    Celiac.com 02/05/2015 - If you love fried chicken, and especially if you love great fried chicken that happens to be gluten-free, then you’ll love Japanese-style fried chicken that uses potato starch to create a golden crispy crust, and a truly tender, juicy fried chicken that will have empty plates asking for more.

    Ingredients:

    • 1 pound chicken thighs – boneless skin-on cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce
    • 1½ tablespoon sake
    • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
    • ½ cup potato starch
    • lard or vegetable oil for frying
    • Lemon wedges as garnish
    • Japanese Mayonnaise (Miracle Whip), as desired
    • Hot mustard, as desired

    Directions:
    Add the ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sake and sugar to a bowl and whisk to combine. Add the chicken, then stir to coat evenly.

    Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

    Line a wire rack with paper towels and have your tongs or cooking chopsticks handy.

    Put the potato starch in a bowl.

    Add a few pieces of chicken to the potato starch and toss to coat each piece evenly.

    Add 1 inch of vegetable oil to a heavy bottomed pot and heat until the oil reaches 360 degrees F.

    Fry the chicken in small batches until the outside is a golden brown and the chicken is cooked through.

    When chicken is golden brown, transfer to the paper towel lined rack. Allow to cool. Serve warm with small bowls of hot mustard and kewpie (Japanese mayonnaise).

    If you want the chicken to stay crispy longer, especially if you are transporting it, or plan to serve it later, you can fry the chicken a second time. Just repeat the frying process after it has cooled off.

    Serve with lemon edges, mustard and mayonnaise.

    Celiac.com 10/16/2014 - For those lucky enough to have traveled in Lao, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, these lettuce wraps might seem familiar. Variations on lettuce cups are fairly common in the cuisine of those countries.
    These lettuce cups are easy to make, barbecue friendly, and are usually a big hit with party guests.
    These are made with pork, but I’ve seen variations using chicken, beef, or even fish.
    Ingredients:
    16-20 Boston Bibb or butter lettuce leaves 1 pound pork loin, cut into small chunks 1 package of rice vermicelli, softened and drained 8-10 bunch green onions, chopped 4 sprigs fresh mint 1 tablespoon cooking oil ...
