Chicken Parmesan has to be one of the easiest and tastiest ways of preparing chicken, don’t you agree?
In this version we first get started on a simple homemade tomato sauce with crushed tomatoes, garlic, basil, and oregano (though you could easily use already prepared sauce).
While the sauce is simmering we take boneless chicken cutlets, breast or thigh meat, dredge them first in a mustardy coating, then in Parmesan tossed breadcrumbs (we like panko), and bake!
These shredded chicken taquitos are a regular part of our dinner rotation, and one of the first recipes I turn to when I need a quick appetizer. They’re naturally gluten free, too!
If I had to pick one food ethnicity to eat forever and ever, it would easily be Mexican food. I’ve visited Mexico many times in my life (although not for years) and ate plenty of it in Southern California a few years ago.
I am certain that there are plenty of gaps in my knowledge of Mexican food, but I think if it’s mostly corn-based, has some heat to it, and is in the neighborhood of enchiladas, burritos, and tacos, it’s Mexican. And the fact that Mexican food tends to lend itself to bite-sized eating and eating-on-the-go, there are plenty of Mexican dishes in my cookbook that this recipe comes from, Gluten-Free Small Bites.
I do know that taquitos and flautas are quite similar, in that they’re tortillas stuffed with filling and baked or fried. Taquitos are traditionally made with corn tortillas, and flautas with flour tortillas. But mostly, I’m just looking for great food that’s simple to make and pleases everyone in my family, and from time to time a guest.
These chicken taquitos fit the bill. The heat ✓comes entirely from the chopped green chiles, but you can of course modify that. Or add some chipotle chili powder to the onions as they cook down. Corn tortillas? ✓ Plus, they’re delicious and satisfying—and can easily be made in stages or almost entirely ahead of time.
The chicken can be made ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen in a sealed container. Defrost overnight in the refrigerator before using.
The taquitos themselves can also be assembled completely, secured with toothpicks, then frozen in a single layer on a baking sheet before being transferred to a freezer-safe container and frozen.
Defrost overnight in the refrigerator, then place in a baking dish, brush with oil and bake as directed. Once baked, they are best eaten right away.
Ingredients and Substitutions
Heat. If you take one look at the can of chopped mild green chiles that this recipe calls for and roll your eyes at my wimpy palate, remember that I have young children. Besides, you can always substitute spicier canned green chiles for my mild ones.
Tortillas. You can make these with store-bought corn tortillas, which is something I often do, but freshly made corn tortillas make all the difference in these lightly spiced roll-ups.
Dairy. The one tablespoon of unsalted butter used, along with olive oil, to sauté the garlic and onions. It can easily be replaced with another tablespoon of oil. The cheese is another matter entirely, but as I currently have one dairy-free child, I’ve been experimenting with a lot of dairy-free cheeses.
My absolute favorite dairy free cheese remains meltable vegan mozzarella by Miyoko Schinner. But since I haven’t always gone through the trouble of making it, I often use Daiya block cheese. I find that it melts better (with some serious heat) than the already-shredded variety, and it’s pretty widely available. I have always loved the Follow Your Heart brand of vegan cheeses, but they can be difficult to find.
The melted cheese really does help keep these taquitos together after baking. Since dairy free cheese doesn’t tend to melt as well as traditional cheese, if you’re using it, I recommend cinching them together with a single toothpick through the center of each before baking. It won’t burn in the oven, I promise!

Popcorn chicken is nothing more than bite-sized pieces of breaded white meat chicken made extra tender with a secret, simple step, and baked to crispy perfection. Don’t forget the spicy sriracha mayo!
*Keep reading for a how-to video just above the recipe.*
I remember when KFC first introduced popcorn chicken in the 1990s in the U.S. served in a tall, striped container. Like movie popcorn. So naturally, I assumed that it was chicken covered in popcorn. 🤓
Now, I love me some tender, juicy, deep-fried KFC chicken. But what if you could have spicy KFC-style popcorn chicken that was just as tender, and make it naturally gluten free—in the oven?
The secret to tender chicken
When I was a kid, we used to go to this greasy spoon restaurant in New York City’s China Town. The meals were epic, but my favorite part was always the incredible tenderness of the boneless chicken pieces. Well, that and the rice candy we’d get at the Chinese grocers after dinner.
I never thought I could make chicken as tender as that at home. That is, until now. The secret to making the most tender boneless chicken is a super simple technique called “velveting.” All velveting requires is soaking the chicken in a mixture of liquid and cornstarch.
Soaking the chicken in the cornstarch slurry creates a heat barrier that’s similar to what happens in deep frying. It seals the outside of the chicken, protecting it from direct heat. The high heat of the oven (or the oil in deep frying) can then cook the food quickly without drying it out.
Ingredients and Substitutions
I have some ideas about substitutions. Some are just an educated guess, others I’ve actually tried:
Dairy: You can replace the sour cream in the Sriracha mayo with more mayonnaise. It still tastes quite good, but the flavor is just a bit flat. Try adding a teaspoonful of mild vinegar for some tang. The chicken is already dairy-free.
Eggs: The cornstarch slurry in this recipe is made with egg whites, which is the traditional way to “velvet” chicken. It helps the cornflake crumbs to stick to the chicken, and helps seal in moisture. If you can’t have egg whites, try aquafaba (or chickpea brine) in its place. Let us know how it goes!
Corn: If you can’t have corn, the cornflakes are out and so is the cornstarch. Try using potato starch in place of cornstarch, and crushed baked potato chips (they’re not greasy like traditional fried potato chips; I like Lay’s brand) in place of the cornflakes.

Easy Chicken Chili Time
New Year's Day looms. Ah, the annual parades. The glut of bowl games. The feast of football. Pigskin is king. Tight ends are tightening. Quarterbacks are quarterbacking. And kickers are praying to the football gods they won't be called in for a chip-shot, with 6 seconds to spare in the final quarter. Do I sound like I know what I am talking about? I don't. I just overheard some manly sporty banter over gluten-free tuna melts. To which I smiled politely.
And reached for a pickle.
Even after watching every episode of Friday Night Lights, I still don't understand a down. Football is a mystery. Back fields in motion. Penalties! Off sides. Snap. Blitz. Gotta love the lingo. It's a language alluringly foreign to me. Like math.
Or for some, perhaps it's akin to say… abstract expressionism.
Visual chaos executed in angles and arcs and bursts of focus, drive and energy.
The air is cooling here in Oklahoma and all I dream about are warm, comfort foods. Does that happen to anyone else? Literally, when fall arrives, I could spend my days between the kitchen and the outdoors, it’s just so beautiful.
That’s exactly what happened this past weekend; I decided that we were going to have a helping of Creamy Chicken Noodles served with homemade mashed potatoes.
The tricky part though being that it needed to be gluten-free. Now, this may make the traditional Creamy Chicken Noodles recipe a bit more time consuming because being gluten-free you will need to make your own egg noodles, but it’s completely worth it.
It turns out so delicious and these noodles are great to use in a variety of meals including my Gluten Free Chicken & Noodle Soup.
My not gluten-free eaters even loved this meal, that’s always a bonus in our home. The thing to remember is that you may need to add a bit of gluten-free all-purpose flour to help thicken this depending on the cream soup that you use.
I decided to use a canned Gluten-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup, it tends to be a bit more runny than a gluten-filled version, so I added about a 1/4 cup of gluten-free all-purpose flour to help thicken it up a bit. It turned out beautifully and tasted scrumptious!
I love to mix our Creamy Chicken Noodles with mashed potatoes; it’s almost like eating mashed potatoes and gravy. This is definitely a traditional country meal and one that my husband grew up on.
I’m positive his grandma likely made her own egg noodles too. I have to say, although it takes a bit longer doing homemade egg noodles, but it’s just such a calming process. I’m sure that may make me a bit crazy but something about making my own noodles just puts me in a good mood.
Now, it’s time to cozy up by the fire and enjoy a plate of Creamy Chicken Noodles, we all know you’ve been craving them!
For the Noodles:
1 cup all-purpose gluten free flour, plus more for rolling dough
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cooked shredded chicken
2 cans gluten free cream of mushroom soup
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup all-purpose gluten free flour, optional
To Make the Noodles:
- Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl, then make a well in the center and add in the eggs.
- Using a fork combine the eggs into the flour mixture until slightly sticky.
- Roll out the dough on a floured surface, adding in more flour if necessary and knead for about 5 minutes, forming into a ball.
- Cover the dough ball with plastic wrap and place this in the fridge for at least 15 minutes, but up to 24 hours.
- Remove the dough from the fridge and roll out until about 1/4″ thick, then cut them to the width you prefer.
- Continue to add more flour if needed to avoid sticking and cut them. Place each noodle on a plate or in a pan.
- Let them sit uncovered for 1 hour until they have dried out.
To make the Creamy Chicken:
- Once the noodles are done, add the noodles, chicken, cream of mushroom soup, and butter to a large stockpot or French oven.
- Cover and let them warm up to a low boil.
- At this point, if the soup you used is more of a runny consistency, carefully whisk in the flour to thicken it, and then let this boil for 20-25 minutes.
- Serve as is, or over mashed potatoes.

A few weeks ago I learned about
, a meal-kit service that sends prepped, fresh, and organic ingredients to help you make a healthy meal for yourself or the whole family. When the opportunity to review a free week of Terra’s Kitchen, I jumped on it. I was intrigued because although I know many meal delivery services exist I never tried one. I am also probably the ideal candidate for a meal-kit service like Terra’s Kitchen because I am far from a gourmet cook. I don’t mind cooking, but I avoid elaborate recipes and don’t like all of the prep. All the chopping, dicing, mincing, and zesting takes a lot of time that I don’t always have during the week. I also tend to stick to cooking the same four or five dishes which are on a VERY heavy and boring rotation in our house. Trying my complimentary delivery of Terra’s Kitchen was a great way to try something new both in terms of convenience and flavor.
On the Terra’s Kitchen website, allergens such as gluten, dairy, nuts, and fish are clearly noted in each recipe. You can filter your selections based on your dietary needs and flavor preferences. I figured this was my opportunity to try something new so I chose a bison-based dish, a salmon dish, and a chicken dish. Believe it or not, I never cooked salmon and never ate bison so this was a new experience! All of the recipes I chose were labeled gluten-free on the website. I scheduled two-person, three-meal delivery and then waited for my package to arrive.
I think one of my favorite parts of this experience was when the Terra’s Kitchen package arrived. This thing was impressive. It was like a mini college fridge delivered right to my door. It is climate-controlled, easily returned, and is reusable up to 100 times. Everything arrived cold and fresh in this futuristic looking vessel, which is how Terra’s Kitchen refers to it in their online materials and return information. Bonus: The return shipping is paid for so all you have to do is put the empty vessel outside the next day before 8am and it disappears back into FedEx land!
After I got over the awe of the vessel, I unloaded all of the food and recipe cards from Terra’s Kitchen. All of the ingredients are labeled with a sticker that has a number that corresponds to the recipe card. This made your prep basically as easy as possible which was perfect for me! I loaded up the ingredients by recipe in my fridge for when I was ready to cook. I also ordered an extra salad and a Suja juice to round out my box.
Meal 1: Paprika-rubbed Salmon Tostadas with Avocado-Orange Salsa
Meal 2: One Skillet Bison Tacos
Meal 3: Strawberry-balsamic Chicken Thighs with Wilted Spinach-Quinoa
Add-on 1: Chopped Power Green Salad
Add-on 2: Suja Mighty Greens juice*
* I didn’t end up drinking the juice because I didn’t realize one of the ingredients is barley grass which I do not personally consume.
The ingredients were very fresh, everything was pre-washed and chopped, and the recipes were fool proof. Each recipe card included the kitchen equipment you will need, the additional ingredients you will need, and what was sent in the vessel. The only ingredients that weren’t included in the meal kit but are readily available in my kitchen were olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, and canola oil.
Out of the three meals, the bison tacos were the top pick at our house. The dish was flavorful and it was really nice to eat something totally out of the ordinary (a direct quote from my man). It was good to change it up from our normal beef or turkey tacos. Also, the chipotle and sour cream mix was smokey but not too spicy which was good for my weak heat tolerance.
My fiancee really enjoyed the salmon, but I have never been a fan of fish so it was my least favorite. I did eat it because I cooked it, but heaped on the avocado-orange salsa to cut the salmon flavor. (Note, I NEVER liked fish so this really had nothing to do with TK and everything to do with my taste buds.) I would have never of thought to put avocados and oranges together so this recipe gave me a new idea that I will definitely use in the future. Oranges and avocados are abundant here in California. The chicken dish was good too, but we eat a lot of chicken at our house so it was fun to change it up. I will definitely make the quinoa with wilted spinach again. It was so good and I ate the leftovers for lunch the next day.
Terra’s Kitchen Parting Thoughts
Overall, I was very pleased with my first food box delivery experience from Terra’s Kitchen. I can’t emphasize enough how fresh all of the ingredients were and how nice it was that everything was prepped for me. The pre-preparation made meal prep so much quicker and easier. The only meal planning I had to do was to figure out which one I wanted to eat first. I also really liked that all of the ingredients on the packages were clearly labeled. There was one item that had a “May contain wheat, dairy, or nuts” statement but that was one out of about 20+ ingredients so I just skipped it. I think. Unfortunately, I forgot to make a note of it at the time and forget which ingredient. Lastly, we got to try three new dishes that I would have never thrown together on my own.
One thing I was a bit concerned about was the amount of individual packaging for the ingredients. Te recipe card actually did say the food containers are recyclable but they encourage people to “upcycle” them instead. Use them in the garden or get creative with other kitchen-based uses. I personally washed them out and recycled them all.
The Terra’s Kitchen meals range from $10.49 per serving up to $17.99 per serving for a meal that contains steak. While this might be a bit cost prohibitive for some, remember there is the time and convenience of it all that factor in to the price. You can order from Terra’s Kitchen one time or you can set up regular deliveries of meals that you choose each week. Terra’s Kitchen website is VERY user friendly and I found it simple to search for dishes, order, and schedule my delivery. We really enjoyed the new meals in our kitchen, the easy recipes, and the healthy and fresh ingredients, so Terra’s Kitchen gets a double thumbs up in our house.
