You see in the news, on T.V, Facebook and all over Pinterest about gluten free living. Sometimes the press plays it off like a new fad diet, but gluten free living is a life saver for many people. A gluten–free diet is a diet that excludes the protein gluten. Gluten is found in grains such as wheat, barley, rye and triticale (a cross between wheat and rye). A gluten–free diet is used to treat celiac disease. Celiac disease is a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy. I’ve had many readers reach out asking for more quick and easy gluten free recipes #CookitGF and with the help of Tyson we’ve came up with a great quick and easy gluten-free chicken taco!
When I see a healthy food frozen I get excited! That means less prep work for me, less time in the kitchen and more time doing other things I love. So finding out that Tyson has gluten-free grilled chicken breast fillets gets me excited. I found them at Sam’s Club, who is actually featuring the gluten-free chicken breast fillets in-store with a demo on March 6th and March 8th; you can find a list of participating stores here.
What I love about the frozen chicken is all it needs to do is be heated and served. This recipe literally takes minutes and can be used in so many ways. Tacos are always a family favorite, so we like to get creative. I was able to find both hard and soft gluten-free taco shells (yay!) and taco seasoning (yay!). As I was researching I was amazed at how many things we eat on a daily basis includes gluten that you wouldn’t even think about.
I think one of the great things about going gluten-free is the taste is still phenomenal! My little taste tester was more then happy to dig into some tacos after school, even though she was a bit leery because she thought it might be ‘diet’ food. Needless to say Tyson has done it once again!
