Gluten free Chinese food!

I made a gluten free General Tso’s chicken, and am giving you the recipe to try for yourself. This simple recipe makes a quick and delicious dinner when paired with rice.

To make the chicken you will need 2-3 chicken breasts, cut into 1×1 pieces, then lightly seasoned with garlic. Leave the pieces on a plate and pour 1 cup of gluten free flour (Red’s is a popular brand) into a bowl. In a different bowl, whisk two raw eggs, and in a third bowl, crush 1.5 cups of gluten free corn flakes. Heat a small amount of oil (just enough to cover the bottom of your frying pan) while you head into the next step. (If using regular rice, start it at this time)

Take each piece of chicken and roll it in the flour, dip it in the egg, and roll it again in cornflakes. Place the breaded chicken onto the frying pan and cook until done (the corn flakes will be more brown), then remove them and place on a plate. (If using Minute Rice, start it at this time)

This next step requires a little customization on your part, along with a small jar of apricot jam, some red sweet chili sauce, and some SAN-J orange sauce (gluten free).  Pour half of the bottle into the pan in which you just cooked the chicken and let it heat up on low with the remaining oil left in the pan.  Spoon one to two teaspoons of jam into the pan (customize here), add some red sweet chili paste (customize here) until it’s just the sweet and spicy taste you love.  The SAN-J sauce is vinegary and needs the jam and chili sauce to complete the recipe (unless you looooove vinegar).

This is what the chicken should look like before topping the rice.

Once the sauce is to your liking, pour the chicken back in and shake the pan gently until every piece is coated.  Spoon the chicken and sauce over the rice and serve.  Simple!

Now, for the egg rolls…
