Gluten Free Chicken Casserole
During the last year of adjusting my cooking habits to cater to the gluten free needs of my son, I have learned to become more and more creative. Last night I had one of those creative moments. My son had commented to me that he really missed being able to eat things like his grandmothers chicken casserole. I decided that there had to be way to make a gluten free alternative so last night was the night. To my surprise (and delight) it turned out very well. In place of canned cream of chicken soup I made my own (recipe located on recipe page) and in place of Ritz crackers I used gluten free pretzels. Now, before anyone tells me, I already know that gluten free pretzels are very expensive. Amazon, however, has a subscribe and save program that we have signed up for to get our pretzels, which gives not only a discount, but also free shipping. In addition to that I had enough Amazon gift cards from swagbucks that I was able to get a case of pretzels for $2.61. Other than those two substitutions I was able to follow the original recipe and the result (If I do say so myself) was delicious.
