Gluten free chicken recipes with style and substance October 13, 2009

It is better to pay the grocer than the doctor.

According to Dr. Eydi Bauer, author of the must-read new book, Life After Bread, in the US, we spend “twice as much on healthcare as any other country spends, yet we’re generally in poorer health.”

Dr. Bauer states that, “we are becoming sicker because of what we eat, and common foods are often the source of our health imbalances. Every street corner offers both the posion (gluten) and a pharmaceutical remedy for the resulting pain and discomfort … We need a paradigm shift.”

Here are some easy and elegant chicken recipes from The Unassuming Foodie:

  • Divine Basil-Walnut Chicken Usually, the purchase of fresh basil results in homemade pesto. I have to admit, however, that pine nuts do very little to inspire me. Walnuts, on the other hand, can reduce the damaging effects of fats on blood vessels according to a 2006 study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, can lower LDL cholesterol by 10%, and taste downright gorgeous, especially when roasted.
  • Arugula, Feta, and Olive Stuffed Chicken Thighs Given the choice between Greek or Caesar salad, do you always spring for the Greek? When you breeze past a display of gourmet olives at your neighborhood deli or upscale grocer, are you instantly intrigued? This is for you!
  • Stuffed Chicken with Fresh Sage in Prosciutto Envelopes This recipe is so impressive-looking and utterly satisfying, I’ve served it at a formal Christmas Eve dinner, and conversely I’ve chopped into tiny pieces to my 13-month-old, who shows increasingly good taste.
  • Crusty Herbed Chicken  This is similar to a breaded and spiced, fried chicken dish—without the fat and flour!
  • Roast Chicken with Smoked Paprika and Fresh Thyme Spanish Smoked Sweet Paprika is also known as Pimenton de la Vera, Dulce. It is a popular ingredient in many Mediterranean recipes, and its flavor is essential for authentic Spanish cooking.
