Nearly Kfc Chicken (gluten Free Coating Mix)
0

11 posts in this topic

I have been gluten free since January 2007. I have found so much information, encouragement and compassion on this site, so I thought I would share my family's favourite chicken recipe. I used to make this before I was gluten free, but I think the gluten free flour makes a crispier coating!

If you are missing KFC, this may be close enough that you don't feel so deprived. It's also better for you -- not as much salt and it is baked and not fried.

Enjoy!

KFC Coating Mix

In a ziploc bag, mix

2 cups gluten free flour (I use celamix white bread mix)

2 Tbsp. gluten free baking powder

1 Tbsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

4 Tbsp. paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp. italian seasoning

1 tsp. ground ginger

1 tsp. sugar

Mix together in the bag. Dampen your chicken pieces (cut up chicken, sliced chicken breast for chicken fingers or chicken nuggets) using your favourite method (milk, eggs, water). Coat with the above mixture.

In a shallow baking dish (a pyrex lasagna pan works well), coat the bottom with oil. Place your chicken in a single layer and bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until done.

YUMMY!!!! This looks great, and really easy :)

Quick question, I've never heard of the Celamix bread mix. What is that? Where do you find it?

Celamix bread mix is available in Canada. It is a mixture of gluten free flours (rice, potato starch, etc.). It is available at our Old Fashioned Foods (health food/supply) stores, but I can also find it in my local super market ( Real Canadian Superstore).

I'm sure any gluten free flour mix would work just as well.

Yummy!

I tried this for dinner tonight using Bette Hagman's featherlite flour mix for the gluten free flour. I made french fries with it and felt like I went out for fast food. :) My non-celiac fiance liked it so much he asked if I made sure to put it in my binder that I keep my favorite recipes in!

Thank you so much for the recipe!

Mm, this does look good. How much chicken did you use? (I.e., there's only one of me, should I halve the recipe for the coating?) Can't wait to try it!

Hi Kochac

This recipe does make enough for a couple of chickens at least. You can half the recipe, or you can make the entire amount, transfer a little bit into a small container to coat your chicken pieces, and save the rest for another time.

I hope this helps.....

Thanks for the great idea. I used Fearns brown rice baking mix and brown rice flour. I added the spices I used to use to make fried chicken. I dipped mine in buttermilk and then coated them. I baked them in olive and oil and butter. It is the best I've had since going gluten free.

    • Susan Nash - this is interesting. Do you know anyone who has had success with supplements?  My doctor has just said to me that she has noticed a lot of celiac ladies have thinner hair in later life.  Obviously, that is just her observation. But I am going to ask for some vitamin and mineral testing so I can supplement any shortfall in case that is a problem.  I also am iron anemic which I'm sure isn't helping.   I have also read it is important that people who are worried about hair loss make sure they are eating enough protein.
    • Previous studies have indicated an increase in celiac disease rates in the United States, but these studies have been done on narrow populations, and did not produce results that are nationally representative. View the full article
    • No worries!!! 

      Yes I've been completely gluten free for over a year now, except when I get glutened from restaurants etc. My 'traces symptoms' have always been major bloating and lots of bathroom breaks but now during my gluten challenge so far I've had some super crazy symptoms... varying from loose stools to severe constipation, bloating 24/7, shortness of breath, rash, joint pains, mood swings, brain fog, headaches and some sharp pains similar to brain freeze but worse... the list goes on, but I'm determined to have a definite result! 
    • Ennis_TX - Your post rings true with me. I was only diagnosed in May, but from May through.... basically two weeks ago, I was out of my mind. I completely understand when you describe it. I had zero self control. I retired from the Army after 21 years and had always had pride in myself that I could handle just about anything thrown my way. That was until this disease. I found myself sobbing uncontrollably, not getting out of bed till late afternoon, hiding in the bedroom from my own family, missing work, not being able to make simple decisions, I was getting at most, 3 hours of sleep a night. I would sit up in bed and literally scream out loud in frustration. I asked my wife several times to bring me to the VA Psyc. ward (which she talked me out of). I had no pleasure or happiness in my life even though I have a very supportive wife of 32 years, and two ideal kids with three grandkids. I had NO reason to feel the way I did, but yet, there I was. And like you mentioned, I too had a "Bucket List" per say.  To top it all off, I had this horrible muscle pain in my legs and arms. Joints a little, but the muscles were in constant pain. One month ago they diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. At this point I am not willing to accept that diagnosis.  They started me on Gabapentin and these last two weeks I have actually started feeling less pain in the muscles and my mind is bouncing back too. Although the muscle pain came back a bit Sunday, and has me a little concerned. I keep telling myself it has only been 4 months gluten-free, and that it will take time. But I have to admit, I do not have much patience and I want to start feeling better now.   I ran into an old Army friend a few weeks back, and he had been diagnosed in 2009. He told me everything he went through and other than diarrhea and an inflamed throat, his biggest symptoms were depression/anxiety and brain fog. He said his wife was so worried she sold all of his guns. He would sometimes find himself in the backyard just curled up in the grass wondering when it would end for him. Absolute craziness. When I shared the issues I was having he could relate 100%. He said he hasn't met anyone else that went through the same things as him and it was therapeutic for us both. He told me of some places that were Celiac friendly, and we agreed to let each other know when something new hits the market, or any other good news via text. Back in May I searched for a celiac support group near by, but no luck. I stumbled on this forum and it has helped me tremendously. Stories like yours helped to insure me I was not losing my mind. Which, I might add, I told many VA & civilian Psychiatrists that indeed I was. Thanks for your post, and I hope nothing but the best for you, here forward. Dharwood
    • It is enough for the endoscopy, but not for the blood panel.  It could be worth trying for the blood test, but there is a greater chance of it being negative.  I assume you have been gluten-free for a while.  I admire that you were able to do the gluten challenge!  (I guess I should have pulled up your previous posts, but I was busy getting my kid to school.)
