bone in chicken breasts

Gluten Free Chicken Breast Recipe

Several of my good friends have an allergy to wheat so they have to look for ways to

cook gluten free.  I have a recipe to share with them.  This recipe will be a favorite even if you don’t have to worry about gluten in your diet.

3 whole chicken breasts (bone in with skin) cut in 2 (you will have 6 pieces of chicken)

5 whole sweet peppers cleaned and cut into strips (Green, yellow, or red)

5 sweel onions peeled and cut in slices

2 Tablespoons of olive oil

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.  Put the olive oil on a cookie sheet, and place it in the oven. Let it heat for about 3 minutes.  Put the chicken breasts, skin side down.  Cover the chicken breasts with the sliced onions and peppers.  Cook for 35 minutes.  Turn the chicken breasts and cook for an additional 20 minutes.

You can use boneless/skinless chicken breasts in this recipe.  Decrease the cooking time to 20 minutes on each side.

Please let me know your experiences with this recipe.  Also, if you have a gluten free recipe, please share it with me.  I would like to do a blog of gluten free recipes.

Until next time, From our Butcher Block to your Table.

Sherman Provision Oven Fried Chicken

I have a couple of priceless stories to tell you about this recipe.  Pam, who is a regular customer at my store, told me she couldn’t cook.  I told her that was nonsense, that cooking was simply “following directions”.  I gave her my Oven Fried Chicken recipe.  I Mauri-1told her to put potatoes in the oven and to make a salad, and dinner was ready.  That was on Wednesday.  On Saturday Pam was back in my store.  She was ecstatic.  She had made the dinner for her husband as a surprise.  He loved the chicken.  He told his wife to quit her job and start a catering business with this recipe.  I had another customer who shall remain nameless.  I had given her the Oven Fried Chicken recipe.  She was in the store and I heard her tell The Butcher she needed to talk to me.  I went out to see her, not knowing what to expect.  She told me, “Honey, I made that Chicken recipe for my boyfriend.  We have been dating for 5 years, and after he ate that chicken, he almost proposed to me.”  I told her if he didn’t propose after he ate the Oven Fried Chicken that she should look for someone else.
