We are sad to see the end of April, which means the end of our daily GF/CF kid-friendly recipes from our wonderful guest bloggers. We appreciate all of the work that each blogger put into making our blog truly special for National Autism Awareness Month. Each recipe can be found under the Autism, Recipes, and Gluten Free category or accessed using these same tags in the tag cloud to the right (you can also select the tags “casein free” and “guest posts”). Thank you for coming along with us on this journey!
When you are on a diet as restricted as a gluten free diet can feel, it’s important to keep those classic dishes that make you feel like a kid. One of my favorites is a dish kids love as much as I do, chicken strips and sweet potato fries. The dish is incredibly simple to make, and you will have some fun making it.
Chicken Strips & Sweet Potato Fries
- 1lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
- 1-1/2 cups Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
- 1/2 cup gluten free bread crumbs
- 2 tsp spice blend ( I use Mrs. Dash table blend)
- 2 eggs
- 1 gallon size Ziploc bag
- 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into fries
- Olive Oil
- Kosher Salt
- Deep Fryer heated to 350 degrees or pan with oil heated on medium
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the sweet potato fries on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with Kosher salt. Put in the oven for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, stir the fries around to give them a chance to crisp on both sides. Put back in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes.
Break 2 eggs into a bowl and beat, creating an egg wash. Set aside. Mix flour, bread crumbs, and spice blend in the Ziploc bag. Take the chicken strips one at a time and dip into the egg wash. Make sure to coat the chicken completely. Place the egg coated chicken into the Ziploc bag.
When all the chicken is in the Ziploc bag, close the bag and shake until the chicken is completely coated with the flour blend. Place the chicken strips into the fryer or oil for about 6 minutes. They will come out of the oil golden and crispy. Only fry four to five strips at a time. Let cool just a bit and enjoy!
