Gluten Free Oatmeal Creme Pies
Let’s be honest with ourselves… Take out food is probably the worst and best part of being an adult having what ever you want for dinner. I can’t deny that I myself have done it more times then i am proud to admit! Especially when it comes to Japanese or Chinese takeout food! BUT…
What is the BEST PART about Japanese or Chinese takeout?
If you’re anything like me it’s the rice. I NEEEEDDD ALL THE CARBS!
No but seriously, the fried rice is probably my favorite! All the flavors have melded together in perfect harmony and the smell is unbelievable!
Is your mouth watering yet?
Today, I behold to you this spicy chicken fried rice. A delicious twist on your favorite takeout food with an insanely amazing kick! No need to order out anymore instead keep that money in your pocket and eat your favorite takeout food!
I am so excited to share this spicy chicken fried rice with you! It is probably hands down one of my favorite recipes to make because it is so full of flavor and how incredibly easy it is make (you won’t believe it!).
The recipe is perfect to make with leftover chicken or even, dare I say, canned chicken. Yes! I said it! If it is rinsed well (just take a wire mesh colander and rinse with hot water) no one will even be able to tell. I think that is what make the spicy chicken fried rice the perfect week day night dinner!
Check it out!
2 Chicken Breasts cooked and shredded
3 Cups of Cooked Rice
1 cup Frozen corn
2 Cups Frozen peas and chopped carrots mixed
2 red Chile Peppers chopped (you can customize to your taste)
1 cup Slice Mushrooms
1 clove garlic
1/2 of a small white onion
3-4 Tbsp Soy Sauce (depending on your taste)
1-2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
Take a large skillet and preheat the coconut oil. Chop your garlic and place in pan with the onion. Add in your chile peppers, chicken and mushrooms. Let saute for a couple of minutes. Then add in your rice and mix around so that the rice can take on the taste.
Add in your frozen vegetables (you can use fresh vegetables but they need to be cooked and cold before going into the pan). Let the vegetables cook and then add in your soy sauce. Let cook for about 5 minutes on low until all the flavors have melded together.
Serve hot or use as meal prep for the best lunches in the office! Everyone will be envious, trust me!
Can I say that?
I mean it had us begging for more when it was gone! This spicy chicken fried rice is out of this world and perfect for lunches, dinner, meal prep, freezer meals, late night dinner (probably when your craving that takeout food the most!), or leftovers! I am always a huge fan of leftovers.
If you’re vegetarian you can make this without the chicken and it is still perfect! Just literally leave out the chicken and scarf down. No big deal.
I could seriously go on and on about this spicy chicken fried rice to the point that you may not want it anymore but I promise I won’t! I will let you be the judge of it! Go ahead make it! I want to hear how much you love it!
I am sure your probably thinking that this chick has entirely too many granola recipes and you’re asking yourself, “Why?” or maybe more like, “This chick is nuts!”
Like these Chocolate Peanut butter Granola Bars! …
You know, those tiny little biscuits that are probably laced with some addictive substance other than food that they serve at Red Lobster? Yes, I am talking about those!
I am serious though they probably put like crack in there or something! (all jokes aside though!)
We were at this delicious seafood restuarant the other day to celebrate an early Mother’s day, Promotion at work and all the good things that come with life when all of a sudden the waitress brought a tiny basket filled with 4 cheddar bay biscuits… I opened my mouth instinctively and said “…is that it?” Because let’s be honest you go there for the cheddar bay biscuits. She told me she would bring more but didn’t want to overwhelm. and I said “you mean tempt right?”
Needless to say sitting in that booth I concocted ideas of how to make those little gems we call cheddar bay biscuits and this beautiful recipe was created. Full of garlic, cheese, taste and the same addictiveness as before. Probably not the best idea I had come up with to make them considering I am on a health kick but… whatever, they are gluten free. No pain no gain!!
1 1/2 cups Brown Rice Flour
2/3 cup Tapioca Starch
1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
1 Tbsp Unrefined Sugar (I use coconut palm sugar)
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
2 tsp. Granulated Garlic (If you can find it roasted it is the best!)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Cayenne
Pinch of Spanish Paprika (for the flavor!)
1 cup Buttermilk (1 cup of any milk with 1 tsp Lemon Juice)
1/2 cup Coconut Oil melted
1 1/2 cup Shredded Cheese
Melted Butter (or coconut Oil just add a tiny bit of salt for taste)
1 Tbsp Parsley
1/2 tsp Granulated Garlic
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix together your brown rice flour, tapioca starch, xanthan gum, sugar, baking powder and spices. Set aside. Mix together your buttermilk, coconut oil and cheese. Using a stand or hand mixer slowly add the dry mix to the wet mixture until combined well. Take about 1-2 inch portions and set them onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper or sprayed with non stick spray. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool and serve warm with dinner or as a snack!
They are so good! I could easily eat probably a good dozen before I realize how many I have actually eaten and how many calories are probably actually in them, but hey I keep telling myself that there are worse things that I could eat, which is true, but it is a issue when you have to put them down that is for sure.
These cheddar bay biscuits are perfect for pasta night (gluten free of course!), paired with salads for lunch, snacks for work or probably my favorite, breakfast sandwiches! Yes, making them about 3 inches in diameter and putting some egg, bacon and cheese in the middle makes an amazing sandwich! AND WHO EVER SAID THERE IS SUCH A THING AS TOO MUCH CHEESE IS A LIAR. Just had to get my peace out there!
What are some of your favorite things to pair with biscuits and things?
OH PS: The lobster pizza at Red Lobster is AMAZING!
Have a good week!
Can I be honest with you? I mean really honest? I need to admit something.
I LOVE CHEESE!
I am seriously, hopelessly in LOVE with CHEESE!
Okay, so maybe not exactly a juicy secret, but still it’s so true! As long as it isn’t too stinky. So, when a neighbor surprised me with a basket full of goodies and Gouda cheese was in there I can certainly tell you I made plans for that right away! …
I have a serious confession to make.
I LOVE Burrito Bowls! Yes, I know totally crazy! Ignore the fact that half the people my age (mid twenties) are absolutely obsessed with chipotle, Moe’s or Salsarita (my jam!), because let’s be honest burrito bowls are just plain amazing. So when I started making burrito bowl stuffed peppers I just knew I had to share. …
So, this past week has been met with WARM weather! Not the normal February weather that I have been used to for the last 9 years. Needless to say I am pretty flippin’ happy that it isn’t 15 degrees and happy so I will definitely take it! That and all the beautiful flowers are blooming and there is no end in site of this gorgeous weather! …
Can we talk about delicious foods for just a minute?
Okay, I know we talk about food all the time but what about high protein, high fiber and high in tasting good food? When does that ever happen?
NEVER, I TELL YOU! …
You absolutely love s’mores! In fact you love them so much, but you hate to stand over the gas stove with a marshmallow on a skewer or toast them in the oven. In the middle of the day too! SO the whole house warms up just for a few smores? Is it worth it? sure it is, but what about something that cools you down instead? Like Freezer smores! …
I am always craving cheese. It is a serious curse. I mean cheese is probably full of all of the bad things that I can’t have but it is also full of love, joy, happiness and yumminess. So, it more than cancels itself out. Right?
Sure, I am right!
I am always right! Especially when it comes to cheese! (not always right FYI!) …
