Creamed Chicken Recipe--Gluten Free

A delicious creamed chicken recipe is a good cook’s best friend.  When you don’t have enough meat leftover from a previous meal to serve your family, this is the recipe to turn to!

A great creamed chicken recipe is a terrific meat extender.  Frugal cooks know meat is the most expensive food budget item.  Stretching that meat over the course of several meals makes those precious food dollars go much farther.

Make up the basic recipe.  Add some odds and ends hanging around your refrigerator.  You know, those leftovers you didn’t know what to do with, and then play around with some seasonings, perhaps trying something new like adding caraway or tarragon.  Then, give your new food creation a fancy name.

Voila!  You have a wonderful new menu item to serve your family.

The versatility of this creamed chicken recipe is limited only by your creativity.

Substitute your favorite poultry or game bird for the chicken, such as turkey, pheasant, or other meat.

Serve this creamed chicken recipe over gluten-free biscuits, English muffins, toast, noodles, rice, popovers, gluten-free puffed pastry or Yorkshire pudding.

Make a casserole.  Stir in cooked rice, diced cooked potatoes or cooked noodles into the creamed chicken recipe and pour it into a casserole dish.  Top it with gluten-free bread crumbs and heat it through in a moderate hot oven for 30 minutes.

Turn the creamed chicken recipe into a pot pie by topping the casserole with gluten-free biscuit or pie dough, or puff pastry, and then baking it in a moderate hot oven until the dough is cooked through and golden brown.

For a nutrition packed meal serve your gluten-free creamed chicken recipe with sautéed summer squash, a crudité of carrots, celery, dill pickles, black olives and scallions, and a salad dressing for dipping on the side.
