Chicken & Rice Two Ways (Gluten Free, Top 8 Free, RSF)

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Chicken and Rice Two Ways

In an effort to continue to share easy ways to jazz up the basics, today we’re talking about chicken and rice. Both chicken and rice are easy to prepare, and easy to serve with variety in mind. Both of these chicken and rice recipes are gluten free, top 8 allergy free, and refined sugar free.

What also makes these gluten free recipes so awesome in our opinion is the simplicity. We wanted to show you that you don’t need 27 ingredients to create food that tastes good. Now, will these win me that Michelin Star I’m after? Probably not. Will these recipes have your family fed in about 30 minutes with leftovers? Absolutely 🙂

I’ll also add that this cooking method is toddler friendly and picky eating friendly, as you can serve the components separately.

Before you break out the seasonings, you’re going to need cooked rice and shredded chicken. For us, the rice was cooked the day before and we used leftovers. I love keeping leftover rice in the fridge for this exact reason. I used about 20 ounces of cooked rice in each recipe with a little dairy free butter in each pan.

To show you the chicken two ways, we pressure cooked 4.5 pounds of organic chicken thigh with salt only (to taste), and split the shredded chicken in half. You can watch this Easy Cooking Video on pressure cooking chicken.

BBQ Memory Chicken & Rice Seasonings

2 – 3 TBSP Organic Maple Sugar
2 – 3 TBSP Organic Onion Granules (to taste)
1 TBSP Organic Dried Parsley
3 tsp Organic Smoked Paprika
2 tsp Organic Onion Granules

Can I Use Whole Ingredients Instead?

Absolutely! The goal of this video and these recipes is to create the simplest version of a recipe to help people get meals on the table quickly. We also know that some of you won’t have the whole ingredients in stock at the moment.

Easy substitutions for this recipe: Use whole diced onion (brown or caramelized), chop fresh garlic to mix in, and use pan seared bell pepper. These replace your onion, garlic, and smoked paprika.

Savory Chicken & Rice Ingredients

1 TBSP Organic Dried Parsley
1.5 tsp Organic Dried Thyme
1/2 tsp Organic Dried Oregano
1/8 – 1/4 tsp Organic White Pepper (to taste)

You Can Take This A Step Further

To make this more of a creamy dish, add in milk and an arrowroot slurry to your desired consistency. Should you choose to add milk, you’ll need to increase your seasonings to prevent the dish from tasting bland.
