Gluten-Free Chicken Entrees

I believe that people looking for "Gluten-Free" recipes forget that there are many entrée dishes that are GF.  Or that can be slightly modified to become gluten-free.  Many of these may not be a dish you can get children to eat.  But it is still good to introduce them to these foods.

This week's two recipes are good for everyone and help with that introduction to children.  Both of the dishes use grilled or sautéed boneless skinless chicken breasts that have only been salted and peppered.  Tomorrow's recipe of "Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce" comes with a sauce to top it.  Thursday's "Chicken with Pineapple Salsa" recipe is topped with a somewhat spicy salsa.  You could skip the jalapeno in it and the heat would be gone.  This could make it more acceptable to children.

The recipes both call for chicken breasts.  However, you could use boneless skinless chicken thighs if you prefer.  They will take a little longer to cook but work well with each.

I know most of you don't live in Minnesota but I have a little info that might help all of you.  We have found a great restaurant in the suburb of Burnsville, MN.  It is on the Southside of Minneapolis, MN.  The name and address is "Ernie's Pub & Grille" at 14351 Nicollet Court, Burnsville, MN 55306.  www.erniespub.com  They serve very good gluten-free food.  Sunday offers a brunch with both GF and regular food.  They are very conscious of making sure there is no "Cross-Contamination" with the gluten-free food.  The breads and buns they use in the operation are some of the best we have found.

Now many of you won't be able to take advantage of this establishment.  However, you just need to look for restaurants in your area to ask questions of the management.  We have another great restaurant in Rochester, MN that has a dedicated kitchen for GF food they serve.  Their name is "Twigs" and have excellent food for both GF and regular diners.

So "Happy Cooking" and enjoy these recipes.  Then share with others the link for this food blog.  Thanks.
