Gluten Free Sesame Chicken

Sesame Chicken Gluten Free Recipe //

I have had exposure to gluten free diets and recipes at NYC bakeries and restaurants, but admittedly I had never really brought the concept to my own kitchen until I was given the Book Gluten Free ‘Mediterranean’ Gourmet Cuisine  by Aslıhan Koruyan Sabancı. I began browsing the book and realized that the book wasn’t just for people with gluten sensitivity. It was actually a great book of recipes for anyone who loves Mediterranean or Aegean cuisines and wants a healthy diet. I especially loved that at the bottom of each recipe she included a Nutrient Value and Weight chart, making it extra perfect for your family health nut.

For dinner I chose to make ‘Sesame Chicken’ which I knew would be a crowd pleaser, especially for my husband.

Gluten Free Sesame Chicken Ingredients:

  • 3 chicken breasts {I chose hormone free organic chicken}
  • 1 banana pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 small orange
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons wheat free soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove {I opted out of this!}
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  1. Chop the chicken breasts into cubes. Cook with olive oil, sliced garlic, garlic powder, salt, sesame seeds, and soy sauce.
  2. Chop the colored peppers into large cubes, add to the chicken and stir for a few minutes. Distribute to serving plates.
  3. Top with peeled sliced oranges and serve. {I added a little bit of parsley too for color!}
