it everyday. Maybe your machine makes smaller loaves and you are putting too much mix in? I don't know, just a thought! Good Luck!!
Thanks, celiac3270. I sent them an email on their website. I predict that the reply won't be what I wanted to hear, but I'll pass on any info I get. I guess I will have to create my own chicken tenders at home!
I just received a flyer for Popeye's Naked Chicken with only 2 grams of carbs. They marinate, season, and deep fry the chicken with no breading. Has anyone tried this and is it gluten-free? My seven year old wants to have occasional chicken tenders, and this would be a wonderful alternative! Thanks for any help!
The info about the kneading I got from the Gluten Free Pantry website. It did mention changing the texture of the gluten-free bread if it is kneaded too much. It suggested cutting out extra kneading cycles on your bread machine if possible. I found this at http://gluten free.com/resources.htm. There it has tips on making your gluten-free bread. Just thought I would pass this along!
Hi there....the Gluten Free Pantry's Favorite Sandwich Bread is the one we use. We make it in a bread maker that makes 1 lb loaves, so we half the recipe. That way it doesn't have to stay fresh for so long. I am going to try Manna from Anna, too. I am also going to give the oven a try, since the extra kneading of the bread machine may be a problem. gluten-free Pantry Breadmix can be found at Whole Foods or onling at gluten free.com.
My seven year old son just got diagnosed with celiac disease. We are trying to find the best way to make bread and keep it fresh. We have a Welbilt breadmaker that makes a 1 lb loaf of bread, but it doesn't seem to stay fresh long enough. I have heard that the Zojirushi is the best machine for gluten-free. Does this 2 lb loaf stay fresh? I'm not sure I want to freeze bread because it never seems be fresh once frozen. Any comments would be greatly appreciated. I will spend the $200 on this bread maker if it is worth it!! Thanks!
