Expert Tips

  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
  • Serve this chicken with a fresh green salad.
  • Olive tapenade can be made with green, black or a mixture of olives. A small amount contributes a lot of flavor. Look for olive tapenade near the olives, roasted peppers and other condiments in your supermarket.
