Gluten Free Crispy Oven-Fried Chipotle Chicken
This Gluten Free Christmas recipe makes it taste like great fried chicken. But healthier. It was submitted to me by Janine from NJ.
5 chicken thighs and 5 chicken drumsticks, skinned, or 8 small chicken breast
2 Tbs. of olive oil
1 tsp. sea salt
3 cups plain yogurt
2 medium chipotle chiles, seeded and chopped
6 medium cloves garlic, pressed
2 cups gluten free crackers
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 Tbs. dried thyme
1/2tsp chipotle powder
1 tsp. black pepper
1. Combine yogurt and chipotle in a food processor, and puree until smooth. Add garlic, and pulse until well blended. Pour into large bowl, and set aside.
2. Add chicken to yogurt-chipotle mixture, turn to coat pieces well, cover and marinate in refrigerate at least 1 hour.
3. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly coat large, shallow baking pan with olive oil, and set aside.
4. Add crackers to food processor, and pulse until coarsely ground. Add oregano, thyme, chipotle powder, salt, and pepper. Pulse to blend well. Pour onto large platter or shallow dish.
5. Remove chicken from marinade, shaking off excess. Coat each piece of chicken in cracker mixture to coat well. Place chicken on a large baking sheet, and bake 40 to 55 minutes, until cooked through and golden brown. (if crust is browned before chicken is cooked, cover baking sheet with oil, and continue baking until chicken is done). Remove from oven, and serve hot.

CRANBERRY NUT BREAD
2 cups gluten free flour (I used even amounts of sorghum, tapioca, and brown rice. I did not like teff flour in this bread for some reason- maybe it is just me!)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 Tablespoon orange zest (when I mix it in the flour I make sure it looks evenly distributed and add more if I need it)
3/4 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed (store-bought will not achieve the right flavor)
1/4 cup butter or butter substitute, melted
2 eggs (I found that the bread held together better with two eggs)
1 cup whole cranberries (I tried the bread with both the cranberries whole and sliced in half and liked the cranberries added to the bread whole best)
3/4 cup- 1 cup walnuts chopped- (I added 3/4 to the batter and another 1/4 cup to the top of the bread before I put it in the oven) a little raw sugar for the top
DIRECTIONS: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a med. bowl, sift all the dry ingredients together. Mix all the liquid ingredients together in a separate bowl. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Add the whole cranberries and 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts. Spoon the batter into a greased loaf pan (top with raw sugar and more walnuts if desired) and bake for about 45 minutes. Once the bread is done, let it cool for 10 minutes in the pan before releasing to your cooling rack.
Enjoy your gluten free Christmas and gluten free New Years!

Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe:
This is such an easy recipe.
16 oz. Belgian dark chocolate (or use your favorite dark chocolate bars)
1 cup organic light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup organic white cane sugar
3/4 cup very hot strong coffee (or use espresso powder in very hot water)
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into pieces
2 tablespoons unsweetened organic cocoa powder
8 large organic free-range eggs, at room temperature
1 tablespoon bourbon vanilla extract- yes, a tablespoon!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 10-inch Springform pan by lining the bottom with buttered parchment .
Note: Using a smaller cake pan will result in a longer baking time; adjust accordingly and keep an eye on the edges; if it browns too much while the center is still wet, wrap edges in foil; or if you are using a smaller pan, try placing it inside a warm water bath as Dorie Greenspan suggests.
Break up the dark chocolate into pieces and pour the chocolate into the bowl of the food processor . Pulse until the chocolate breaks up into small bits. Add the sugar. Pulse until the chocolate and sugar turns into an even, sandy grain.
Pour the hot water or coffee slowly into the feed tube as you pulse again. Pulse until the chocolate is melted. Magic!
Add the butter pieces and the cocoa powder , and pulse to combine. Add the eggs and vanilla, and process till smooth. The batter will be liquid and creamy.
*Note for cooks across the pond: One stick of butter here equals 8 tablespoons, or one half cup, 4 oz.
Pour the batter into the lined Springform pan. Wrap the outside of the whole pan with a big piece of foil. Bake at 350 degrees F in the center of the oven, till puffed and cracked and lovely - about 55 to 65 minutes. Note - it took an hour plus 15 minutes here at high altitude. Use a wooden toothpick to check the center of the cake; pick should emerge clean, with maybe a crumb.
Place the cake pan on a wire rack to cool. The cake will deflate. Don't worry! When cooled a bit, press down on it gently with a spatula to make it even, if you wish. Or not.
When the cake is completely cooled, cover, and chill it for three hours (up to eight hours) until serving. Release the cake from the pan. Slice and serve.
Serve slices with drizzled chocolate sauce or a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Add a few fresh berries or mint leaves to the plate, if you like.
Makes 12 - 15 slices. Very rich desert.
Enjoy your gluten free Christmas!
