Chicken with Spinach Mushroom Cream Sauce (Whole30, paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free)

Does anyone else feel like we went straight from Summer to Winter? Here in Kansas, we just had our second snow of the season and I am not ready for the cold weather yet! We are only a couple of weeks away from Thanksgiving and I haven't even started to plan our menu yet. We're traveling over the holiday week this year for a fun getaway with my family. Other than traveling to out of town relatives' houses, we don't often travel far from home during the holidays. So when I do get around to planning my recipes for Turkey Day, they'll either be make ahead or easy to throw together at the last minute. Thankfully we'll have a full kitchen where we're staying which makes life and traveling with food allergies so much easier.

Chicken + Spinach Fettuccine Alfredo {dairy + gluten free}

Creamy, delicious Alfredo sauce epitomizes comfort food for me. Since Mason's dairy-allergy diagnosis, I have only made Alfredo a handful of times, typically making a separate, dairy-free meal for him. Over the years, I have grown increasingly uncomfortable with cooking with milk products due to cross-contamination issues that can easily happen in the kitchen. Whenever I have used milk, cheese or other dairy in cooking, my anxiety skyrockets.

Kale Pesto and Crispy Chicken Thighs {dairy + gluten free}


I've never been a big fan of pesto. Don't get me wrong...I want to like it. I just haven't found one that I actually enjoyed eating. I decided to try making my own dairy-free version using Go Veggie Foods Dairy-free Parmesan Style Topping since it tastes exactly like regular parmesan. (Make sure it is the purple tub that says "dairy-free" not the green one that is only lactose free and still contains milk proteins.) I also love kale and I think it was perfect for my new version of pesto, which I really enjoyed by the way!

Fiesta Grilled Chicken {top 8 + gluten free}

As a working mom, I hold myself responsible for making sure the daily lives of my kids (and our family as a whole) run smoothly - from getting to school and work on time to making it to every soccer practice, baseball game and after school activity. When I am able to get a fresh, healthy meal on the table, I feel as though I have accomplished a near-impossible feat. (Maybe I am being a little dramatic, but when you add food allergies and restricted diets to the mix, it is an even bigger task!) I need an arsenal of quick, dairy- and gluten-free recipes that the whole family can enjoy, because I refuse to make different meals for everyone, especially on a week night!

Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken {Dairy & Gluten Free}

About 10 years ago, I was scared to death to try and grill something on my own, especially chicken! The couple of attempts I'd made were not at all good and the chicken always ended up dry and flavor-less. I stumbled upon a recipe that looked so easy, it had to be too good to be true. But it wasn't! Between that recipe and a few gazillion Food Network cooking shows, I finally gave it a shot. It was, hands down, the best grilled chicken I had ever had (not just from my own cooking experiences).

I couldn't tell you now where I found the recipe, but I still use it 99% of the time. I love it because the marinade uses ingredients I always have on hand, and is very versatile.  It's also super easy to mix the marinade in advance, pop the chicken into it for about an hour, then toss them on the grill. I've even whipped up the marinade and taken it on camping trips in our cooler. Just keep the chicken in a gallon-zipper bag in the cooler, pour the pre-made marinade in, let it meld together in the cooler for awhile and then pop it on the grill. Such an easy and delicious main dish!

Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken 

Makes 4-6 servings                                                    Printable Recipe

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken pieces (I've used both breasts and thighs with great results)
1 cup vegetable or olive oil
1-2 Tbsp minced garlic
1/4 fresh herbs, finely chopped (I like to use thyme, oregano, parsley & sometimes chives)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Juice of 1 whole lemon

In a lidded container, whisk together all ingredients except for the chicken. Once combined, add the raw chicken and seal. Place the container in the refrigerator for 1-4 hours to marinade. (The outside of the chicken will turn slightly white. This is just because of the acidity of the lemon juice. It is actually a good thing as the acid helps to tenderize the meat!)

When you're ready to cook, preheat the grill to medium heat. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place it on the hot grill. Discard the remaining marinade. Grill for about 5-7 minutes on each side and until the chicken is cooked through. (Try not to overcook the chicken or it may become dry.)

Remove the chicken from the grill and cover with foil. Allow it to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Serve the hot chicken alongside some steamed or roasted vegetables, a baked sweet potato, or with gluten-free pasta or rice. Any of your favorite side dishes will go perfectly with this delectable dish!

Tip: I buy fresh herbs, finely chop them and lay them on paper towels to absorb any liquid. Then I place them (with the paper towel) in snack-size zipper bags and freeze them. These work great for cooking and you don't have to worry about using all of your herbs before they go bad.

I do the same thing with veggies like spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, bell peppers and onions. This also makes it really handy for cooking quick dinners since these items are already prepped and only need a short time to thaw!

Chicken Caesar Sandwiches {Dairy, Egg & Gluten Free}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #eggfree #chicken #sandwiches



I wanted to make something quick and easy on this rainy, cool Saturday. I found a recipe on Pinterest for Slow Cooker Caesar Chicken Sandwiches from Chef In Training. They looked delicious, but like most Caesar-anything, they called for Parmesan cheese. Caesar salad dressing traditionally contains Parmesan as well. So began my search for Caesar dressing recipes that don't contain milk/cheese, etc.
