{Gluten-Free} Oven-Baked Chicken Over Waffles


I've joked that my boys think they live in a restaurant. But, sometimes, I realize that they practically do.

"Mom," requested the little Wom yesterday, "I'd like to have chicken and waffles for breakfast for your anniversary." Okay.


So, today, on my seventeenth wedding anniversary, I made him chicken and waffles. But I made them gluten-free so Jake could enjoy them, too.

I'm just going to share my recipe for the chicken as I used a gluten-free mix from Trader Joe's for the waffles...and the gravy was an afterthought that I threw together after I discovered that I forgot to pack the maple syrup. So, just use your favorite waffle recipe and your favorite gravy recipe. I'll share mine eventually.

Ingredients

  • ¾ C gluten-free baking mix (I used the blend from Trader Joe's)
  • ½ C grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1 t dried oregano
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins (approximately 10 tenderloins)
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3 T butter, melted
  • Also needed: waffles and gravy for serving

Procedure

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. In a medium size bowl mix together gluten-free baking mix, cheese, and oregano. In a smaller bowl, whisk the eggs. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Dip chicken into eggs then toss in flour mixture. Place it on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat for the remaining tenderloins. Drizzle melted butter over the chicken (approxmately  ½ tsp on each).

Bake for 10 minutes. Flip chicken and bake for an additional 8 minutes or until chicken is firm to the touch and no longer pink in the center.

To serve, place a waffle on your serving plate. Top with 2 tenderloins. Drizzle with gravy. Serve immediately.


It was a hit! Jake even declared, "Now I know why he orders this when we go out to brunch." I'll admit: It was pretty darn tasty!! 


With full bellies, we walked across the street and rented bikes for the morning. What fun. Happy anniversary to me...and Jake! I'm glad D suggested chicken and waffles. It was a great way to start the day.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
