This isn’t exactly a nutrition packed meal but it is my occasional treat for dinner. Even though it’s Failsafe I tend to react to the citric acid if I’m feeling particularly sensitive.
I serve it with rice and beans which are also occasional foods for me due to the Fodmaps in beans and I think I’m developing an intolerance to rice due to the amount I consume. I tend to develop intolerances to a food if I have it too often and unfortunately rice is one of my staples. I’ve found it helpful to rinse the rice thoroughly before cooking and shorter grains are tolerated better.
For a bit of an added extra I chopped up some garlic and added to the pan while cooking the chicken. It was awesome! This is coming from someone who hasn’t had garlic for five years and I was very excited to get this back in! So for me I think I’ve passed the fructans and galactans groups of Fodmaps.
Ok, get on with it and give me the recipe!! I hate it when blogs just go on and on so you have to keep scrolling in order to get to the recipe 😋
- 4 Chicken breasts
- 1C Tapioca starch (approx – about a cup but I never remember to measure!) You can also use corn starch/flour.
- 1 Egg whisked with some water or for those who can’t tolerate egg – 2t Orgran No Egg (heaped) to 4T water (you may need to top this up depending on the size of your breasts 😉)
- 1C Rice crumbs (approx. – again I forget to measure)
- Cut the breasts into whatever size pieces you want. I try to slice mine relatively thinly to make the cooking time shorter and make sure it’s evenly cooked.
- Put each of the other ingredients in their own separate bowl.
- Coat the chicken first in the tapioca starch, then the egg and finally the crumbs.
- You can fry or bake them. I tend to fry them up to seal them then finish them off in the oven. My hubby is particularly sensitive to Salmonella so I always make sure it is well cooked.
- 1/2C Sugar (I haven’t played with alternative sweeteners but please let me know if you do!)
- 1T Tapioca Starch / Corn Flour
- 1 C Water
- 1t Citric Acid (level teaspoon)
- 1t Salt (level teaspoon)
- Put the sugar, starch and water in a saucepan and mix together.
- Put on a medium heat and continue stirring until it thickens. It will turn from white to clear.
- Remove from heat.
- Add salt and citric acid and stir well.
