I hunted for ages to find a gluten free Chinese chicken recipe to tantalise my taste buds yet meet my healthy eating requirements. I first started eating Chinese food as quite a young child, when my Dad would take us to a local Chinese restaurant to give my Mum a break from cooking for the family. In those days, it was quite different to eat Chinese! I remember the magic of the oriental themed restaurant with stiffly starched white table linen and the prawn crackers my brothers and I fought over. Then there were the waiters appearing with steaming platters piled high with glistening sweet and sour chicken (my Dad’s favourite) and fragrant, sticky rice. Good memories.
Now I eat gluten-free, I’ve had to train myself out of the sweet tooth I had for years, but do still love a bit of sweet and sour as a treat. Here’s the recipe I cook for my son …not a preservative in sight and I know it’s delicious because his school friends always ask for it when they visit for supper.
Preparation time: 20 minutes.
Total time: 1 hour
This gluten free Chinese chicken recipe looks and tastes wonderful served piping hot piled up on gluten-free cauliflower rice.
We always use chopsticks and funky little Chinese bowls. How do you like to serve yours?
