Just follow any chicken strip recipe found on the internet and convert.  I use gluten-free breadcrumbs to coat (season with your favorites:  spicy or not) and water/soymilk to dip prior to coating.  You can use egg too to help bind the crumbs.  Some recipes use butter to dip but that adds calories.  Bake in a shallow pan at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes (juices will run clear).  

 

You can buy crumbs or make them from the ends of your gluten-free bread.  Grind them in the food processor or smash in a sealed baggie.

Some people like to use corn or rice chex for the coating.  Or gluten-free pretzels.

I make chicken nuggets in my Acti-Fry for my kids. The coating is in a baggie and I keep it in the freezer using it a couple of times.

 

The coating:

1c tapioca flour

1c brown rice or al purpose gluten-free flour

1/2c flax and chia meal

3/4 tsp paprika

1 tsp pepper

3 tsp seasoning salt

3/4 tsp garlic

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp mustard

 

I cut up about 4 chicken breasts, dip them in coconut milk and throw them in the bag. Shake the bag and place the coated chicken in the actifry.  I add about 3 Tbs oil (sesame or olive) and cook about 25-28 minutes. Crispy and the boys like them.

I use gluten-free muti-pup. flour, mix in my seasonings, very fine salt (like popcorn salt) and mix well.  I then prepare a milk and egg dip/wash with regular milk and eggs.  I dip the fresh chicken breast strips into the milk and egg dip and place into the flour mix.  After breading, I fry the strips in a skillet with margarine for 2 to 3 minutes or until they start to turn golden in color.  I then place all the strips on a cookie sheet and finish them in the oven at 350 degrees.

i did them once using honey and mustard mixed together for the 'glue' and crushed up honey nut cornflakes (gluten-free i think envirokids brand?) for the breading.  dip in 'glue', roll in cornflakes put on cookie sheet (i use parchment) spray with olive oil - bake til chicken is done (i think 20 min @ 350 but depends on how thick your strips are)  

 

i did that for breading chicken breasts stuffed with ham & cheese and baking, too, and turned out tasty.

I use potato chips.  All different flavors work well.  It can be really quick because you don't need to add other spices. (but I add parmesan cheese and we can't use eggs to make it stick to the chicken.  the oils from the chips crisps the coating nicely.)

Do you know which ingredient gives the nuggets their crunchiness/crispiness? I have been using parm cheese as my breading but no crunch. Don't want to use all the ingredients in your recipe but need to pick one that will add crunchiness.

I hate to say it, but I think it is the frying that gives it crunchiness. I cook it in an Actifry machine and use about 3 Tbs of olive oil for 4 chicken breasts.

 

I've read that some cereals, or even ground up potato chips can give a crunchy coating when baked.

I basically said this same thing on the chicken nugget thread, but crushed up potato chips are great on meat and veggies.  For meat that I don't want the coating falling off of, I use 1/3 parmesean, 1/3 crushed up chips, 1/3 corn meal, pulsed in the food processor until the chips aren't totally jagged.  If you bake them raised on a grate in the pan, the bottoms will not get soggy. Also if you have a convection oven (I got mine by accident yay for delivery mixups!) cook them with convection on and it will help take the moisture off the surface and get a crispy outside.

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
