Daily forays into the kitchen for 1 celiac, 1 vegetarian, and 2 carnivores

Chicken With Marsala, Mushrooms and Shallots

Dinner Party, Gluten Free, Poultry7 Responses »

You might think with a vegetarian to keep in mind every day while dreaming up dinner, it could get complicated, never mind the whole Celiac thing as well.

But surprisingly it really isn’t.

Yesterday the Carnivores (hub and son) suggested many times that Chicken with Marsala and Mushrooms would work for dinner.

It had been awhile.

Luckily Bunny (veggie daughter) will eat whatever rice or quinoa I have planned, along with the vegetables. Without complaint.

Thank goodness!!

Hands down this one of our favorites.

Doesn’t hurt that I can whip it up in the time it took to roast those beautiful carrots with butter and thyme.

The asparagus we broiled on a sheet pan, sprinkled with a whole bunch of shredded Parmesan on top.

I’d like to say the cheese was for Bunny since she wasn’t having any chicken.

But truthfully, we all love cheesy vegetables.

looks delicious and nice and easy too. I like that the chicken looks browned and crisp without any dredging in flour too!

Awesome…looks yummy. I have lost 15 lbs since the first of the year by simply by eliminating breads, sweets and adding extreme exercise…OK…I’m a meat and potato guy and enjoy my oatmeal in the morning….but need to head for the Gluten Fee zone…where do I start?

15 Lbs that’s great, congratulations. Eating real food is the way to go, not processed.
Meat, Poultry, Fish, Eggs, Vegatables, Potatoes, Rice, Fruit, Nuts and Seeds all grow in their original form.
Most gluten free foods are just that. It’s the packaged stuff that is not real.
Lucky for you Meat and Potatoes are real food, just add a veg or salad and you are good!
