My dh made chicken fried steak for me a few weeks ago and I couldn't tell the difference. I will ask him what he did and post his recipe. Now that I think about it, I liked it better than the old way.

Laura, your recipe sounds yummy! We will have to try it.

Southerners, while you wait for the chicken and dumplings (I am waiting too!), here is our "Southern-style" mac and cheese:

(Measurements approx.)

Cut up 1/2 stick of margarine or butter in the bottom of a casserole dish.

Add 2 eggs

Pour in @ 8 oz. of cooked gluten-free macaroni noodles

Add cut up chunks of cheese (as much as you like, I just eye-ball it) cheddar and/or any white cheeses

Salt and pepper

Stir it all up and add some milk until it looks somewhat soupy.

Bake @ 400* for 20 min.

Let it sit about 10 min. before eating.

Easy and yummy!

I fry chicken in gluten-free pancake mix with crushed gluten-free corn flakes and salt and pepper.

I have also used Bob's gluten-free all-purpose flour, seasoning, and crushed cornflakes.

Dip chicken in egg, fry in canola oil.

I usually fry it in little nugget or strip size pieces, that is what my kids like best.

Throw in some green beans and summer squash. . . anyone getting hungry? :P

Now that we're onto chicken fried stuff, any one ever try dredging your meat in the all purpose flour, and then in parmesian cheese, then fry?

It is so good! The cheese gets real crispy and it has a grat flavor! It's good on eggplant, like for eggplant parm! Or on veggies like zuchini or mushrooms for an appetizer!

And sometimes I'll through alittle ground up pecan into the mix!!!!

I make chicken parmesan with gluten-free breadcrumbs, parm, italian seasoning, garlic salt, & lemon pepper.

Dip the flattened chicken into beaten egg, dip in the breadcrumb mixture, and pan cook. Once done, cover with sauce and mozzarella and stick under broiler to melt the cheese

YUM! :lol:

Here ya go. Y'all may have a different biscuit mix you use, but I like this one. I'm new to this, though. I use water in the mix to cut back on carbs since my hubby is a diabetic. Enjoy! :rolleyes:

Chicken and Dumplings

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

3 ½ cups water

2 cups skim milk

1 McCormick’s chicken bullion cube

1 T. freshly ground black pepper

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1 c. Cause You’re Special Biscuit Mix

3 T. Crisco, 0 Trans fat type

1 egg

1/3 c. water

3 T. cornstarch

4 T. water

Boil chicken in water until tender in a large saucepan. Remove from broth and cut into bite size pieces. Combine biscuit mix, Crisco, egg, and water according to package directions. Add milk, salt, and pepper to broth and return to a boil. Drop 1 tsp. of dough at a time into broth mixture. Keep it at a rolling boil. Add chicken to pot. Mix cornstarch and water in a separate container until all lumps disappear, then add to pot. Boil until desired consistency is reached (usually less than 5 minutes), stirring frequently.

Sorry for the delay on the Chicken Fried steak, sick child.

My dh uses the gluten free all purpose flour with salt, pepper and a dash of garlic salt. He coats the meat in a mixture of skim milk (or Lactaid for me) and two egg whites then coats the meat with the flour. He lightly fries in frying pan over medium high heat. For the gravy he uses the flour mixture with the milk and the drippings from the fried meat or substitutes chicken broth for the drippings. He's still working on the consistency of the gravy b/c it seems to thicken up quicker than a traditional gravy but man oh man is it tasty!

We use the orange cheese powder from the bulk section of the super market and use rice instead of noodles my son loves it, get a foreman grill we cook homemade chicken nuggets right on the grill for a quick meal, also try braking up bar-b-que pototoe chips in the gluten-free flour and bread with that makes them taste really good, for burgers we cook corn tortillas lightly on the grill spray them with a cooking spray first get them just slight crispy put cheese on each piece and slap the burger in between tastes way better the rolls. Also wrap gluten-free hotdogs in cheese and then a corn tortilla spray lightly with gluten-free cooking spray and stick in the foreman grill instant hotdog in a "bun" cook the dog first of course.

Kraft now sells their powdered cheese for the Mac and Cheese in a parmesan cheese style container... in fact, just last night I made Tinkyada elbow noodles with the cheese sauce made from the Kraft cheese powder, just add butter and milk just like the Kraft boxes... I have tons left over and it's even better reheated the next day!

Nini,

Thank you so much for sharing this! I found the cheese at Walmart and had wonderful mac n cheese last night. This was something that I really missed. I tried the Annie's and DeBoles and didn't like either of those. I am so excited about this.

So what just melt the velveta and mix?

when I drain and rinse the noodles, I melt some butter in the bottom of the pan, then I mix in Velveeta cut into small cubes and a little bit of milk and mix it til it's all melty and creamy, then I add the noodles back in and mix it all up.

I have to laugh....I really am glad you like it. But it definitely shows that different tastes work for different people. In public I would have to say, "No thank you. I wouldn't care for any."

So is the Chreese not worth it? I bought some last night and was exicted to have dairy free Mac N Cheese!

it's all in your individual taste... some people like it, other's don't. personally I don't, but you might! Give it a try, if you can't have dairy, it may be just fine for you.
