Gluten-Free Oven Fried Chicken
One of the things we've missed the most since we started doing a gluten-free diet was oven fried chicken. So last week I surprised my family with it...just a modified version of it. I substituted ground oatmeal (oat flour) for the flour and skipped dipping it in the milk and egg whites. It came out SO good! When it was all gone, the kids were still asking for more!
It is easy too - my favorite kind of recipe.
Put about 1/4 cup of butter in a baking dish and melt in the oven.
Grind in the blender about a cup of oatmeal, then mix the oatmeal with your favorite seasonings.
Roll your chicken strips in the oatmeal until thickly coated.
Place the chicken in your pan - coating both sides of the chicken with butter.
Bake on 425 for about 20 minutes - or until tender and white.
It's been exciting to be able to find recipes for my family that we enjoy, are healthy and that actually taste great. I've just had to be a little more creative. ;) I'm thinking about Thanksgiving over here and excited to try a green bean casserole with this type of topping on onions. Now, if only to find a substitute for stuffing...
