When switching to a gluten-free lifestyle, many of the old favorites are no longer safe, especially when it comes to marinade. The below recipe, made with Massel’s gluten-free bouillon, is super simple and offers the perfect taste for a summer dinner.

The ingredient list for this gluten-free chicken marinade is rather short and it only needs to sit for an hour, so you don’t have to plan TOO far ahead of time if you’re not into that sort of thing. Check out this Hidden Valley recipe below and see if it’s up your alley!

Ingredients

Instructions

Mix the Hidden Valley seasoning mix with the gluten-free chicken broth (made from 1 cube of Massel gluten-free bouillon) and the mustard until smooth.

After 1 hour, remove the chicken from the bag and place on the grill for about 10-12 minutes on each side. If using a meat thermometer, the chicken should be 165 degrees Fahrenheit before removing from grill.

KIND Bars: New Gluten-Free Options

By July 12, 2014 Gluten-Free Products

I’m a KINDA-holic, because let’s be honest, they’re the jackpot when it comes to gluten-free snacks on-the-go. Since I adore them so much, I was super pumped to hear that they have new gluten-free flavors…can I get a WOO WOO?!

STRONG & KIND Savory Gluten-Free Snack Bars

Here’s the thing, their new line of STRONG & KIND Savory snack bars are totally…weird. When I say weird, I mean you’re not used to eating these flavors in the form of a nut or granola bar. They are listed below:

  • Honey Smoked BBQ – a smoky-sweet mix of cayenne chili and clove with a hint of cinnamon
  • Honey Mustard – a blend of mustard seed, chipotle chili and turmeric finished with smooth honey
  • Roasted Jalapeno – a spicy union of jalapeno chilies, onions and garlic
  • Thai Sweet Chili – an exotic fusion of ginger, coriander, cinnamon, jalapeno and basil

I’m going to be honest; these flavors are not my cup of tea. I felt like I should have been eating a rolled up piece of hickory smoked turkey, not a mix of nuts. BUT, I shared these gluten-free gems with some folks I know (gluten-eaters, I must add). The consensus was that the STRONG & KIND bars were awesome. To quote a handsome young fella I’m quite fond of, “Dat jalapeno ish be the ish” (Translation: “The Roasted Jalapeno KIND bar was really good.”)

I also shared the bars with a co-worker who is an avid backpacker. He thought that biting into one of those bars on a hike would be perfect. The STRONG line of KIND bars are available on kindsnacks.com and at grocers nationwide, so keep an eye out.

I think I’m going to let those manly men enjoy the STRONG & KIND bars while I stick with my dark chocolate-esque flavors.

KIND Nuts & Spices Gluten-Free Snack Bars

KIND also released two new flavors to their Nuts & Spices line of bars. Now this is MY ish. The two new flavors are:

  • Caramel Almond & Sea Salt – savory sea-salt and sweet caramel drizzled over crunchy almonds
  • Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond – dark roast coffee and whole almonds blended with honey and drizzled in dark chocolate

When I ate the Caramel Almond & Sea Salt bar I decided that it was my new favorite flavor. So yummy and the perfect 3 p.m. pick-me-up at work! The Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond flavor was delish as well and I’m sure the coffee lovers be going crazy over it. I’ll definitely be stocking up on these flavors in the future.

KIND Gluten-Free Granola

All you granola lovers are in for a treat when it comes to the three new KIND Healthy Grains Clusters that are available:

  • Fruit & Nut Clusters – five super grains mixed with crunchy almonds and sweet cranberries and raisins
  • Raspberry Clusters with Chia Seeds – five super grains mixed with tart raspberries, sweet cranberries, and crunchy chia seeds, all with a hint of vanilla
  • Banana Nut Clusters – five super grains mixed with sweet bananas, crunchy pecans and a dash of cinnamon

What’s not to love about all of these flavorful options?
