How to Cook the Chicken

Ingredients:

3-4 lbs. chicken pieces
16 oz. zesty Italian dressing
2 cups BBQ sauce

Method:

  1. Marinate. Add chicken and dressing to a gallon-sized Ziplock bag and marinate for at least one hour (preferably overnight).
  2. Cook. Pour all contents of bag into Instant Pot, lock lid, and use poultry setting (20 minutes, high pressure). Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to naturally release (about 30 minutes). Meanwhile – pour BBQ sauce into a medium-sized bowl. Preheat oven broiler on high.
  3. Char. Carefully individually remove each piece of chicken from Instant Pot with tongs. As you remove them, dip in the BBQ sauce and place on a lined baking sheet. Then place baking sheet under a high broiler for at least 5 minutes, but basically until you have the desired char and caramelization.

Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Gluten-Free Fried Chicken | The Foodie Eats

Gluten-Free Fried Chicken

It seems like every time my wife has a baby, she has to cut something else out of her diet. For one reason or another. After our first daughter was born, bye-bye gluten. And after our second, bye-bye dairy. Well, how in the heck am I ever supposed to eat fried chicken for dinner at home ever again? So, it has become one of the callings of my life to create delicious gluten- and dairy-free food. And in this case specifically… dairy- and gluten-free fried chicken. But still using the buttermilk I so desperately love!

Dairy-Free Buttermilk. Possible? Yes.

It’s super simple to make. The ratio is 1 part lemon juice, 15 parts soy milk. So for this particular recipe, what I do is this: Add 2 oz / 4 Tablespoons / 1/4 cup (it’s all the same) of lemon juice to a measuring cup. Then fill to the 4 cup mark with soy milk. Let sit for 10 minutes. And that’s it – dairy-free buttermilk. Then soak chicken for at least 2 hours. It’s a buttermilk brine. Not absolutely necessary, but totally worth the wait.

Gluten-Free Fried Chicken | The Foodie Eats

Yes, Most Gluten-Free Flour is Ew.

But Not This One!

I know the packaging says baking, but I’ve yet to find a recipe that I can’t literally swap out this flour. Of course, some work better than others, but I’ve found it is BY FAR the most versatile gluten-free flour. And I’m not quite sure why it’s not labeled as an all-purpose flour, because that’s how I use it. It makes some seriously good gluten-free fried chicken!

Gluten-Free Fried Chicken | The Foodie Eats

I Can’t Believe I’m About to Say This, But…

Use This

Not This

And Here’s Why!

I think the biggest mistake people make when cooking friend chicken is to have the oil at too high of a temperature. It’s a tricky thing. And while I’m always looking for any excuse to use my Cast Iron Skillet, which is actually perfect for fried chicken, I also like to take out the guess work in cooking as much as possible. So I opt for an Electric Skillet when it comes to frying chicken. And here’s why…


The only way to fully cook fried chicken on the stovetop without having to transfer it to the oven is to keep the temperature low. In my opinion, the ideal temp is 350F. This will allow the internal temperature of the chicken to come up before the flour begins to brown. Or worse, burn. But if your flour browns too quickly, you will definitely need to transfer it to the oven to complete the cooking process. Otherwise, it will be burned for sure.

Gluten-Free Fried Chicken | The Foodie Eats

This is why I’m a big proponent of an electric skillet for this gluten-free fried chicken. It will regulate the temperature for you, leaving you time to focus on another element of you meal. Or even better, the sauce for your chicken! But if you just want to buy your sauce, I highly recommend checking out “That Sweet Hottness” from Masterchef Season 8 Top 20 Contestant Yachecia.

Chilled Corn Soup

Whole-Food, Plant-Based

I love a great soup. And I love to cook meals where the ingredients are both seasonal and local. But since summers in Florida are so hot, I’m rarely in the mood for soup for about half the year.  So this year, I’ve really been into chilled soups. I was recently asked to cook for a dinner party where the guest of honor is vegan. And since we live just a few miles from all the Zellwood Sweet Corn farms, it was a no-brainer that corn would be the star! So please allow me to introduce our latest creation: a chilled corn soup. It’s a play on creamed corn, but with a bit of coconut and a hint of spice.

Pressure Cooker Southern Baked Beans

Pressure Cooker Southern Baked Beans

This pressure cooker southern baked beans recipe is incredibly simple to make and full of rich, sweet, and savory flavors. And it’s perfect for all your summer BBQ’s and picnics.

Cooked from Scratch

My wife is a huge proponent of cooking from scratch for two reasons: 1. It’s typically cheaper than purchasing pre-made food. 2. You have total control of the ingredient list and can minimize artificial additives.

However, there’s one draw back to cooking from scratch: It’s time consuming. Unless, of course, you own one of these:

Because this recipe is made in a pressure cooker, the hands-on time is relatively low. After quickly sautéing the bacon, onions and green pepper, add the rest of the ingredients, lock the lid, close the pressure valve, set the manual time for 60 minutes and walk away! No waiting hours for the beans to simmer on the stove top. And the result is a pot of delicious southern baked beans from scratch with minimal hands-on time!

The Truth About Salt & Beans

Do you know why you wait to add salt until your beans are fully cooked? Most people, like myself for a long time, think it’s because it helps the beans cook more quickly. This seems true, but is actually an illusion. The real reason to wait is this… Salt makes the skin of the beans tough, which is why they then take longer to cook. So this is probably the only time I will ever recommend you wait until the end to season your food. Only with beans!

Easy Peasy Lemon-Thyme Bundt Pan Chicken

Lemon-Thyme Bundt Pan Chicken: With roasted vegetables, this easy, one pan meal is the perfect weeknight dinner.

Lemon-Thyme Bundt Pan Chicken

Why a Bundt Pan?

We’ve all heard of one-pan meals, but a bundt pan – for chicken? Trust me, though a bundt pan may not be your go-to pan for cooking dinner, once you try this Lemon-Thyme Bundt Pan Chicken, you’ll never look at bundt pans the same way!


Unlike casserole dishes, where the edges of the pan cook faster than the center, a bundt pan allows the chicken and vegetables to cook evenly. The result is perfectly baked chicken with crispy skin, and flavorful, tender vegetables.

And, when dinner’s done, there’s only one pan to clean. You can’t beat that!

Lemon Thyme Bundt Pan Chicken | With roasted vegetables, this easy, one pan meal is the perfect weeknight dinner. | Gluten-Free

Flavorful Veggies, Endless Options

Nestled under slices of lemon, sprigs of fresh thyme and chicken, the vegetables are roasted with tons of flavor. We use potatoes, fennel, carrots and mushrooms, but there are endless options for veggies. Switch the fennel for celery in a pinch, throw in some parsnips or turnips, leave out mushrooms if you’re not a fan, and enjoy your own personal favorites.

Pressure Cooker Sausage Kale Potato Soup

The Mistake Everybody Makes…

I love sausage in soups. But here’s the problem. Almost every soup recipe I come across will use the sausage to add flavor to the soup. That’s a great intention, but (in my opinion) it’s actually a total fail. If you boil it for any extended period of time, all the flavor will go into the broth. And then you’re left with flavorless sausage. This pressure cooker sausage kale potato soup delivers!

Check out the recipe below to see how to retain the crispiness of the sausage.

Pressure Cooker Risotto

With Spring Peas and Mint

I am pleasantly surprised at how much I’m loving pressure cooker risotto. Gone are the days of ‘keep it moving’ and “one ladle at a time.’ Every time I cook risotto in my Instant Pot, it is perfect. So unless you need to be “authentic” in your preparation, I highly recommend giving it a try.

The Tools

I’ve been putting off getting a mortar and pestle for years. But what a great tool for making pastes and grinding fresh spices! I can foresee myself finding as many excuses to use it as possible. It really does help take your ingredients to the next level of amazing.
