Chicken Or Fish

8 posts in this topic

Uh... what do you want to do with it?

Use it in a salad (green, bean, veggie, etc)?

Part of a main course (enchiladas, soup, pasta, stir-fry, etc)?

On it's own (grilled, baked, panfried, deep-fried, poached, etc)?

Use it for dessert (oh, ok, now I'm being silly... I know it can be done, but I can't think of any common chicken desserts... :-) )

Anyway, check your bookstore or library for cookbooks, and check recipe sites like (previoiusly SOAR) and and even if your brave enough to try their sometimes complicated (but sometimes easy) recipes.

For a REALLY (I mean SUPREMELY) wonderful collection of chicken recipes, check out The Cook's Illustrated Complete Book of Poultry (here is a link). It has an entire chapter devoted to each major way of preparing chicken (*including* stir-fries, curried chicken, chicken and dumplings, chicken pot pie, and recipes that use ground chicken), turkey (including burgers and other applications of ground turkey), Cornish hens, goose, duck, and game birds! They also include a short essay in each chapter describing their recipe testing process and why they chose the cooking methods they did. I plan to see about converting the dumpling and pot pie recipes to be gluten-free, and the other recipes are all pretty easy to convert. I am SO thrilled with this book! You might be able to find it at your local library if you want to look it over before you decide to buy it. It is OUT OF PRINT, so you'll probably need to order it online--but had the best price I saw anywhere, anyway ($22.75 plus shipping).

Another book I use frequently is 1,000 Lowfat Recipes by Terry Blonder Golson. I get the feeling it is out of print, as well. Among many other things, it has a chapter full of delicious fish recipes, and some really yummy vegetable side dishes, too (I am ADDICTED to Roasted Cauliflower with Rosemary and Garlic!). It's true that you would need to ignore the chapters on breads and cookies and convert some of the other recipes, but that's a small price to pay (in my opinion) for a densely-packed book of nutritious and delicious meal ideas!

I hope this information is helpful!

Mango Chicken

4 leg quarters work well.

Marinate skinless, salted chicken pieces in:

1 really ripe mango, mashed

1 lime, juiced

1 tsp. ginger, ground

1/4 onion, chopped

pepper, to taste

2-3 oz.(to cover chicken) Alessi White Balsamic Vinegar

--found at Wal-Mart is a sweet, salad vinegar

Let marinade for at least 10 min.

Next, remove chicken from marinade and brown on all sides in 2 T. oil(I use a large, lidded cast iron skillet). Drain oil. Add mango marinade back in and bake, covered, for 45min.-1hour, or until tender!

Serve with rice cooked with ginger and chopped carrots.

Thanks Sarah. I'm going to make it as soon as aI get my hands on some cauliflower.

I'm doing fine, just getting used to eating gluten-free again. It is such a relief after the last few months! Within one day my intestines were not rumbling violently and the pain was much less. I am looking forward to the results of my biopsy (in three weeks!)

God bless,

Mariann :)

    • Could Lung Inflammation Be Related To Celiac?
      Ive had asthma since I was a child and it was in remission and now that I am gluten free I notice that when I have gluten I have a tight chest and can't breathe.  I am never wheezy though.  When I don't have gluten I am fine.  
    • Fluttering/twitching In Lower Abdomen
      For a solid week I had a flutter, twitching in my left- mid- abdomen that seemed to fit all these descriptions. It was not painful, just unsettling, like a small animal was struggling around in my intestine. I could not feel the motion with my hand and couldn't see it.
      The major condition that corresponded with the timing of this condition was that I was traveling in a car for about 11 days. Therefore, possible causes were nutritional changes because of available food;  food poisoning of some sort; greatly increased automobile exhaust inhalation. I had basically ruled out food poisoning immediately because it seemed so peculiarly muscular and didn't get worse.  It came down to environment and/or nutrition or some kind of organ failure. I did research online and magnesium deficiency was mentioned as a possible cause. About a week into it, I bought some whole-food vitamins (just read fine-print and see it didn't actually have magnesium; it didn't seem to do much). I waited until I was home to use some Magnesium Malate I thought I had, and took that as well as some other vitamins and herbs I sometimes take (I am not a regular vitamin-taker, preferring to get all that from good food choices), and within a day the twitching had all but disappeared. The cure was perhaps getting away from sucking exhaust fumes for 10 hours a day; perhaps it was returning to my normally healthy home diet with lots of vegetables (I have never shied away from or had adverse reactions from wheat that I perceived); perhaps (I think this *may* have been the key, though I only took one tablet) the magnesium supplement; perhaps a diminishment of road stress. I don't know why for sure, but the twitching is gone. I hope this information helps relieve someone else's symptoms and keep the doctor at bay too!
    • 3 months gluten-free still feeling cramps
      Hi folks, I have been a lurker on this site since my diagnosis in the end of Oct of 2015 and I have been doing everything gluten-free since then. I am a 40 year old male and my whole ordeal started in Nov 2014 when I had the sharpest jaw pain that I could ever imagine, I went to the dentists several times and they found nothing and I was taking Advil constantly to numb the pain. They even saw an infection on my gums so they gave me antibiotics but they never did anything to the tooth because they did not know what was wrong so they told me to go to a root canal specialist. Finally I was able to go to a root canal specialist and he found my issue but I needed another round of antibiotics because I still had the infection. I got better in April of 2015 from the pain when my tooth was finally worked on and I was good for a while till June, that is when I started feeling my stomach cramps. the pain initially was not that bad so I naturally ignored it until it got stronger and that is when I went to my GP which referred me to my current gastrologist.  I told my gastrologist my symptoms which were of course stomach pains and cramps but also my sporadic constipation and rashes. He immediately started to suspect that I might have Celiac but he wanted to confirm with an endoscope first. I went in to do endoscopy in late September, both Celiac and H. Pylori came back negative from biopsy but I had gastritis and ulcers. In Late October I did blood work and Celiac came out positive, the doctor said that was weird :-/ .  They did CT scan and found that I have mucosal lesion in the small intestines and partial obstruction which I think it was the antibiotics that made the lesions but the doctors are not sure, I hate when they are unsure about things. The doctor rubbed my shoulder and said what I had was rare, rare how I asked but he was unclear when he talked but it boarded around mean at my age getting Celiac diagnosis. Anyway I have been gluten-free since Oct 2015 and I did tone down my food intake with blander foods to heal the ulcer for several months in which I found that I was semi getting better but not quite and so I decided to really tone it down this past month eating nothing but rice and chicken for lunch and dinner and eggs in the AM but I still feel some cramping. The cramping is better than it was before but now it seems like it spread from my stomach to my right mid abdomen, I plan on seeing the doctor again soon but I am asking has anyone experienced this before? I hear stories of people going gluten free then in 2 weeks they are better and I looked at the stats and 90% of the people that go gluten-free feel better in weeks. My cramps are mild , from a scale of 1 to 10 it ranges on a 3 to 4 level and it also gives me the feeling of being numb around my stomach and mid abdomen on the right side. Has anyone experienced anything like this?

      Sheep and goat's milk still contain  lactose, if that is the issue.

      just out of curiosity, can you try something like goat cheese? or something made from sheep's milk? It might give you the satisfaction of cheese without the dairy issue.
