Favorite Find Friday – Gluten Free Beer


My favorite find for this Friday is Redbridge Beer.

I’m not a huge beer drinker, but I enjoy it occasionally, plus I like to make my sausages with beer.  When you first try GF beer it is not at all what you expect, which is beer.  Some of them were so disgusting, some of them tasted ok going down, but the aftertaste was not tolerable.  Depending on what kind of beer you like to drink obviously affects your opinion on this.  Before GF my favorite was Michelob Light and then the Michelob Lime Cactus.  So, in my limited opinion, I would say that this is closest to Bud Light.  It’s not the same as traditional beer, but it is nice to be able to enjoy the occasional beer.

There are many other GF beers to choose from, if you can find them where you live.  I found a variety at Whole Foods in Florida, where I live in GA there is no Whole Foods and I think Earth Fare only carries the Redbridge.  Which I can now purchase at my local Kroger.

Gluten Free Chicken Italiano


1 pound GF Pasta
4 chicken breast halves (or more if you desire)
Salt & Pepper

Morton’s Nature Seasoning
Costco Kirkland No-Salt Seasoning

3 teaspoons Italian Dressing Mix (recipe in cookbook)
3 Tablespoons olive oil ( used extra virgin)

½ onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced

25 oz pasta sauce (I used Prego)
1-14oz can crushed tomatoe
1 Tablespoon honey (optional, I used it but it was a tad sweet this time, you never know with tomatoes, so I would taste first)

Grated Parmesan for serving

Put on pot of water to cook pasta.  Get the chicken and sauce  going and throw the pasta in to cook once water is boiling and cook according to package directions. 

Season your chicken breasts with salt, pepper, Morton’s, Costco season and Italian dressing mix, both sides.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add oil and onions.   Cook until they begin to cook down, maybe 5 minutes.  Add garlic cook 1 minute.  Stir well.  Add the seasoned chicken.  Cook chicken, depending on thickness 10-20 minutes.  Mine were frozen, but they were small and it took about 20 minutes.  Once cooked, remove chicken and set aside.

To the skillet with onions and garlic add the tomatoes and pasta sauce.  Reduce heat to low and let cook about 10 minutes.  Taste your sauce and add more seasonings and honey, if necessary.

Top your pasta with sauce, chicken and cheese.  I cut my chicken up, but you could put the whole breast on top and that would look great.
