Allergy Free Comforting Chicken & Rice

This dish came together as one of those, “use what’s in the fridge” types of meals. I only used a small amount of asparagus since around here, it’s considered a bad word. I’m working on that by the way, lol. Here’s the best part though: after I had everything ready, I asked everyone to sample, and they were just so pleased. The Papa said that it’s not a dish that knocks you off your feet with flavor, but at the same time, it’s just so comforting to eat. In fact, he told me several times that evening that “Dinner was just so comforting. We should have that again soon.” Coming from him, and knowing that asparagus was involved, it was quite the compliment. So, from our kitchen to yours, here’s a comforting dish for the family to enjoy.

Allergy Free Jazzed up Hotdogs by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Free Jazzed up Chicken Hotdogs (Beef Version Too)

Did you know that Kid Two is allergic to beef? It’s why most of our recipes that have meat are turkey and chicken based. However, when we purchased our stove, pots, and pans, it made starting fresh and dividing the kitchen awesome. Everyone else likes beef, for the most part. Now, we’re able to safely make them a beef version of something (even though I don’t do this very often yet). It also means we can save a little money by not having them eat the allergy-friendly meats, especially hotdogs, which can sometimes be more expensive. This was one of those times.

I like showing the kids the different things they can do with hotdogs, since it’s “easy” for them (no meat to trim and prep, etc.). Kids in general like hotdogs, but personally, I feel like the meal is too easy… like somehow I’ve cheated everyone because I boiled hotdogs and served them. Yet, if the kids boil the exact same hotdogs, I sing their praises for taking initiative. LOL. I really crack myself up. This time I opted to make something that I felt would be fancy and healthy. I had several items from Costco that I wanted to put to good use, and I’m glad I did.

Allergy Status: Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Paleo Compatible, Refined/Cane Sugar Free Compatible, Diabetic Compatible, GAPs Compatible, SCD Compatible, Low Histamine Compatible
For Sugar Free, Paleo, Diabetic, AIP, GAPs, SCD, and Low Histamine: Follow the beef recipe, or use fresh chicken rather than the hotdogs. Read More

Allergy Free, Organic Chicken Sausage & Rice by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Free, Organic Maple Chicken Sausage & Rice

During basketball season, I thought this would be fun to serve to the team, so we volunteered to bring the after game snack, and this was the result. We also sent cupcakes 🙂 When The Papa came home, he told me that another parent asked, “Who catered?” What a lovely compliment! Everyone enjoyed the dish, and really loved the cupcakes. That’s a win-win in my book, even though we didn’t win the game.

What I really love about this meal is the chicken sausage. Our Costco carries an Organic Maple Chicken Sausage! What’s not to love? It’s one of the few sausage products I can purchase that everyone can enjoy together. I normally purchase 3 or more at a time. There are 3 smaller packs to the pack, and the kids get to use them whenever they’d like for breakfasts and lunches.

Kaffir Lime Curried Fried Rice

Allergy Free, Organic Kaffir Lime Curried Fried Rice

This was a fun experiment that I thought I would share. I was scrolling through Good Eggs a while back, and came across Kaffir Limes, sometimes called Makrut Limes. Whenever there’s something new listed, I like to read the descriptions, and this one really caught my attention. It said that it would be the perfect addition to a good curry. I went about making our Sweet Curry Chicken Fried Rice, but also added the juice from the limes, as well as lime zest! The kids said it was too lime-y, and the wished I had left it out. What do they know? They’re just children with childish palates. But seriously, I may have overdone it with the limes a tad bit. When there’s a recipe in place, I’m sure we’ll write all about it. Until then, here are some fun pictures to look at. Hopefully this will give you ideas on how to bring new flavors into your kitchen 🙂

Allergy Friendly Marinaded Chicken by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Friendly, Organic Marinaded Chicken & Rice

Do you ever marinade your meats? I usually don’t, but have been wanting to try it more and more. I tried it with fish many years ago, but learned the hard way about using lemon, and doing it for too long. You can alter the texture of the meat… Ahhh, blissful youth. This time around, I decided to go with something I’ve heard about here and there, so I figured I wouldn’t mess anything up. It was indeed a great starting point. Interestingly, what I loved the most was the glossy, reflective image in the end. It looked like something out of a magazine, in the most delicious way possible.

Gluten & Dairy Free Chicken and Potato Pizza

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Chicken & Potato Pizza

It’s Friday! I don’t know about you, but I always have this “happy let’s party” vibe on Friday mornings. I usually end up making pizza to celebrate. The kids have come to love Friday lunches, and for good reason. Have you seen the other mashed potato creations this week? There were Mashed Potatoes Done Two Ways, and Potato Soup. Well, with the soup leftovers, we made pizza. Kid Two asked me while we worked on the soup if it would be a good idea to ass mashed potatoes to a pizza. Then he said, never-mind, too many carbs. I thought about, and said that because our soup was a little on the pasty side, rather than runny, we could try to use it as a sauce. When ever the kids come up with an idea like this, I try to encourage them by finding a way to make it work. I think it’s something all Food Allergy Parents should try to do, assuming they don’t already. Allergy Kids are just that – kids. They have to live a long lengthy lifetime, so it’s good to train them young to think outside the box. If we can give them a joy for cooking, baking, and all things kitchen related, it will allow them a greater sense of independence when they’re older, and will also help make sure they don’t go hungry. Or get caught in the dreaded trap of being bored from eating the same few meals again and again.

A little note: a lot of our recipes are cane/refined sugar free. The Wholly Wholesome Pizza Dough has a small amount of cane sugar. If you’re GF, DF, EF and need a pizza dough without cane sugar, you can get the Sunny Day Foods Rice/Potato dough, or opt to make your own. Read More

Allergy Free, Organic Chicken Apple Rice by The Allergy Chef

Allergy Free, Organic Chicken & Apple Rice

A while back, we had a fun exchange of samples with San Francisco Salt Co. They got to try the Free and Friendly Foods top 8 free, vegan cupcakes. We received a beautiful box full of all sorts of salts to try. The hand written note was what really got me. This will be the first of many recipes that features one of their unique salt flavors. Up first, Cherry Smoked Salt. When the kids and I smelled the salt, we were in love. But wait! There’s more! The best part of this meal was right after the sampling. As you know, I can’t eat the food, so the kids sample it once I think it’s ready, and they let me know if changes are needed. Kid Three was the first to sample. He took a bite, and his eyes went wide as he chewed. He shouted “Oh, there are so many flavors! I love it!!” Yes dear friends, that made my day. So here’s the recipe. Hope you enjoy it as much as the kids did.

Allergy Status: Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Onion & Garlic Free, Refined/Cane Sugar Free, Diabetic, Low Histamine, Paleo Compatible
For Paleo: Use the appropriate thickener of choice in the sauce, such as arrowroot or cassava. Read More

Free and Friendly Foods Allergy Friendly Pizza

Pineapple Chicken Pizza

Did you know we’re working on a pizza book? With that in mind, the poor kids have to eat homemade pizza creations on a regular basis. I know right? This is one that I thought may not be as great as I had dreamed up, but then they told me it was really good. I’ll probably make some more tweaks to it before I deem it book ready. You should give this a go if you’d like to have something different.

Free and Friendly Foods Spinach, Chicken, & Mushroom

Organic Spinach, Chicken, & Mushroom

We made a very special dish for someone recently, and The Papa says it turned out well. I will say, I don’t think this one is very kid friendly. It’s definitely for the grownup, or kids and teens with adult tastes. Additionally, I feel that this is a great springboard for making something awesome. Have some extra Thanksgiving stuffing? You could totally add that in for something extra tasty. Apples would also add a lovely touch.

Allergy Status: Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Paleo, GAPs, AIP Compatible, Corn Free Compatible
For AIP: Omit the black pepper, and use a safe season blend.
