Add garlic, chopped onion, and chicken to crock pot. In medium size bowl whisk together fajita seasoning, chicken broth, and soy sauce together and pour over chicken.

When done serve over Gluten Free pasta or rice.  Garnish: Chopped Fresh Green onions and your favorite Cheese.

When ready to bake preheat oven to 375*. Wash and core bell peppers. Then slice them into 1 inch squares. Peel onion and slice into 1 inch square chunks.

When all kabobs are together and in baking pan, pour marinade over meat and vegetables. Bake uncovered for 40- 45 minutes or until meat is cooked through. Server warm! Enjoy!

Gluten Free Garlic Chicken with Honey Garlic Sauce

IMG_1982

Gluten Free Garlic Chicken with Honey Garlic Sauce

3 Eggs

4 additive free boneless skinless Chicken Breasts

2 Cups finely crushed GF Corn Chex Cereal (you can use rice Chex if you prefer)

1/2 Teaspoon additive free, msg free Seasoning Salt

1 Teaspoon additive free Garlic Powder

1 Teaspoon additive free ground Paprika

Preheat oven to 375*F.

Wash and cut up chicken into 1-2 inch cubes. In a large mixing bowl beat whole eggs , add chicken pieces and fold into the eggs coating them well. In zip lock bag mix crushed chex, seasoning salt, garlic powder, and paprika, whisk together well in bag. Lift each cube of chicken out of eggs, letting it drain some of the excess egg off back into the bowl as you lift. Then place chicken into cereal mixture, coating several pieces at a time. Place all of the coated chicken onto a large greased cookie sheet ( I use a stone ware cookie sheet, because it browns so much better than metal.) Bake for 25 – 30 minutes or until crisp. (You can flip the pieces over half way through cooking time if you want, but it is not necessary)  I like to cut into the largest piece of chicken just to make sure it is done.

Honey Garlic Sauce

1 Tablespoon GF Oil

4 Tablespoons minced Garlic ( if you use the already minced garlic in the jar, make sure it is GF)

1/2 Cup Pure Honey

1/2 Cup GF Soy Sauce ( I used  Kikkoman’s GF)

In medium sauce pan add oil , and minced garlic. On medium heat toast garlic stirring until lightly brown. Turn heat up to medium high and add honey and soy sauce, stirring continually. Let it come to a boil and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, while you are still stirring. Turn off heat and let it set until chicken is done. It will thicken as it cools. When chicken is done, place chicken on a platter or in a large bowl and drizzle sauce over chicken and serve!
