Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

15 posts in this topic

I have a freezer full of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Other than grilling them, I have NO clue what to do with these? I don't tolerate any of the flours so breading is not an option. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Thankfully there are so many recipes that are naturally gluten free. As chicken breast dries so easily, make sure to pound so they are the same size so they cook evenly (unless you are cubing). Brining first, depending on recipe, can really make them more tender.

Thai Chicken Curry (cubed chicken)

Chicken Piccata - instead of using the flour, just thicken at the end with a touch of arrowroot or cornstarch

Chicken Parmigiana

Chicken Cacciatore

Stuffed with spinach and feta (or pesto or goat cheese or whatever you want)

Chicken Salad (for sandwiches, etc.)

Chicken Kung Pao

Roasted with tomatoes or grapes

Jambalaya

Chicken Marabella

Chicken fingers (using gluten-free crumbs and Parmesan)

Braised in vinegar

Many Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Korean dishes such as wraps (with rice paper, veg, sauce...)

Cashew Chicken

Chicken wrapped in bacon and roasted (with fresh herbs, etc.)

Chicken en papillote (in parchment with a touch of butter, white wine, herbs - pounded thinly to cook evenly)

Chicken Tikka Masala

Chicken Marsala

Chicken Quesidillas

Chicken Enchiladas

Greek Chicken (with oregano, lemon, feta, mint)

Glazed with infused honey (I like to infuse honey with chipotle, lavender, etc.)

Stuff peppers such as poblano with diced chicken, rice, tomato sauce, whatever you want and top with cheese and bake.

There are thousands of marinade recipes I have. Same with glazes, dry and wet rubs, etc.

You mentioned not grilling but perhaps you could make them into kebabs or Thai skewers or a satay...

I could easily list so many more but this could become a very long and boring post! :P Let me know if you need any recipes for the above. I teach cooking classes and am a recipe tester, not to mention absolutely smitten with cooking.

You missed one!

Honey mustard. :P

Just mix equal parts honey and mustard (it doesn't work if you just squirt them on the chicken, I've tried) and add garlic powder and pepper as you like. I like to cut the chicken breast lengthwise into thirds to make the pieces smaller, less time in the oven=juicier chicken.

Also, salsa chicken! Salsa+chicken. Bake. Done.

You can make a skillet dinner with cubed chicken, red beans and rice, diced tomatoes, seasoning (chili seasoning or just seasoned salt, or salt & pepper). Add ins: onion, peppers, jalapenos, cheese. Serve with tortilla chips. I just cube and cook the chicken, then add everything else using Minute-rice and plenty of liquid from canned tomatoes, and let it simmer until the rice is done.

Hi Love2Travel, could I have the recipes for the bacon wrapped one and the stuffed pepper one? They sound great. I appreciate it. Be well.

Thanks for the ideas. I forgot to mention that I can't have anything processed like mustard or salsa or canned tomatoes. I'm allergic to corn and it all has corn. I am thinking of doing something with lemon and dill or parsley. I usually do that with skinned chicken. I am worried about it drying out.

I love this crockpot one!

4 chicken breasts

20 oz can pineapple chunks

1/4 cup gluten free soy sauce

dash of red pepper flakes (optional)

put in crock pot for 3-4 hours on high or 4-6 on low. Serve over rice or spinach.

I have also dumped them in a crock pot with a can of Progresso Creamy Mushroom soup and served over rice when I was at a loss for dinner.

Thaw it, slice it thin and put into a ziploc bag. Douse with interesting ingredients, squoosh it around until all chicken is coated, and let marinate in fridge for an hour or more. I like olive oil, cider or wine vinegar, worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt, but all kinds of things work. You should have some kind of oil and some kind of acid - lemon juice or vinegar. Saute the slices until cooked through (you don't even need to add more oil to the pan), then cut up and add to green salads or just eat.

To prevent them from drying out, pound them out until they are thin (and consistent thickness) and/or throw them into a brine. Brines make them very juicy and add flavour, too. So easy to do. Then cook until just done. Roasting in parchment with a little liquid (i.e. white wine, lemon juice, capers) keeps them moist as well.

How to brine:

A brine recipe:

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/rachael-ray/easy-brine-chicken-breasts-with-sicilian-glaze-and-puttanesca-style-panzanella-recipe/index.html

If you brine in the above (there are hundreds of good brine recipes out there), just leave chicken breasts in for about 2 hours, not much longer.

After you brine, you can throw on a rub or bake in oven and throw on some sauce or a glaze.

This is an extra easy version of the pepper recipe. You can serve with rice as suggested or just throw some in with the rest of the filling.

Thank you so much. :D

You are welcome. And don't let these recipes restrict you - use the same principles to create your own fillings. For example, I like to add chorizo to stuffed peppers.

I will Google chorizo and attempt to be brave. Thanks for the encouragement. Be well

It is a spicy dry cured sausage. Spanish far better than Mexican. I am making my own next week.

Have you used pancetta? It is basically Italian bacon you purchase in slabs that you can dice or whatever you want. Diced pancetta is awesome in stuffed baked potatoes or those peppers, not to mention tons of other delicious things.

You be well, too. :)

Do you have a Whole Foods near you? I like to get the 'fat free' organic jarred pasta sauce, Whole Foods brand, because it has tomatoes and spices. That's it. Should be corn free, has no oil, citric acid or vinegar. It is a 'shared facility' product, but not shared equipment.

Also, you can get dry mustard spice to flavor things with. Could try that with the honey, add fresh garlic?

    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
