Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
0

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:

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.

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?

      Hi all.  Still feeling the same way this past week. I'm thinking of dropping dairy starting from today, I don't know if I have a problem with it or not, but I drink 2 coffees a day with milk. I'm just constantly tired all the time, and getting trough the day is pretty hard, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that my sleep was improving but the last couple of days I have been waking up at least 3 times during the night, then when I get up in the morning it feels like I have been hit by a bus, like I haven't slept at all. I keep waking up during the night needing to drink water as I feel dehydrated, I don't know why as I drink 2-3 litres of water everyday 
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      Hi- new here but have been reading a lot of posts (Long post, last two paragraphs have actual question)  my four year old daughter probably has celiac but I don't know if I'll ever get a definitive diagnosis at this point.    Backstory: growth Delays, GI issues and a few other symptoms as a baby/young toddler. Did not have blood work done but went straight to biopsy which was negative. Always still had suspicions that gluten bothered her.    Started developing more symptoms around 3, by 3.5 they were pretty bad and her dr recommend eliminating gluten. (Blood in stool, rashes, low grade fever, joint pain, stomach pain and bloating, behavior issues) Everything cleared up quickly! Yay. Still had occasional gluten because I was under the impression it was "just an intolerance" and her symptoms kept up/got worse with each exposure. (Developed vomitting as most recent symptom) So I wanted to know if it was celiac. Can't do blood or biopsy since she's been mostly off gluten for months by this time.  I really was hoping to have a concrete answer and diagnosis, So we did genetic testing recently. It came back positive for half of DQ2 (beta subunit). Her dr isn't giving her official diagnosis but says "she is at a fairly low risk" but with her symptoms doesn't that mean she has developed it??!   Either way he says to keep her off gluten but I don't understand why he won't diagnose? Right now I am just telling people (besides family) that she has it because it's too hard to explain it all but do you think an actual diagnosis would be beneficial in any way? Should I push the issue with her dr? 
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Thanks for the advice and encouragement, Gemini. I appreciate having additional insight into my situation. Celiac being the cause of my health issues makes more and more sense the more I learn about it, and eliminating gluten sounds more and more like the right choice for me.
    • Did Jennifer Esposito Leave Town Amid $43 Million Gluten-Free Bakery Lawsuit?
      The topic of this forum is "Celiac Disease - Publications & Publicity," so certainly it fits in here, and in fact, this topic is designed specifically to handle any media coverage that relates to celiac disease and/or the gluten-free diet.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
