    The 40 BEST Gluten-Free Mains

    This collection of great Gluten Free Recipes will make it easier to eat tasty with celiacs. One of our favorites is this creamy pesto chicken:


    • 6 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin-on
    • 8oz mushrooms, sliced
    • 8oz cherry tomatoes
    • 1 small red bell pepper, cut into strips
    • 1 small green bell pepper, cut into strips
    • 1 small orange bell pepper, cut into strips
    • 1 small onion, sliced
    • 1 zucchini, cut into strips
    • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
    • 1 cup pesto, store-bought or homemade
    • 1 cup cream
    • 1 tsp red chili flakes
    • salt to taste
    • pepper to taste
    • 2 Tbsp oil


      1. Season chicken thighs with salt, pepper and red chili flakes.
      2. Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat and, once hot, sear the chicken skin side down for 5-6 minutes till it gets a nice golden brown color. Flip and cook for another 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
      3. In the same pan, discard excess oil if any, leaving behind 2 Tbsp oil and add in all the veggies except cherry tomatoes. Sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add in garlic and stir well.
      4. Add in pesto and combine well. Cook for a couple of minutes. Add in cream and mix well.
      5. Transfer the chicken thighs back into the skillet, skin side up. Cover and cook on medium low till chicken is cooked through and internal temperature reaches at least 165°F (I prefer 190°F for fall off the bone tender).
      6. In the last 3-4 minutes, add in cherry tomatoes. Taste and adjust the seasonings to your liking.
