What’s For Dinner? Honey Garlic Chicken Bites!

Why We Love It

Chinese night is a staple in our house, and this dish adds another item to the menu!

Ingredients – Chicken

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Ingredients – Sauce

  • ½ cup honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce (like San-J)
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce (you can use less if you like)
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Lightly coat a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper. In another bowl, beat the eggs. Working in batches, dip chicken into eggs and then the breadcrumbs.
  4. Add chicken to prepared baking dish. Place into oven and bake until golden brown and crisp, about 15-20 minutes.
  5. In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, combine honey, garlic, soy sauce, and Sriracha sauce. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and ⅓ cup water. Stir mixture into the saucepan until thickened, about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Once chicken is cooked, toss the chicken in the sauce. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.
  7. Enjoy!

Tips

  • To make your own crispy gluten-free breadcrumbs, put a few slices of gluten-free bread through the food processor and then toast them in the oven for a few minutes. This is an especially good way to use up the ends of bread!
  • Serve this dish with gluten-free chicken fried rice for a total takeout experience.

What’s For Dinner? Hearty Quinoa Salad!

Why We Love It

This dish is very filling and healthy. It’s also fast and easy to prepare, making it perfect for busy weekday nights and holidays. If you’re intimidated by cooking quinoa, don’t worry! This recipe makes it easy.

Ingredients per Serving

  • ½ cup quinoa
  • 1 cup gluten-free chicken broth (Pacific is our favourite brand)
  • Salt and pepper to taste (particularly if you’re using a reduced-sodium broth)
  • ½ to 1 cup vegetables (such as cucumber, tomatoes, corn, peppers, onions, avocado, asparagus, etc.)
  • Approximately two tablespoons olive oil-based salad dressing (like Kraft Extra Virgin Olive Oil Pesto Parmesan)
  • Two tablespoons of crumbled goat’s cheese or feta (optional but very nice)

Method

  1. Wash quinoa thoroughly. (A metal coffee filter is great for this.)
  2. Mix quinoa and chicken broth in a small pot. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
  3. Bring quinoa and chicken broth to a boil. Then, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for about 15 minutes until liquid is absorbed.
  4. While quinoa is cooking, prepare vegetables (peel, slice, cook, etc.). Small pieces work best with this dish.
  5. Allow quinoa to cool for about 15 minutes, if you have time.
  6. In a large bowl, mix quinoa, prepared vegetables, and dressing. Top with cheese (if using) just before serving.

Tips

  • Always read the labels to make sure your ingredients are gluten-free.
  • You can use 100% quinoa or a quinoa-rice blend for this recipe.
  • For a complete meal, grill a chicken breast or fish fillet and serve on top of the salad.

Fast Fruity Delight

I saw this recipe on Kraft Canada’s website the other day, and it immediately grabbed my attention. Not only is it gluten-free and vegetarian, but if you use a dairy-free whipped topping substitute, it can be lactose-free too! Also, its light, fruity texture will be fantastic for summer.

Here is my version of Fast Fruity Delight.
