Yesterday was Gluten Free and Dairy free. I also made dinner Egg free for my friends who have egg allergies.
We had Fried Chicken with Broccoli and Sweet Corn.
(I actually couldn’t eat, because I gorged myself on snacks all afternoon – all gluten free and dairy free-
I made a Pamela’s kitchen chocolate cake, and a coconut milk and powdered sugar glaze for the top, ate hummus and veggie chips and a plate full of fresh veggies along with some blueberries,and a fresh juice – beet, carrot, kale, chard & apple-)
I started with making my “breading”. I used corn meal, steak seasoning, sea salt, basil, oregano, garlic, and sage.
Then I got out 3 chicken breasts (I could’ve easily done more, but given the fact that I wasn’t hungry and the kids snacked all afternoon, we didn’t really need any more than that. This is one of those recipes that you make as much as you need..)
I tossed all the chicken to coat it with the breading mix, and heated the oil up for frying. I use about 1 cup of canola oil for frying foods, spread over the bottom of a 16″ skillet.
Lay each strip in the pan for approximately 5 minutes, flip and cook another 5 minutes. I keep my “done” chicken strips in the oven on warm until it’s all ready.
Prep your veggies and you’re done!
I could’ve also done a salad, rice pilaf, bean salad, or added a carrot and raisin salad to this to give it more substance, but as it was everyone had plenty and there were no complaints.
Today started off (miraculously) with a fresh, raw juice. I had beet, kale, chard, carrots, romaine lettuce, tomato, and an apple to juice.
Lunch will be leftover curry from yesterday for me, the kids will likely prefer some kind of snacky lunch like quesadillas and black bean dip.
(totally not gluten or dairy free for them!)
Dinner tonight is yet again a mystery (can you tell that I haven’t done meal planning in a while?) the menu says that we should have minestrone soup, and we may just do it, I have about 14 lbs of ground beef that we should be consuming…
Today- will NOT be gluten or dairy free for dinner 🙂
