For the past week, I’ve been taking care of my step-dad who is a diagnosed celiac. My mom usually prepares his food, however my mom is on a lovely vacation in Asia with her friends – thus, I’m the one taking care of the cooking at home. As I had talked about before, my dad is a celiac which inspired this gluten-free recipe.
Let’s get cooking!
-6 chicken breasts
-2 tablespoon of butter
-Salt & pepper
-454 grams mushrooms
-5 cloves of minced garlic
-2 tablespoon glutinous rice flour
-1 cup chicken broth (no additional salt)
NOTE: Campbell’s Chicken Broth contains barley yeast extract****
Normally my mom cooks using this and my step-dad manages to tolerate it. However, depending on the severity of your celiac you might take a note of that. As a replacement, use any chicken broth or stock with a legit gluten free label such as the brand “Kitchen Basics”.
Thank you to Bronte Bowerman for catching this!
1.) Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Do both sides.
2.) In a non-stick pan, heat olive oil and start frying your chicken breasts. You want to create a nice sear and cook the chicken thoroughly. Cook the chicken breasts for 20-25 minutes until a beautiful sear has been achieved. Temperature of the chicken must reach 160-165 degrees Celsius to ensure it has been cooked well.
3.) Remove chicken off the pan once it has been cooked. Clean the pan to prepare for the mushroom sauce.
4.) Melt butter, then add mushrooms to cook.
5.) While the mushrooms are cooking, mince the garlics. Then add the garlics into the pan.
6.) Sauté together for 3-4 minutes.
7.) Add flour and stir.
8.) Add 1 cup of chicken broth into the pan. Let it simmer and stir until the sauce thickens. Simmer for 5 minutes. NOTE: Please check the ingredients of your chicken broth. Campbell’s contains barley yeast extract. As mentioned above, my step-dad doesn’t react too negatively with this product. This is just a warning to those who are hypersensitive to gluten.
9.) Place the chicken back into the pan with the sauce. OR plate the chicken and pour the sauce on top. Garnish with oregano and SERVE!
10.) EAT UP!!!
I hope you all enjoy this delicious recipe!!! I highly recommend eating this with rice! OR on its own, if you’re on a diet 🙂
