gluten-free Kung Pao Chicken

Marinade:

2 tsp cornstarch

2 tsp gluten-free soysauce

2 tsp sherry

1/2 tsp dry mustard

1 egg white

3 - 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes

Vegetables of your choice (waterchestnuts, red or green bell peppers, zuchinni, carrots, broccoli, onions etc.) cut into 1 inch size pieces

dry roasted peanuts (optional)

Oil

Sauce:

5 TBSP gluten-free soy sauce

3 TBSP sherry

2 tsp sesame oil (I use toasted variety)

1 tsp sugar

2 TBSP water

1 TBSP cornstarch

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (omit if you don't like spicy, add more if you like it hot!)

Directions:

1. Cook rice of your choice, if desired. (that way it'll be done when stir fry is ready)

2. Mix marinade, and toss chicken cubes to coat. Let sit while preparing veggies

3. cut veggies

4. mix sauce, set aside

5. Cook chicken in oil over high heat, stirring often. ( I use a wok, but a big fry pan with high sides will do)

6. remove chicken, set aside

7. Add more oil to pan, if needed and stir fry veggies (start with ones that require the longest to cook - ie the carrots, broccoli, end with the quicker cooking ones - ie the peppers, mushrooms, zuchini)

8. Return chicken to pan

9. Stir sauce, then add to pan and stir constantly to coat everything

10. Toss in handful of peanuts, if desired, mix.

Serve immediately over rice, or lower heat to simmer until ready to serve.

Enjoy! Sara

Here's a similar recipe. I found it in a newspaper. Doesn't take long to cook and comes out always delicious.

LUCKY SEVEN STIR-FRY

2 bags Success White or Brown Rice

3/4 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast or boneless tender beef, cut into thin stiprs

2 teaspoons Kikkoman Soy Sauce (I use gluten-free Tamari Sauce)

2 teaspoons cornstarch

3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

1 pkg. (16 oz.) frozen vegetables for stir-fry

1 cup Lucky Seven Stir-Fry Sauce*

1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)

Prepare rice according to package directions; keep warm. Meanwhile, combine meat, cornstarch and soy sauce; let stand 10 minutes. Stir-fry meat in 2 Tbsp. hot oil in wok or large skillet over high heat 2 minutes. Combine Lucky Seven Stir-Fry Sauce and red pepper; pour mixture over vegetables. Cook, stirring, until sauce boils and thickens. Stir in meat to combine. Serve over rice. Makes 4 servings.

* Lucky Seven Stir-Fry Sauce:

Combine 1/2 cup cornstarch, 2 1/4 cups chicken broth, 2/3 cup Kikkoman (or gluten-free Tamari) Soy Sauce, 1/2 cup dry sherry, 1/3 cup light corn syrup, 2 Tbsp each minced garlic and grated fresh ginger root (for no aparent reason I never have it at the moment, so I use 1 teaspoon ground) in a 1 1/2 quart jar with tight-fitting lid. Shake well. Store in refrigerator up to 3 weeks. Just before measuring out or using, shake or stir well to blend ingredients. Makes 4 cups.

Enjoy,

Alexa

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
