I would  like to make my own chicken tenders.  I usually used ww flour with cornmeal and spices. what would be a good sub for the ww flour?  I have coconut flour and almond flour, would one of those work?

Try Potato starch or Potato flour. The other thing I have used is Gluten Free Corn Flakes, just crush them in a plastic bag. Also marinade the chicken in buttermilk. The coating sticks better.

Sounds totally crazy but works great.  I take plain white rice and grind it in my blender to make a fine rice flour.  I dip the chicken in egg and then into the ground rice and fry in olive oil.  Works great with fish too.

White rice flour makes an excellent coating.

I made them with a mixture of rice flour and crushed doritos. Try them with any gluten-free chip or cereal. You could try several different "flour" coatings, just put mixtures in small bowls to see what flavors you like. Then fry and taste test...yum! I was just watching a cooking show on TV, and they were making them. They said to put a little baking soda in the flour mixture to help them brown better.

Not sure if this is what you are looking for exactly but I made awesome Extra Crispy chicken over the weekend.

 

All I did was dip the chicken in egg beaten with milk and then into  all purpose gluten-free flour that I seasoned to taste and then dipped it back into the egg mixture, then iback into the flour.

 

Its a little goopy this way but if you get enough flour on the second time, it stops being runny.  But your hands get all doughy :P

 

Then I deep fried the chicken and the coating was nicely crispy.

 

If you are looking for more of a panko type coating, I woudl suggest getting a gluten-free corn flake cereal and cruching it up however fine you want to.  I used natures path but found it to be a little sweet for coatingbut it wasn't horrible.  It would be better if I could find a cereal that was not sweetened but the selection is not good where i am.

I do chicken tenders coated with equal parts Potato Buds and grated Locatelli Romano cheese and lightly drizzled with olive oil.

We usually mix almond and coconut flour with a little bit of rice flour, and rice chex crunched up, gluten free rice krispies work well too, we marinate the chicken in lemon and then egg, flour mix, egg, flour mix

If you bread it twice it comes up crispier( my father in law owned a Chinese restuarant for 20+ yrs and said secret to crispy even coating is double coat)

I recently saw a cooking show where they used corn flakes for an extra crispy coating, and it wasn't even specifically for gluten-free anything. Another recipe, they used cornstarch.

I have tried the ian panko and gluten-free bisquick on chicken -- both were good, but since I have to omit egg, neither was particularly crispy

I took some leftover bread and grated it w/ a box grater so the "shards" were pretty big. Then I toasted it all and have what I think is gluten-free panko.

I use gluten-free cornflakes all the time (every gluten eater I've ever fed them to, raves about them) - I always felt it was missing something and was constantly playing with the spices.  I then found a recipe in which you mix mayo and parm cheese in a bowl and coat the chicken (or pork chops, my favorite) with that first, then the crushed cornflakes.  Bake and enjoy!  Something about the combination is heavenly.  Ok, now I'm hungry.  I use gluten-free cornflakes as a topping for my vegetable casserole too - they are a staple in my house.

    • This all makes me want to break out my ic maker and see if I can recall how to use it. Very inspirational!
    • Has he had a recent blood test for Celiac?  That would be where I would start. If it is still negative, I would look for other things, like a FODMAP issue.
    • My son (age 7, almost 8) has had GI issues for several years.  Almost 2 years ago (about a week after he turned 6), we had him tested for celiac and his blood test results were negative.  His test results were:  tTG IgA:  1; Immunoglobin A:  129.  I've read that false negative results do occur, but that typically it is an IgA deficiency that causes false negative tTg IgA results, and my son was not IgA deficient according to this blood test.  But his symptoms (some of which ebb and flow but which have been getting worse the last several months, include the following: --Complaints of tummy pain and nausea --Excess gas, bloating --Stools often look abnormal:  mucous in stool, often very bulky stools, gassy, explosive bowel movements, etc. --Extremely low BMI (He has always been below the 3rd percentile for weight, with height in the 50-75th percentile, but at his check-up in January (age 7.5), he fell off his height curve (weighed 42 pounds and measured 48.5 inches)  --Oral health issues:  He not infrequently complains of canker sores; At dentist visit a couple weeks ago, they discovered 4 cavities (This was the first time he allowed x-rays to be taken).   There may be some discoloration of his teeth as well, but I'm not 100% sure it the same kind of enamel defect I've read about.  I did not think to ask dentist about celiac at the time but I've since read about connections between oral health and celiac.  --weird blood test results:  I went back and looked at the blood tests that were taken 2 years ago, and it turns out some of the abnormal results can be linked to celiac.  For example:  Low cholesterol (Total Cholesterol was 114), which I read can be linked to malabsorption of fats caused by celiac; High Asbolute Eosinophils (result:  791; normal range is 15-600).  And Lo and behold, according to google, high eosinophils can be associated with celiac.  He also had low MPV results and high triglycerides.  Not sure what those mean.  Some of the abnormal results (like the eosinophils) are also linked to allergies (he has seasonal allergies), and to other auto-immune diseases -- we have a family history of ulcerative colitis so that is also a concern.  We tried a gluten fee diet for about a month several months ago, but I don't think it was ever 100% gluten free -- there were several times we were tripped up by school or after school snacks, and meals when traveling.  Prior to the time we tried the gluten-free diet, my son was not really complaining about his tummy troubles (they have ebbed and flowed --over the last several years, there have been period where sometimes 3-5 times a week he has bouts of nausea and pain, and months long periods with very few complaints).  At the time we tried a gluten-free diet, he was probably in one of the months long periods of feeling pretty good, few complaints.  My recollection is we dropped the gluten-free diet because we didn't see a big difference.   But my son recently told me he felt a little better on the gluten-free diet. I'm pretty sure the next step is to do the endoscopy/colonoscopy.  The GI doctor suggested this last year, given our family history of ulcerative colitis and unexplained symptoms, but we were hesitant to put him through this when, at the time, he was feeling pretty good.  But his symptoms have come roaring back the last several months, and at this point, we just want to find the answer.  We will plan to wait to restart a gluten-free diet until after the endoscopy.  So my questions: --Does anyone have experience with a false negative blood test result, particularly in children? --How bad is the endoscopy procedure?  What should we expect during the prep and after the procedure? --Any insight into what his symptoms mean?  
    • Once upon a time, bananas were thought by many doctors to possess tremendous healing properties. Bananas were used to help diabetics to use weight. Doctors told mothers to feed bananas to their infants starting at 4 weeks. And for a long time, the diet seemed to help people "recover" from celiac disease. Invented by Dr. Sidney Haas in 1924, the high-calorie, banana-based diet excluded starches, but included bananas, milk, cottage cheese, meat and vegetables. View the full article
    • You've opened up a great discussion here, peterfc.  Most illuminating.   I remember when I lived in Oz back in the 1980s there were three frozen custard outlets around Sydney.  I think, from memory, they only sold about three flavours - vanilla (plain), strawberry and chocolate.  But the ice cream was absolutely delicious.   I think ice cream made with a custard is a great way to enhance the nutritional value of the stuff - and possibly reduce the fat content to boot?  Brilliant.
