Unfortunately one of our number 1 rules is not to eat something if we don't know what is in it and don't know if the kitchen it was prepared in was safe. I know it's a pain to have to be that careful but that careful we have to be. You don't need to have gluten get all the way into your tummy to get glutened. Gluten can pass through our mucous membranes and just having taken into your mouth or respiratory track can gluten you. That is why we can't cook with gluten flours for others. When we breathe it in that is enough to cause a reaction. I hope you are feeling better soon.

I would say the tequilla and the wine were fine. What else though was on the chicken? This is the hard part of eating out and going to parties. If you are uncertain, don't take the chance. Could you also be sensative to something more than gluten? Like dairy, soy, high fructose. They can cause issues as well.

Just putting something in your mouth is enough to gluten you. You don't have to swallow it. Without asking you can't know if the chicken had some flour mixed in with the sauce or soy sauce with wheat in the tequila marinade. Also if there were a lot of things at the party that were gluteny you could get sick from cross contamination a bout a dozen ways. I have gone to a party and eaten only carrot sticks and nothing else and I got glutened. Found out later the carrots were cut on the same cutting board used to slice french bread for an appetizer. The hostess had also made a cake that day so flour was probably everywhere and there were platters with crackers on them near the veggie tray. when I thought about it I also realized that if the hostess put those crackers out first and then went to cut the veggies she probably did not wash her hands in between doing so. I may be among the super sensitive but I don't eat anything at parties anymore unless I either bring it myself or see it come directly out of a package I can read the ingredients on and I can get some before anyone else.
