    This isn't bad, but it needs improvement from ones I have had in the restaurants. I added too much peanut butter (heaping tbsp scoops), I added some chicken broth to compensate. This toned it down a bit as far as the peanut buttery-ness goes and also adding chicken broth would allow this recipe to serve more people. I tried it finished without the chicken broth, then decided on it afterwards. It needs to be a bit spicier though I think. I added a bit of sriracha while cooking chicken, I added that too. I also added some egg when I added the chicken broth to it and did not have any bean sprouts, which was a bummer, however I don't know how much extra flavor bean sprouts alone would help things here. Every thing else I had. I would recommend the chicken and the egg. I give it a six and a half rounded to a seven and I gave it a four star hear because 3 would be a downgrade from my initial rating. I'll have to let you know next time how it goes with all of the ingredients. Thanks for the recipe.

    This recipe comes to us from "GRUMP 1" in the Gluten-Free Forum.
    You can either use chicken pieces or half-chickens (I used chicken breast).
    Ingredients:
    Enough chicken for all
    Olive oil
    Small bottle of gluten-free "Praline Syrup" (about a ½ cup-usually found near bulk coffee section of store-- I used Almond )
    ½ cup of favorite gluten-free whiskey
    Handful of chopped pecans
    Onion slices
    Salt & pepper
    Directions:
    Preheat your oven to 375F. Wash and pat dry the chicken, and place skin side up in roasting pan(s). If making 2 pans of chicken, you may need to double recipe. Drizzle generous amounts of oil over and around chicken. If using onions, put 2 or 3 'rings' on top of each half-chicken. Combine Praline syrup and whiskey and pour over chicken pieces. Sprinkle with pecans, salt and pepper and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for about 40-45 minutes, then remove the foil and put back in oven for about 10 minutes (this will cause flames in your oven, just a warning. But it was not bad). Just burning off the alcohol. This should brown the chicken.
    Alternate:
    Now, we used to serve it just like that, placed on a mound of grilled onions - But, another great way is to drain off the juice from the chicken pans (and run through a strainer), and use it like you would if you had made a roast -- you know - turn that juice into a kind of 'gravy', by adding either cornstarch or flour, and bringing it back to a boil, and then spoon over chicken. It is such a good dish and your whole house will smell like heaven! If you prefer to leave out the booze you can and it is almost as good without it!

    Celiac.com 03/11/2014 - Here's an easy to make recipe for Thai-style chicken that combines three sauces, onions, peppers, garlic, and, of course, plenty of basil.
    If you like chicken, and you like basil, and you're open to Asian-style dishes, you will likely enjoy this tasty chicken dish. I like to serve it over rice, and I sometimes pair it with a nice Thai-style vegetable curry.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast halves, sliced ¼-inch thick 2 small red bell peppers, cut into ¼-inch-wide strips 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 cup fresh basil leaves, lightly chopped 1 small onion, halved and cut into ¼-inch-thick wedges 1 teaspoon chopped garlic 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes coconut oil, for stir-fying cilantro springs for garnish salt and pepper to taste  Sauce 1
    2 tablespoons gluten-free fish sauce 2 teaspoons sugar 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce Sauce 2
    2 tablespoons gluten-free oyster sauce (Lee Kum Kee - Choy Sun) 4 tablespoons water 1 teaspoon chili paste Sauce 3
    1 teaspoon cornstarch 2 tablespoons water Directions:
    Rinse chicken pieces and pat dry with paper towels.
    In a medium bowl, mix cornstarch, salt and pepper. Toss in chicken strips and toss until well-coated with cornstarch.
    Heat oil in wok. Stir-fry onions and peppers until soft. Remove and keep warm.
    Add oil to wok as needed and stir-fry chicken, garlic, and pepper flakes until chicken is done.
    Add sauces in order, stirring each time to fully coat. Add cooked vegetables back and stir to coat.
    Add basil, stirring just until hot-crisp, and beginning to wilt.
    Garnish with cilantro and serve immediately over rice.

    Celiac.com 02/03/2015 - Want to crush it at your next big party this year? This fried chicken recipe will help you kick any party into high gear. From Manhattan to San Francisco, and points beyond, Korean fried chicken is all the rage in the food world.
    This fried chicken is first marinated in ginger, garlic and soy sauce, then coated in potato starch and fried until golden brown and crisp. It will have your guests begging for more and pestering you for the recipe.
    Ingredients:
    4 pounds chicken wings (about 2 kg), washed and drained 1½ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1 teaspoon minced ginger 1 cup potato starch 4 cloves garlic, minced 3 to 4 large dried red chili peppers, seeded, cut crosswise into …“ inch pieces (as desired) ½ cup gluten-free soy sauce ½ cup rice syrup or corn syrup 1 tablespoon cider vinegar 1 tablespoon gluten-free mustard 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 tablespoon sesame seeds Lard or vegetable oil for frying Marinade Ingredients:
    2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced 4-5 cloves garlic, minced 1½ cups soy sauce Directions:
    First, marinate the chicken in a refrigerated bowl for at least 4 hours, and up to 24 hours in advance.
    Next, begin by making the sauce by heating a large non-stick skillet or wok over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons cooking oil, minced garlic, and the dried red chili pepper.
    Stir with a wooden spoon until fragrant for about 30 seconds.
    Add soy sauce, rice syrup, vinegar, and mustard sauce (optional). Stir with a wooden spoon and let it bubble for a few minutes.
    Add the brown sugar and continue stirring. Remove from the heat. Set aside.
    Remove chicken from the marinade, and pat dry with paper towels. You may trim and chop the chicken before marinating if you wish. I usually marinate before trimming.
    Cut off the tip of each wing and chop the wing in half.
    When you’re finished, you’ll have about 30 to 36 pieces.
    Put the chicken in a bowl and mix with salt, ginger, and ground black pepper by hand.
    Put ½ cup potato starch in a bowl.
    One at a time, dip wings in the potato starch to coat. Add the additional potato starch as needed, and top off potato starch, if you come up short and still have a few pieces to do.
    Squeeze each wing to press the coating to it tightly.
    To fry the chicken, put 4 cups of cooking oil in a frying pan or pot and heat it on high heat. You want the oil hot, but not smoky.
    Test the oil’s heat level by dipping a test wing into it. If the oil bubbles, it’s hot enough to start frying.
    Gently add the coated wings one by one into the hot oil and cook for about 10-12 minutes, turning a few times.
    Transfer the cooked wings from the oil to a paper towel-lined wire rack.
    Lower the heat on the oil to prevent smoking, and let the wings cool for a few minutes.
    Raise the heat and fry the wings again for another 12 to 15 minutes until they all are golden brown and crunchy.
    When the chicken is done, reheat the sauce until it bubbles. Add the hot chicken and mix well with a wooden spoon until well-coated.
    Remove from the heat and transfer the coated chicken to a large plate. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve immediately.
    Note: This chicken travels well and stays crunchy, so don’t hesitate to take it to a potluck. Just be sure to make enough!

    Celiac.com 05/22/2018 - Proteins are the building blocks of life. If scientists can figure out how to create and grow new proteins, they can create new treatments and cures to a multitude of medical, biological and even environmental conditions.
    For a couple of decades now, scientists have been searching for a biological Rosetta stone that would allow them to engineer proteins with precision, but the problem has remained dauntingly complex.  Researchers had a pretty good understanding of the very simple way that the linear chemical code carried by strands of DNA translates into strings of amino acids in proteins. 
    But, one of the main problems in protein engineering has to do with the way proteins fold into their various three-dimensional structures. Until recently, no one has been able to decipher the rules that will predict how proteins fold into those three-dimensional structures.  So even if researchers were somehow able to design a protein with the right shape for a given job, they wouldn’t know how to go about making it from protein’s building blocks, the amino acids.
    But now, scientists like William DeGrado, a chemist at the University of California, San Francisco, and David Baker, director for the Institute for Protein Design at the University of Washington, say that designing proteins will become at least as important as manipulating DNA has been in the past couple of decades.
    After making slow, but incremental progress over the years, scientists have improved their ability to decipher the complex language of protein shapes. Among other things, they’ve gained a better understanding of how then the laws of physics cause the proteins to snap into folded origami-like structures based on the ways amino acids are attracted or repelled by others many places down the chain.
    It is this new ability to decipher the complex language of protein shapes that has fueled their progress. UCSF’s DeGrado is using these new breakthroughs to search for new medicines that will be more stable, both on the shelf and in the body. He is also looking for new ways to treat Alzheimer’s disease and similar neurological conditions, which result when brain proteins fold incorrectly and create toxic deposits.
    Meanwhile, Baker’s is working on a single vaccine that would protect against all strains of the influenza virus, along with a method for breaking down the gluten proteins in wheat, which could help to generate new treatments for people with celiac disease. 
    With new computing power, look for progress on the understanding, design, and construction of brain proteins. As understanding, design and construction improve, look for brain proteins to play a major role in disease research and treatment. This is all great news for people looking to improve our understanding and treatment of celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 05/21/2018 - Just a year ago, Starbucks debuted their Canadian bacon, egg and cheddar cheese gluten-free sandwich. During that year, the company basked in praise from customers with celiac disease and gluten-sensitivity for their commitment to delivering a safe gluten-free alternative to it’s standard breakfast offerings.
    But that commitment came to an ignoble end recently as Starbucks admitted that their gluten-free sandwich was plagued by  “low sales,” and was simply not sustainable from a company perspective. The sandwich may not have sold well, but it was much-loved by those who came to rely on it.
    With the end of that sandwich came the complaints. Customers on social media were anything but quiet, as seen in numerous posts, tweets and comments pointing out the callous and tone-deaf nature of the announcement which took place in the middle of national Celiac Disease Awareness Month. More than a few posts threatened to dump Starbucks altogether.
    A few of the choice tweets include the following:  
    “If I’m going to get coffee and can’t eat anything might as well be DD. #celiac so your eggbites won’t work for me,” tweeted @NotPerryMason. “They’re discontinuing my @Starbucks gluten-free sandwich which is super sad, but will save me money because I won’t have a reason to go to Starbucks and drop $50 a week,” tweeted @nwillard229. Starbucks is not giving up on gluten-free entirely, though. The company will still offer several items for customers who prefer gluten-free foods, including Sous Vide Egg Bites, a Marshmallow Dream Bar and Siggi’s yogurt.
    Stay tuned to learn more about Starbucks gluten-free foods going forward.

    Celiac.com 05/18/2018 - Across the country, colleges and universities are rethinking the way they provide food services for students with food allergies and food intolerance. In some cases, that means major renovations. In other cases, it means creating completely new dining and food halls. To document both their commitment and execution of gluten-free and allergen-free dining, these new food halls are frequently turning to auditing and accreditation firms, such as Kitchens with Confidence.
    The latest major player to make the leap to allergen-free dining is Syracuse University. The university’s Food Services recently earned an official gluten-free certification from Kitchens with Confidence for four of the University’s dining centers, with the fifth soon to follow.
    To earn the gluten-free certification from Kitchens with Confidence, food services must pass a 41 point audit process that includes 200 control check points. The food service must also agree to get any new food item approved in advance, and to submit to monthly testing of prep surfaces, to furnish quarterly reports, and to provide information on any staffing changes, recalls or incident reports. Kitchens with Confidence representatives also conduct annual inspections of each dining center.
    Syracuse students and guests eating at Ernie Davis, Shaw, Graham and Sadler dining centers can now choose safe, reliable gluten-free food from a certified gluten-free food center. The fifth dining center, Brockway, is currently undergoing renovations scheduled for completion by fall, when Brockway will also receive its certification.
    Syracuse Food Services has offered a gluten-free foods in its dining centers for years. According to Jamie Cyr, director of Auxiliary Services, the university believes that the independent Gluten-Free Certification from Kitchens with Confidence will help ease the anxiety for parents and students.”
    Syracuse is understandably proud of their accomplishment. According to Mark Tewksbury, director of residence dining operations, “campus dining centers serve 11,000 meals per day and our food is made fresh daily. Making sure that it is nutritious, delicious and safe for all students is a top priority.”
    Look for more colleges and universities to follow in the footsteps of Syracuse and others that have made safe, reliable food available for their students with food allergies or sensitivities.

    Celiac.com 05/17/2018 - Celiac disease is not one of the most deadly diseases out there, but it can put you through a lot of misery. Also known as coeliac, celiac disease is an inherited immune disorder. What happens is that your body’s immune system overreacts to gluten and damages the small intestine. People who suffer from the disease cannot digest gluten, a protein found in grain such as rye, barley, and wheat. 
    While it may not sound like a severe complication at first, coeliac can be unpleasant to deal with. What’s worse is it would lower your body’s capacity to absorb minerals and vitamins. Naturally, the condition would cause nutritional deficiencies. The key problem that diagnosing celiac is difficult and takes take longer than usual. Surprisingly, the condition has over 200 identified symptoms.
    More than three million people suffer from the coeliac disease in the United States alone. Even though diagnosis is complicated, there are symptoms that can help you identify the condition during the early stages to minimize the damage. 
    Here is how you can recognize the main symptoms of celiac disease:
    Diarrhea
    In various studies conducted over years, the most prominent symptom of celiac disease is chronic diarrhea.
    People suffering from the condition would experience loose watery stools that can last for up to four weeks after they stop taking gluten. Diarrhea can also be a symptom of food poisoning and other conditions, which is why it makes it difficult to diagnose coeliac. In certain cases, celiac disease can take up to four years to establish a sound diagnosis.
    Vomiting
    Another prominent symptom is vomiting.  
    When accompanied by diarrhea, vomiting can be a painful experience that would leave you exhausted. It also results in malnutrition and the patient experiences weight loss (not in a good way though). If you experience uncontrolled vomiting, report the matter to a physician to manage the condition.
    Bloating
    Since coeliac disease damages the small intestine, bloating is another common system. This is due to inflammation of the digestive tract. In a study with more than a 1,000 participants, almost 73% of the people reported bloating after ingesting gluten. 
    Bloating can be managed by eliminating gluten from the diet which is why a gluten-free diet is necessary for people suffering from celiac disease.
    Fatigue
    Constant feeling of tiredness and low energy levels is another common symptom associated with celiac disease. If you experience a lack of energy after in taking gluten, then you need to consult a physician to diagnose the condition. Now fatigue can also result from inefficient thyroid function, infections, and depression (a symptom of the coeliac disease). However, almost 51% of celiac patients suffer from fatigue in a study.
    Itchy Rash
    Now the chances of getting a rash after eating gluten are slim, but the symptom has been associated with celiac disease in the past. The condition can cause dermatitis herpetiformis, which causes a blistering skin rash that occurs around the buttocks, knees, and elbows. 
    A study found out that almost 17% of patients suffering from celiac disease might develop dermatitis herpetiformis due to lack of right treatment. Make sure you schedule an online appointment with your dermatologist or visit the nearest healthcare facility to prevent worsening of symptoms.
    Even with such common symptoms, diagnosing the condition is imperative for a quick recovery and to mitigate the long-term risks associated with celiac disease.
