Gluten Free Marmalade Chicken with Rocket Potatoes is fantastic and its a very unique dish. You get that yummy orangey stickiness on your chicken and a great lemony sing with your rocket potato salad which goes great together.
Now I admit that this dish is not something I would ever make at home. I found the recipe in a Good To Know recipe Magazine and thought it sounded tasty so I thought I would give it a try. It was yummy and I believe I will be trying more recipes like it. When it comes to dinner at my house I like things to be easy so I do not usually try making things from scratch. I know I can make things from scratch I am just lazy. Hehe… I like a lot of the effort to come out of a jar.
Okay back to this recipe. Now, this recipe does contain Balsamic Vinegar which a lot of you will probably be asking is it gluten free. The answer is Yes it is gluten free. The only vinegar we Celiacs should watch out for is malt vinegar as this is made from Barley. Just check the ingredients just to be sure there is no added wheat. If there is no wheat added it is absolutely fine for you.
