As we all know, being a celiac and dating can be quite difficult. I recommend cooking dinner for a date, that way you know what you are eating is 100% safe, and you also know that your date is eating gluten free as well, leaving the option for the goodnight kiss…
I had a date last week and decided to cook for the two of us. I don’t usually experiment with new recipes when I am cooking for others but I wanted to make orange chicken. I used to eat it all the time before I went gluten free and had been craving it. Here is the rough recipe, I highly recommend it, it turned out to be very tasty
Now when I cook I do not measure, so the measurements are rough estimates:
6 Chicken Cutlets
White Rice Flour (flour of your choice)
1 Egg (This is for the breading, you can use egg alternative)
Brown Rice Syrup
Red Pepper Flakes
Step 1: Bread the chicken cutlets.
Step 2: Put in pan with olive oil and green onions and let the chicken cook through
Step 3: Cut up chicken into bite size pieces
Step 4: Put in Agave Nectar (Around 3 tablespoons)
Step 5: Squeeze one orange into pan. Stir, let cook
Step 6: Put in brown rice syrup and a dash of sugar. I put in enough brown rice syrup to coat all the chicken once it is stirred in. Since brown rice syrup is not sweet the sugar really helps
Step 7: Brown so the chicken gets crispy, add the second orange and the red pepper flakes.
Step 8: I always serve this with white rice and sometimes shredded carrot and zucchini cooked with ginger and lime seasoning
I am telling you, this recipe is awesome! Very tasty. All my gluten eating friends love it, and my date was definitely a fan.
