    Ingredients:

    • 2 cups dried lentils
    • 3 cups water
    • 1 cup carrots, sliced thin
    • 1 large onion, sliced
    • 1 cup celery, sliced
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 3 tablespoons parsley, chopped
    • ¼ teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon pepper
    • 1 ½ tablespoons gluten-free apple cider vinegar
    • 3 cans (8 oz. each.) salt-free tomato sauce
    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • 4 bone-in chicken breasts, skin removed

    Directions:
    In a medium saucepan, cover lentils with water; bring to a boil, then rinse and drain.  Return lentils to pan.  Add 3 cups water and next 5 ingredients; bring to a boil.  Lower heat; simmer 45 minutes or until lentils are tender, adding more water if needed.  Stir in salt, pepper, vinegar and tomato sauce; simmer 5 minutes more. 

    Spray a large skillet with gluten-free nonstick spray.  Add oil and sauté chicken pieces over high heat until browned on both sides.  Spoon lentil mixture over chicken, lower heat to medium, cover pan and simmer 40 minutes or until chicken is fork tender, adding more water if needed to keep lentils moist.

    The vast majority of apple-cider vinegars aren't labeled specifically as gluten-free, and I'm certainly not going to go running all over town to find one that is, and then pay 2 or 3 times as much for the privilege. I get cranky about recipes that imply that you can't use ingredients that aren't specifically labeled as gluten-free, when the presence of gluten in that particular product is spectacularly unlikely in the first place. I see things on the grocery shelf like packaged rice, and it is suddenly being touted as gluten-free, and I wonder how gullible can people be?

    I’m a big fan of just about any “one-pot” meal. A good one-pot meal is easy to make and brimming with flavor. The flavors in this simple dish come together seamlessly. The roasted vegetables and herbs infuse the flaky salmon. This recipe serves four, but can easily be adjusted to accommodate more or fewer people. Add this to your repertoire for quick entertaining or classic, at-home comfort.
    Ingredients:
    4 6-8 ounce salmon fillets, skin removed
    2 fennel bulbs, cut into ½-inch wedges
    1 pound small pearl onions, peeled
    6 cloves garlic
    2 cups cherry tomatoes
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    3 sprigs each fresh ...

    Anyone who has given up gluten has favorite dishes that they've had to give up, and which are difficult if not impossible to replace.
    For me the list includes numerous dishes of the breaded and fried nature. I'm talking about dishes like fried chicken, fried catfish and chicken Parmesan. Bread crumbs, especially Japanese-style panko breadcrumbs, are one of the things for which I've not been able to find a suitable substitute.
    The Japanese make a popular dish called Tonkatsu, which is a pork or chicken cutlet, breaded and fried in hot oil. The dish is often served with a curry gravy and rice for a hearty meal. It is also one of my favorites and one...
