Gluten Free Goodness: American style ‘Fried Chicken’

Gorgeous Gluten Free American style fried Chicken

This is fast becoming one of my favourite ways to enjoy chicken without the gloop of Gluten looming over me.
I have been trying out a FODMAPs diet for my Intestinal illness, and cutting down on lots of my favourite foods was a scary thought, but it’s surprisingly easier than I thought (I do slip now and again I will admit!)
I know that Gluten free is a popular option as of late, not only due to intolerances but also due to health benefits. It’s no secret that it affects the gut and bowel in negative ways causing bloating and wind amongst many other not so delightful problems!
Give this a whirl as a little indulgent evening meal, or a night on the couch nibble, it’s so good!

chi

Serves 2
2 small Chicken breasts
4 tbsp Gluten free flour
200ml milk
1 egg

Coating
300g Maize
½ tsp Smoked Paprika
½ tsp Cayenne pepper
1 tbsp chopped fresh Dill
1 tbsp chopped fresh Chives
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
Pinch garlic powder
Pinch of white pepper and salt

Method
Slice the chicken breast into slivers of equal size.
In three separate bowls:
1- add the flour and season lightly
2- add the eggs and the milk and whisk well with 1 tsp of the flour
3- mix all the coating ingredients together

Cover the slivers of chicken in the flour, then place in the egg wash.
Coat well and then finally add to the maize coating and coat well.
Fry in hot oil (170′c) for approx 4-5 minutes (this will depend on the thickness that you cut them) and then place on a sheet of kitchen towel to remove excess oil.
Serve with a little sweet chilli mayo and a chunky salad.

Tip: You can ‘Oven fry’ these strips too, just follow the method of coating but then place on a tray (covered in parchment) and spray with a low fat cooking spray.
Cook until golden brown and cooked through.
