Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

Don't have celery seed in the spice rack? You can opt to leave it out of the sauce and add some chopped fresh celery to the salad, if desired.

This chicken is great cold, too. Try shredding and tucking into a gluten-free pita or wrap with some of the dressed salad.
