Gluten-Free Chicken Recipes


While chicken does not contain any gluten by itself, many recipes rely on gluten-containing additives to help give poultry texture and flavor. This makes these products off-limits for those who are sensitive to gluten. However, if you need to avoid gluten due to an intolerance or sensitivity, you don't have to give up your favorite chicken dishes. There are many ways to add flavor and texture to chicken without using gluten.
