Creamy Tomato Chicken

Gluten Free       Dairy Free           Soy Free              Preservative Free

This is a recipe that I developed and has become one of my family’s favourite dinners.  In fact my daughter who has not been tested for intolerances chose this as her birthday dinner earlier in the year.Creamy tom chick3

Don’t be put off by the different steps it is actually quite an easy dinner to make. This recipe would be easy to adapt depending on how many people you where feeding.

The Recipe

First of all cut 1 double chicken breast into nugget size pieces and coat it in yellow maize flour (a little coarser than white corn flour/starch).

Next heat a little oil in a fry pan and cook the chicken pieces.  The yellow maize flour gives it a bit of a crunchy coating.  Remove the chicken from the frypan.

While the chicken is cooking, cut up a couple of cups of vegetables.  I usually use things like onion, capsicum, mushroom, zucchini, carrot and corn (whatever I have in my fridge).  When all the chicken is cooked and removed from the pan, add a little more oil and fry the vegetables for a few minutes.

Add about ½ cup whole egg mayonnaise (gluten & dairy free), ½ cup almond milk (or dairy free milk of choice), along with 2 tablespoons tomato paste (I use the ‘no added salt’ sachets that have this amount in them).  Heat this for a few minutes with the vegetables.

Meanwhile prepare 200g thin rice noodles or rice sticks according to the packets directions.

To serve:  place rice noodles on the plate, top with the vegetable sauce and add the cooked chicken on top.  Lastly sprinkle with crunchy Fried Rice noodles (Gluten free).

  1. Hi! Here in France I can buy tubes of tomato paste. While visiting my kids in New England, I saw that the only option seemed to be tomato paste in cans. I didn’t see the sachets you mention here. Very inconvenient, I thought. So I decided to freeze the paste in smaller quantities, scooping out tablespoons into tiny freezer bags (snack bags?).

    1. I now buy my tomato paste in a squeeze bottle that keeps for up to 4 weeks in the fridge. We go through it quite quickly so I use it in time. Although it has preservative it is not sulfites.
