Chicken breast with gluten and lactose free brown sauce

Chicken breast with gluten and lactose free brown sauce

chicken breast with gluten and lactose free brown sauce6

I couldn’t think of a better name than that. 😀 🙈I’ve been making it every couple of weeks for months at the request of my little family. I have no idea where the inspiration came from, it just did. Since several people asked for the recipe, I finally measured everything out today. Since I didn’t have much time to cook, I made our lunch today in the pressure cooker. 😊 For those who don’t have such a machine, you can cook it on the stove in a wok in the same way, but of course it takes longer to cook. The soy sauce must be gluten free!!!

Ingredients for 3 people

3 whole chicken breasts
1 tablespoon of lactose-free liquid butter
3 tbsp slightly hot gluten-free sambal
3 heaped tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce!!! you have to be very careful to make it gluten free!!!
3 tablespoons of gluten free ketchup
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
pepper to taste
salt to taste

Preparation

I have an Aigostar pressure cooker, but I’ve seen it under other names. It’s a great little appliance and often when I’m short of time, I just put it into work, like now. It makes very tasty meals in a short time. I have now set it to cook for the first time, as if I was using a hob. I put butter in the bottom of the pan and cooked both sides of the chicken breasts until red.

When the meat was nice and red, I put the sugar in the machine first and then the other ingredients. I pulled one of the meats aside to mix it all thoroughly and get a thick sauce. I also cooked both sides in the sauce for 1-1 minute.

I closed it, set it on the meat program, 15 minutes, as you can see. Since I had already cooked the chicken breasts in the machine, it reached the cooking temperature quickly, and was done in about 20 minutes total (pre-heating included).

Meanwhile, the potatoes were cooking in the airfryer. That way I could serve the delicious, flavorful, crumbly meat to my family 30 minutes later, doing other things while it was cooking. 😊 I served the meal with a hot, rich sauce. 😋 Sometimes I take the meat apart and put it with some sauce in a giant hot gluten-free bun. Try it, it’s delicious that way too. 😋

I was able to buy a nice thinly sliced turkey breast. I’ve never thought of stuffing it like that before, but it turned out to be delicious, and I’ll make it again. 😊😋 With Christmas coming up, I would recommend it to anyone. It takes only a few minutes to prepare the stuffing and fill the meat. And after roasting, you just need to steam them and you don’t need to stand by the hob. But you can also prepare the meat the day before and just roast it on Christmas Day. 😊🎄🎇✨

Ingredients for 4 people:

4 thin slices of turkey breast
8 slices of lactose-free cheese
16 thin slices of gluten and lactose free bacon
8 slices of gluten and lactose free turkey breast ham
100 ml lactose-free milk
For filling:
1 gluten-free bun
1 bunch of green parsley
1 egg
50 g gluten- and lactose-free liver pate
ground pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste

Preparation

I cut the buns into small pieces, arranged them in the bottom of a small bowl, then poured the milk over them. I pressed them thoroughly into the milk and leaved them for a few minutes to soften all over. I didn’t need to pour the milk off because it was all absorbed by the bun, but if there’s any left in the bottom of the bowl you have to pour it out. Then I mixed it thoroughly with the ingredients.

I salted the turkey breast slices and layered them with ham, cheese, stuffing, then cheese and ham again. I carefully folded in the ends of the meat and then the sides on top.

I sealed the ends with the bacon first and then covered the stuffed meat tightly from the other side.

I browned both sides in hot oil, then lowered the heat to simmer under the lid for 15-20 minutes until tender.

I served it with parsley rice, but any side dish will do. When you cut the meat apart you can see the layers very nicely, the filling in the middle stays intact, the hot melting cheese permeates all the layers. 😋

I always think a lot about what I can do to vary the dishes, most of the time I ask myself what I can serve as a side dish. Because of the gluten and our many allergies, we are very limited. But I try to make the most out of it.
Today I made grilled chicken in a pressure cooker. The program took 25 minutes. I figured I could make the side dish meantime. I got a big bag of minced cauliflower from fridge. 😊 Earlier I tried it, and it turned out that the roasted cauliflower tasted great with the roasted chicken. I only added salt this time, because grilled chicken has a very intense flavour, but I’m sure that pepper and garlic, for example, won’t make it worse. 😁 It can also be dipped in sour yoghurt. 😊 😋

Ingredients

400 grams minced cauliflower
4 eggs
4 tablespoons rice flour

Preparation

I added all the ingredients to the minced cauliflower and mixed thoroughly.

Glutenfree, simple, quick cauliflower rösti1Glutenfree, simple, quick cauliflower rösti2Glutenfree, simple, quick cauliflower rösti3

I put a little oil in the frying pan, but I didn’t heat it up too much, just enough to cook the rösti. I put it in the oil with a tablespoon, spread it out evenly into the size of the palm of my hand and fried it for 3-5 minutes on both sides. Don’t fry too quickly as it burns easily and the center remains raw.

Gluten and lactose free white chocolate cherry pie8

In every family, including ours, there’s a great favourite that we make quite often and everyone loves it, and it’s always a big hit. The cherry pie. First it was my husband’s favourite and then it became also the children’s. The pastry is basic, you can make it with any fruit. I think we’ve tried all sorts over the years. Although I didn’t go to any cook school, only cooked at home for my family’s enjoyment, I learned to know the flavours without tasting. So I’ve reformed a few of my recipes, and today it was my old recipe’s turn. Glad I did, because you know, here comes the real praise again, the hmmm… 💗 and the “don’t put that plate too far away please”. 😀🥰

Ingredients

3 eggs
300 grams of sugar
100 grams of lactose-free margarine
200 gram lactose-free butter cream
350 g gluten-free cake flour
8 grams vanilla sugar
12 grams baking powder
For serving:
conserve cherries
gluten and lactose free white chocolate chips

Preparation

I beat the eggs into stiff mousse.

I put it in the pie pan, topped it with cherries and white chocolate chips. I baked in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 50 minutes.

The truth is, I couldn’t get enough of the sight and smell of it. I just hoped the taste would be wonderful.

After tasting the crumbs, I felt reassured, it was delicious this way. I managed to take a simple cake to a higher level. I highly recommend it to everyone, it can be made with plain flour in the same proportions. It went perfectly with my afternoon coffee.

Gluten and lactosefree roasted, stuffed bell pepper

The plants in our green house were drying out, so we took them out. As last, farewell autumn presents from our plants, we found cucumbers, several types of peppers and 4 giant bell peppers (which we call American peppers over here). I knew then that they would become stuffed peppers. I didn’t have much time in the kitchen today, but the preparation was done in half an hour, then they just needed roasting. You can prepare this meal in advance, and when you want to eat it you just have to roast it in the oven. Of course, you may need longer roasting time if you take out from the fridge. The ingredients are marked gluten free, which is why I included them in the recipe.

Ingredients for 4 people

150 grams onion
4 large bell peppers
2 large garlic cloves
600 grams minced chicken breast
2 tablespoons of paprika cream
1 teaspoon of ground pepper
1 teaspoon of salt
tomatoes to taste
lactose-free or vegetable cheese to taste
To serve:
boiled potatoes
lactose-free sour yoghurt or lactose-free sour cream to taste

Preparation

I fried the onions in a little oil. I washed the peppers and peeled the garlic.

I sautéed the thinly sliced garlic with the onion for a few minutes, then added the minced meat. I cooked it until the meat was white and then added the spices. I cooked it for a few minutes more. Meanwhile, I cut off the ends of the peppers and scooped out the insides.

I was looking for a baking dish in which the peppers wouldn’t fall over. I drizzled olive oil all over the tray, as well as the outside of the peppers, to make them roast better. I stuffed them with the meat filling. At the end, I poured the juices from the roasted meat into the peppers. I sliced some tomatoes, I had some cocktail tomatoes at home this time, put them on top of the meat and sprinkled the top with cheese. I preheated the oven to 180 degrees and cooked the dish for 30 minutes.

While it was roasting, I peeled potatoes, cut them into large slices and boiled them. We tasted it when serving and found that it went well with sour cream. When we cut the peppers in half, the juices from the roast flowed out, and it was delicious with the potatoes.

Gluten and lactose free Raffaello cake

Gluten and lactose free Raffaello cake

Raffaello17

I continued my search and research in my old recipe book. When we moved to Belgium, which was almost 17 years ago, a dear, elderly friend of mine copied a lot of her own recipes and gave them to me in a booklet as a souvenir. They were all tried and tested, her special recipes, so I have no idea where they came from originally. Sadly she is gone for two years now, so I can’t ask her.😥 It was nice to remember her, to recall her again, to read the familiar writing. I hope ahw would be pleased that these recipes are in the right place. ❤ Now here’s one that was one of her favourites. 🥰🍰

Ingredients

For the cream:
6 egg yolks
2 packets of gluten-free vanilla pudding powder (the one to be cooked)
100 grams of sugar
500 ml lactose-free or vegetable milk
200 grams lactose-free butter
For the dough:
6 egg whites
250 g sugar
100 grams gluten-free cake flour
150 g gluten-free coconut flakes
For the top of the cake:
50 grams gluten-free coconut flakes

Preparation

I made the cream first, so that it would have time to cool before I put it on the baked dough.

Raffaello15When you remove the rim from the pan, you can see where the dough and the cream meet. It slices very nicely when brought in from the fridge, but you should always put the leftovers back in the fridge. The taste of the coconut dough and the cream go together beautifully. You can collect the… hmmm… compliments. 😋😊Raffaello16

Gluten and laktosfree pastry cream

Pastry cream10

A thousand and one years ago, before I had celiac disease, I used to bake cream cakes. I hadn’t realized, but when emptying the freezer I found two packets of buttered pastry. I don’t know how I got the idea of making custard, it was just natural. When the kids will see it, this will be a favorite for the next few months again, just like it used to be.

Ingredients

2 packets Schar puff pastry
5 egg whites
100 g sugar
500 ml lactosefree milk
75 g gluten and lactose free vanilla pudding powder
1 packet vanilla sugar

Preparation

I cut one of the dough into equal squares, this was going to be the top of the cake. I put the dough in the oven at 180 degrees. 25 minutes to bake, while the cream is cooking. I put the whites of the eggs into the machine with two spoonful of sugar to beat until it became hard and stiff peaks formed. I whisked the custard powder with the sugar and milk until thick. I set the whisk to the lowest setting and added the hot custard a tablespoon at a time. I got a nice smooth cream. You don’t have to mix it much, just enough to blend it together.

You have to hide it well so the family doesn’t find it until it cools down! 🙈 I failed. My husband found it. It wasn’t perfectly set, but it already held its shape nicely and didn’t run at all. So I gave my permission for my husband to do “quality control”. I used a sharp knife to cut it according to the top layer, so the top and bottom pastry were the same. I sprinkled the top with icing sugar and finally served it. ❤😋

I like ready-made flour mixes. They’re safe to use if you run out of bread or rolls. This time I used the flour mix shown in the picture. I heartily recommend to try it. 😋

I’m not going to write a recipe because I followed the recipe on the bag exactly.

It’s delicious, it doesn’t crumble even the next day. It’s just like the gluten buns used to be. I just wanted to show you. 😊

Usually I serve pancakes after a soup. When I make a soup that is more nourishing, then only a couple of pancakes are enough. You can also vary the pancakes with different fillings, but you can also do whad I did, I changed the batter. I have been making these pancakes for many years, to the delight of the family. If you make it, scroll down a few posts to quickly find the pancake recipe. For your convenience here is the link: Gluten-and-lactose-free-pancakes. You can find the rest in the post. 😋

Ingredients

the pancake dough, already prepared
1 apple
2 tablespoons gluten-free flour
Stuffing:
3 tablespoons of granulated sugar
3 teaspoons of cinnamon

Preparation

The apples were washed, cored but not peeled. I grated them on a grater with small holes.

Cinnamon apple pancakes1

I added the apple together with its juice to the pancake batter, and then I added gluten-free flour too because the apple juice would make the batter too thin and it wouldn’t bake.

Cinnamon apple pancakes2

I baked the pancakes as usual.

Meanwhile I mixed the sugar and cinnamon.

I put a generous amount of the cinnamon sugar in the middle of the still hot pancake. I folded up both sides of the pancakes and rolled them up like this. It is because otherwise the sugar melts and runs out of the pancake.

Gluten and lactose free orange and poppy seed cake

Gluten and lactose free orange and poppy seed cake

Gluten and lactose free orange and poppy seed cake12

Poppy seed cake. I know this must be strange in many countries of the world. Here in Belgium a few years ago I could buy poppy seed only in the bird food section. Today you can find it on the cake ingredients shelf, but I’ve only seen it used as a decoration.
For us, in Hungary, it’s like other plants. My grandmother used to plant a few rows in the garden every year, then cut off the hardened tubers, pick out the tiny black seeds, dry them thoroughly to save some for Christmas. It was almost the only time we ate poppy seed pasta during Fasting, and poppy seed bejgli, a typical Hungarian Christmas dessert.
I remember, much later, many years later, when Hungary joined the European Union, there were some issues around for what purpose the poppy could be used. Eventually they allowed it to be used for food.
I have brought you a poppy seed cake filled with orange marmalade. I can heartily recommend it, because it is a very tasty, delicious cake. If you have tried it, tell me if you liked it.

Ingredients:

100 grams of poppy seeds
100 ml brown sugar
100 ml gluten-free flour
100 ml lactose-free milk
1 egg
50 ml olive oil
1 packet vanilla sugar
6 grams baking powder

orange marmalade to taste

50 g icing sugar
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons orange zest

Preparation:

I ground the poppy seeds with the brown sugar. The sugar is added to prevent the poppy seeds from sticking to the sides of the grinder.

Gluten and lactose free orange and poppy seed cake1

I put baking paper in a pan.

Meanwhile, I mixed the icing sugar and orange juice until smooth.

I cut the dough into three equal parts.

I spread two of the pastries thickly with the orange marmalade and stacked them on top of each other, then placed the third on top. I spread the orange sugar cream on the top layer.

I sprinkled the orange zest evenly over the top.

It’s worth waiting a couple of hours before slicing, until the cream on the top has dried a little. I had one slice left over, and it turned out much better the next day because the flavours came really together.
