Tandoori Chicken….allergen friendly

A while back I saw this in the grocery store, and as I was often curious about the flavor I bought it.

and we tried the recipe on the tin.   YUM!  a bit spicy but also a depth that cannot adequately be put into words.

The recipe on the box is good

I use  about half the powder the recipe calls for

To make it allergen friendly I use soy sour cream instead of dairy yogurt(If I was able to get plain non dairy yogurt I would use that)

and instead of melted butter I use olive oil

it also calls for lemon juice

The recipe from the box:

1 pound chicken(make slices across the top of the pieces)

2 tbsp tandoori powder

2 tbsp plain yogurt

 1 tsp lemon juice

1 tbsp oil

salt and pepper to taste

mix  the last 5 together and pour over chicken(I do this in a plastic freezer bag)

let marinate a few hours

grill or broil till done!

(not my image  below but that’s about how it looks when done!)

Tandoori Chicken - Grill method (optional dairy free)

YUM

Strawberry Rhubarb Torte(no real strawberries harmed in the making of this dessert!)

this recipe is a winner.

I’ve made it many times with  few changes to the original(I use olive oil in place of butter/shortening, and soy sour cream in place of eggs 1/4 cup per egg called for)

super easy, super fast…super yummy…as long as you use red jello flavor is not as important

I cut the rhubarb using a food processor(cutting blade on)I’ve also used a mandolin cutter in the past.

I half the topping as we think its too sweet to have the amount on it calls for.

I had to sample it….but then the kids got home:

This recipe can be made with fresh or frozen rhubarb if you’ve never had rhubarb give it a try.(don’t eat the leaves!)tart yet yummy

sooooo Good!

Recipes from the Dr’s office….

So I was waiting ….in the waiting room(and waiting…and waiting…..)

and found this recipe in a “parents” magazine and snapped a photo with the ipod camera

and will be making it today

Asian Noodle Slurp-up

now I bought boneless/skinless chicken thighs to use…the recipe calls for chicken drumsticks,..but as pull the chicken off the bones for the recipe I don’t think it really matters.

it’s essentially a chicken broth with

snow peas, napa cabbage and brown rice noodles , and of course the shredded chicken meat

the broth is created with ginger, and chicken broth

garnished with green onions,

the noodles, soy sauce and and salt/pepper are added to taste at the end.

Ingredients

  •  green onions
  •  pounds  chicken drumsticks, skin removed
  •  cups  low-sodium chicken broth
  •  2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  •  1/2 small head Napa cabbage
  •  ounces  brown rice pad Thai noodles
  •  ounces  fresh snow peas, bias sliced into thirds
  •  tablespoons  reduced-sodium soy sauce
  •  Salt and black pepper

and if you don’t add the soy sauce you have a

wheat free

egg free

nut free

tree-nut free

dairy free

shell fish free

my kids don’t really care for soup but given the amount of pasta in this dish

I think they may actually eat it!
