This was a good idea. I’m obsessed. The waffles are gluten free of course. You can easily heat (crisp) them up the next day in a toaster too- so make extras!
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 1 inch pieces
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup canola oil
1 1/2 cup chopped onion
2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp minced ginger
1 Tbsp madras curry powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground turmeric
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 can crushed tomatoes (15 ounce) or 1 pound fresh tomatoes chopped
1 cup plain yogurt
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro chopped
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup water plus 1 Tbsp water
1 tsp. garam masala
1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
1. Sprinkle chicken breasts with 2 tsp. salt.
2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat and partially cook the chicken in the hot oil until fully browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
3. Reduce heat in skillet to medium/high. Add the chopped onion, garlic and ginger and cook until the onion turns translucent (about 8 minutes). Stir in the curry powder, cumin, turmeric, coriander, cayenne and 1 Tbsp water. Mix the tomatoes. yogurt, 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro and 1 tsp. salt into the mixture. Add your browned chicken back to the skillet. Pour 1 cup of water into the skillet, bring to a boil, sprinkle with garam masala and 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro and reduce to medium. Cover skillet with a lid and simmer until the chicken breasts are fully cooked. An instant read thermometer should read 165° F when inserted into the chicken. sprinkle with lemon juice just before serving over waffles!
Best Gluten Free Waffles-
2 cups Bob’s Red Mill all purpose flour (best if you add 18% cornstarch to the flour)
1 tsp. xantham gum
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 1/2 cups Kellogs Brown Rice Crispies
13 fl. oz milk
7 Tbsp canola oil
2 eggs separated
1. Preheat and oil your waffle iron. I set my Cuisinart to #4 heat setting
2. In a large mixing bowl, place flour, xanthan gum, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk to combine. Add the Brown Rice Crispies and combine. In a separate bowl, place the milk, oil and egg yolks and whisk to combine. Make a well in the center of your dry ingredients and pour the milk mixture into the well. Mix to combine well.
3. Use a mixer to beat your egg whites into soft peaks. Fold the egg whites into the entire mixture gently, until just incorporated (gentle white streaks in batter).
4. Ladle a cup or so of your batter into the preheated waffle iron and spread batter evenly over iron leaving a bit of room from the edges). Close lid and cook for 4 minutes. Consider your first waffle a test, mine took exactly 4 minutes to be perfectly cooked. You want them well browned and crispy. Serve immediately or keep warm in oven. As I mentioned, they crisp up best the next day in the toaster on low. Cool them completely before individually wrapping in foil for fridge storage. You can freeze them too!
