Recipe Challenge Day 16- Gluten Free Chicken tenders

This is an easy quick recipe that the kids will love! I used a past recipe and just switched the flours to see if it would taste the same, which it did and it came out great. I used Bob’s Red Mill All purpose flour to make the homemade Bisquick  Funny thing while making more gluten free products turns out baking powder may have gluten in it! I found a gluten free powder and had to look up if in fact the powder I had did indeed have gluten. I got mixed facts, some said yes, some said no while others were just “may have it “. I’m thinking it does as that’s what most all said. Never even thought about whether it did or not, lesson learned!

For homemade Gluten Free Mix  (just like Bisquick)

This was handed down from my Mom 🙂

9 cups  Gluten free all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 cup shortening
1 tsp. cream of tartar <- yes this is gluten free!
1/3 cup baking powder ( gluten free powder!)
1 Tbsp. salt.

 Stir or sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar and salt in a large mixing bowl. With a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Store in an airtight covered container for up to 6 weeks at room temperature. It can also be stored in the freezer for up to 6 months. Allow mixture to come to room temperature before using. Make about 12-1/2 cups. Use just like biscuit mix.

To make the Chicken Tenders –

2-3lbs of skinless boneless chicken breasts cut into strips
2 tablespoons Italian seasons
2 tablespoons garlic powder
pepper to taste (2 teaspoons)
2 cups of the GF mix above
Mix this all up in a shallow dish or a ziplock bag.

2 beaten eggs

Foil a baking sheet and spray with oil. Set oven to 450F

Take your chicken strips and dip into eggs mixture, place into flour and cover to coat. Place on prepared pan. Continued with the remaining pan, you may need another baking sheet. Set in oven and cook for about 12-15 minutes turning the chicken over halfway between. When juices run clear chicken is done. Serve with favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!
