    Buttermilk Oven-Fried Chicken (Gluten-Free)


    Jefferson Adams

    Fried chicken is undeniably one of my very favorite things to eat. It is also one of the things I did away with when I adopted a gluten-free diet. However, when I discovered the joys of breading and frying with crushed gluten-free Rice Chex cereal recently, I went a bit nuts and began to test the results on all of my old, and long-missed favorites.

    This recipe marinates the chicken overnight, then fries it up in oil, and finishes it in the oven for a crispy texture.

    The recipe makes 6-8 servings, and goes great with mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, beans, cole slaw, or any other side dish you care to serve.

    Ingredients:
    1½ tablespoons salt - for brine
    1 quart of water - for brine
    3 eggs
    1 cup hot red pepper sauce
    1 cup of rice flour
    3 pound chicken, cut into 8 pieces
    1 quart buttermilk
    2 cups Rice Chex, finely crushed
    1 tablespoon kosher salt
    1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon garlic powder
    1 tablespoon ground oregano
    1 tablespoon paprika
    1 tablespoon thyme,
    1 tablespoon cayenne pepper,
    1 tablespoon ground parsley
    Vegetable oil or vegetable shortening

    Directions:
    In a large bowl, dissolve 1½ tablespoons of salt in 1 quart of water. Add cut chick pieces to the salt water.

    Marinate for 30 minutes at room temperature, or in the refrigerator for one hour.

    Remove chicken from salt water, and dry lightly on paper towel.

    Place the chicken pieces in a large bowl and pour the buttermilk over them. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

    Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a deep pot. Do not fill the pot more than halfway with oil.

    In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs. Add enough hot sauce so the egg mixture is bright orange (about 1 cup).

    Season the chicken with mixture of salt, garlic powder, oregano, paprika, thyme, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and ground parsley.

    Dredge each piece in rice flour.

    Dip the seasoned chicken in the egg, and then coat well in the Rice Chex.

    Place the chicken in the preheated oil a few pieces at a time, and fry the chicken about 3-5 minutes, until the coating is a light golden brown. Chicken will brown further in the oven. Be sure not to crowd the pieces.

    Allow the oil to return to 360 degrees F before frying the next batch.

    As the pieces finish, remove each piece from the oil and place on a paper towel to dry a bit. Once all the chicken pieces are fried and dry, place pieces on a metal baking rack set on a sheet pan.

    Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the chicken is no longer pink inside. Serve hot.

    Note: Dark meat takes longer than white meat, so check pieces separately with a fork. Make sure the juices run clear.

    Oh, Chicken, how can I prepare thee? Let me count the ways. This is a great, quick spin on everyday chicken thighs and can easily spice up an ordinary middle-of-the-week dinner. The combination of spices is potent and aromatic but the real kick comes from the cider vinegar. I’ve played around with different combinations and quantities of spices depending on which flavor I want to highlight—that’s the fun part. Thighs are great over brown rice, on a salad, with veggies, in tacos or even on their own. Thighs also cook great on the grill in the summertime.
    Ingredients:
    8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs
    6 tablespoons honey
    3 teaspoons cider vinegar
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons paprika
    2 teaspoons black pepper
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 teaspoon ginger
    1 teaspoon ground red pepper
    1 teaspoon salt
    Directions
    In a small bowl, mix honey and cider vinegar and set aside.
    Combine all spices in medium a bowl and mix well. Add in chicken thighs and work until well coated with spice mixture. Place thighs on a broiler pan and broil for 5-6 minutes on each side.
    After chicken in fully cooked, remove from over and brush half of the honey glaze over thighs. Cook for another minute and repeat with the reverse side of the chicken. Serve with you favorite side dish. Thighs are great the next day.

    Once you’ve had this tangy, spicy corn, it will be hard to go back to the plain stuff. Like a good plate of ribs, you eat this corn with the hope of getting messy. You can easily substitute regular chili powder, but ancho is a good one to keep in the pantry, because it adds a mild, smoky-sweet flavor that’s just perfect with lime.
    Ingredients:
    4-6 ears of corn, in husk
    1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
    Juice of 1 lime, plus 1 lime cut into wedges
    1 tablespoon lime zest
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    3 tablespoons butter, room-temperature
    Pinch of salt and pepper
    Directions:
    In a small bowl, combine butter chili powder, lime juice, zest, garlic, salt and pepper. Whisk in olive oil and set aside.
    Peel back corn husks but don’t remove them. Remove silk and fold husks back around the ears. Soak in warm water for 20 minutes.
    In the meantime, preheat grill. Remove ears, fold back husks and pat dry. Spread generously with butter mixture. Fold husks over once more and grill, turning frequently, for 20-30 minutes. Serve immediately with extra lime wedges.

    Beef tenderloin is one of those things that I rarely make but, when I do, I always find myself pledging to make more often in the future.
    Here's a recipe for a delicious beef tenderloin with a port wine and shiitake mushroom sauce that will have your diners asking what they've done to be loved so much. The recipe makes enough to serve two people. Scale accordingly.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound beef tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
    1½ tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    1 cup shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
    1 cup port wine
    2 teaspoons seedless raspberry or blackberry jam
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (Lea and Perins is gluten-free)
    ¾ cup beef broth
    salt and pepper to taste
    Directions:
    Lightly season beef tenderloin cubes with salt and pepper, then set aside at room temperature, and continue preparing the rest of the ingredients.
    Heat ¾ tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the shiitake mushrooms, and cook about five minutes until they wilt and start to turn golden brown. Remove the mushrooms from the skillet and set aside.
    Heat the remaining olive oil in the skillet until it begins to smoke, then add the beef tenderloin cubes.
    Stir until cubes are brown on the outside and the meat is cooked just short of your desired degree of doneness, about 5 minutes total for medium rare tenderloin cubes.
    Remove the tenderloin cubes from the skillet and set aside.
    Turn up the heat, add the port wine to the skillet and bring to a boil.
    Boil until the port has reduced by half, then whisk in the jam, Worcestershire sauce, beef broth, and shiitake mushrooms. Continue cooking until the sauce has reduced to ⅓ to ½ cup, about 30 minutes. Once reduced, stir in the tenderloin cubes, and reheat briefly until warm. Remove and serve.

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
