10 Easy Recipes

Recommended Posts

Hello,

A woman at church just had both knees operated on and will be home from the hospital next week.

Her son is celiac and the women of our church will be providing meals for them for a couple of weeks.

I'm looking for easy recipes for dinners that are pretty fail safe for non celiac people to make. The only 2 I can think of are lasagna and tacos. (I will include safe brands in the recipes)

Any easy suggestions?

Here's my 2 favorite slow cooker chicken recipes:

1 Salsa chicken

Take 2 cans each black beans and corn. Drain them. Mix them together at the bottom of the slow cooker.

Put 6-8 boneless skinless chicken thighs on top of that

Layer 1-2 jars of your favorite salsa (I use Trader Joe's peach, but Paul Newman's peach or mango might be good too)

Turn it on low for the day and forget about it...

1/2 hour before serving put a brick of low fat or regular cream cheese on top and let it melt.

It freezes well and makes a great leftover.

2. Feta Artichoke chicken

Take a mess of boneless skinless chicken thighs and layer them at the bottom of the slow cooker. sprinkle them with about 1/4 cup red wine, so it's just up to the tops. Salt and pepper them.

Dump in about 3/4 jar of classico tomato and sweet basil tomato sauce over the top.

drain and rough chop 1 can of artichokes and water and dump that on the top.

Turn it on low for the day and forget about it for about 8 hours.

Serve with crumbled feta on top. It's YUMMY.

1. Roast chicken and baked potatoes

-Simply bake a whole chicken at 350 for 1-1/2 hours. You can season it with salt, garlic powder, rosemary or whatever herbs or spices sound good. Bake potatoes for the last hour along with it. Wrap the chicken up in foil, place in a foil lined box and wrap the potatoes in separate foil for easy transport.

2. Enchilada Chicken and rice

-Saute chicken breast tenderloins in a bit of olive oil until no pink remains on the outside. Pour on a can of gluten-free enchilada sauce and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve with rice. Top with cheese and sour cream if desired. Travels well in a foil container with a lid - dump in the rice, spoon the chicken and sauce over the top.

I have more, but I'm in a hurry. Many kind of meatballs are easy to make and easy to adapt to gluten-free.

If anyone makes meatloaf or meatballs, make sure they have gluten-free bread crumbs (or other gluten-free filler). What about pork chops with escalloped potatoes. Brown the chops. Make escalloped potatoes with a gluten-free cream sauce. Put in dish large enough to put chops on top. Put a little sauce on top of chops, cover, and bake about an hour. Chicken cooked in gluten-free salsa sauce served with rice is easy.

bakes ziti with gluten-free pasta is easy and good, plus they can freeze what they don't eat...tater tot casserole with Progesso cream of mushroom soup, is very good and easy.

tater tot casserole: 1 bag of frozen tater tots, diced onion, 1 can progresso cream of mushroom soup..1 lb. hamburger..fry up the hamburger with the diced onion in it..pour the cream of mushroom soup into the hamburger mixture, then over the frozen tater tots bake at 350 for about 20 to 30 minutes or until tots are done. I use a casserole dish to bake this in.

Chili can be done easily in the crockpot and can be as mild or spicy as you like. Start with some ground beef or cooked, diced chicken or steak. Add a can or three of kidney beans, or whatever other kind of beans you like. I sometimes do three different kinds of beans. Add a can of corn if you like, and a large jar of salsa. Heat through. Garnish with shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, cilantro, black olives, and corn chips.

Chicken (also can use beef) Noodle soup

Brown chunks of chicken breast (or stew beef) in a large pot

Add chicken (or beef) broth (I use kitchen basics) and water (equal amounts)

add small chunks of carrots and boil 30 mins (carrots about 1/2 done)

add small chunks of potato, boil 5 min (taters about 1/2 done)

add cans of any veggie that tickles your tummy (corn, peas, beans, lima beans and carrots if you didnt do fresh)

Add gluten free noodles, narrow is best, dont need much just so the noodles thicken up the liquid remaining, I use hoffners narrow noodles for mine and its great!


Just my .00000002 cents worth

If I knew what I was doing years ago I would have half a clue today!

I just made your feta artichoke chicken (but I forgot to put the feta on top!) in a rice cooker b/c I didn't have the time to use my crock pot - just dumped it all in the rice cooker and turned on cook - it never turned itself off automatically like it does with rice, so after about 45min. I checked it and it was done - perfect and juicy! Just thought I'd let people know for those days they need a quick(er) option :)

Meatballs in gravy, had this for dinner last night oh so good

1 to 2 lbs. hamburger

2 eggs

fresh garlic

mustard

bread crumbs ( used 2 slices of bread crumbled in the hands )

liquid amino

tomatoes ( I used about 1/2 a dozen cherry tomatoes sliced up small )

Mix all together role into balls fry. When done remove from pan drain grease.

Using same pan make a gravy. I used,

Scrape bottom of pan add hot water

beef bouillon ( I used 4 or 5 cubes )

corn starch

salt and pepper to taste

Put your meatballs in gravy and let sit to reheat ( about 1/2 hour )

Mashed potatoes, I put in butter, milk. and if you want a little kick add some horse radish.

corn ( we like frozen rather then caned )

You can also fix the meat the same as you would a meatloaf form into meatballs. My ingredients are never the same as I never follow a recipe for this kind of cooking. Then if you have left overs you can have a killer meatloaf sandwich the next day.

Sorry if this has already been suggested, but I have made a spagetti pie/casserole succesfully gluten-free, and it's great as a pot luck, covered dish to take to a sick friend or mom who just had a baby, etc.

I used Paula Deen's Baked Spagetti Recipe:

(The only substitution I made was with Tinkayade pasta, I used fettucini. Once I made it with jarred tomato sauce instead, I used Amy's gluten-free Family Marinara)

2 cups canned diced tomatoes

2 cups tomato sauce

1 cup water

1/2 cup diced onion

1/2 cup diced green bell pepper

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves

1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

1 1/2 teaspoons House Seasoning, recipe follows

1 1/2 teaspoons seasoning salt

1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

2 small bay leaves

1 1/2 pounds ground beef

8 ounces uncooked angel hair pasta

1 cup grated cheddar

1 cup grated Monterey Jack

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a stockpot, combine the tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, onions, peppers, garlic, parsley, seasoning mixtures, sugar, and bay leaves. Bring to a boil over high heat, and then reduce the heat and let simmer, covered, for 1 hour. Crumble the ground beef in a large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until fully cooked, with no pink color remaining. Drain the fat from the meat, and then add the ground beef to the stockpot. Simmer for 20 more minutes. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Cover the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch pan with sauce. Add a layer of pasta and then a little less than 1/2 of each cheese; repeat the layers, ending with the sauce. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Top the casserole with the remaining cheese, return it to the oven, and continue to cook until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 5 more minutes. Cut into squares before serving.

House Seasoning:

1 cup salt

1/4 cup black pepper

1/4 cup garlic powder

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Hi gluten-free mom,

I am making your salsa chicken recipe for the second time and have to say it is soooo good! It is so easy and tasty. I am dairy free as well, so I used tofutti cream cheese instead of regular and it turns out great served over brown rice. Thanks!!

Terri :)
