Buttermilk Oven-Fried Chicken (Gluten-Free)

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.

So as many of you might know at only 6 weeks Gluten Free we were shocked to see how many Neurological Issues were resolved for our daughter. It was shocking and amazing. We quickly began to realize that the difficulty swallowing, the Vertigo, the sensory issues were ALL Gluten related. Now in the last 2 weeks it all slipped away and she is almost entirely back to the way she was before we went Gluten Free. We have a pretty good idea why and are taking the steps to remedy it. BUT...it struck me that (for HER sake and the sake of her long term medical records) I need to get the Gluten Ataxia recognized. I realize now how fragile her health is and how hard she will have to fight to STAY healthy. And worse - potentially EVERY cross contamination will take her out for weeks and make her employment opportunities shaky and vulnerable. My Dr. agrees and is sending us to the McMaster Neurological Department (they are cutting edge, up on all that is new etc) to see if they are willing to work with us. She just put the referral in so I have no idea what will come from it. It my result in nothing? Or she may get a Gluten Ataxia diagnosis? I'm not sure but it is worth fighting for.

In my research, diabetes (type 2) is genetic. You either have the genes to develop diabetes or you do not. Additional weight is most likely due to insulin resistance. I happen to be a thin diabetic. I have never been heavy. I was brought up to consume the Standard American diet (SAD) full of process and sugary foods. The problem most celiacs have is that they just simply convert the SAD diet into a gluten free diet. I disagree. We need to consume foods that naturally contain nutrients that are good for us. Fortified foods were only developed during the last century. In the 20's they added iodine to salt to prevent thyroid disease (goiters). In the 30's they added Vitamin D to prevent rickets (fortified milk was better than that nasty cod liver oil). In the 40's they started fortifying flour. Why? They found that kids entering into the military during WWII were malnourished. Yes. They were malnourished. Remember, the Great Depression preceded the war. Read more: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK208880/ I consume very few grains because I do have diabetes. I eat fresh veggies (full of fiber), meats, fruit, eggs, and dairy along with plenty of fat (which does not raise blood sugar). I do occasionally fall of the wagon, but never the gluten-free wagon! Granted this diet is not for everyone. We must choose what works best for our individual health issues. But chances are we do not need to consume processed junk food in a daily basis. It is not healthy for a celiac. It is not healthy for anyone! So, everything in moderation and enjoy a varied diet.

I felt great a few weeks after going gluten-free. finally started loosing weight as well. the last few weeks I have not felt good. ok in the morning, then slowly start getting brain fog. shakes. pains. is low blood sugar a side affect of going gluten free????

I had a bone scan it didn't show any fractures, basically I left physical therapy in pain, it then went away. But my knee pain and tingling didn't go away so I tried PT again and I left it pain. Then I realized I had celiac and now all my pain is gone other then the back pain.. I'm basically worried I healed from the celiac and PT caused a whole new problem that never had to happen.

I am trying to find out if going gluten-free can cause low blood sugar. I felt so much better when going gluten-free, but now I feel weak, shaky, tired
