Gluten Free Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Soup

Ingredients

    • 2 cups of milk
    • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
    • 1/2 cup chicken broth
    • 10 oz. can enchilada sauce
    • 15 oz. can black beans (rinsed & drained)
    • 15 oz. can whole kernel corn (rinsed & drained)
    • 14.5 oz. can Rotel diced tomatoes
    • 1 small red onion, diced
    • 1 green pepper, diced
    • 1 lb. chicken breast
  • 1 tsp. salt

Directions

    1. Mix milk and cornstarch. Bring to a gentle boil on the stove, stirring occasionally until it thickens. Remove from heat.
    1. Add to Crock Pot with the rest of the ingredients. Mix together.
    1. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or on HIGH for 4 hours.
    1. Once cooked through, remove chicken breast and shred with two forks.
    1. Add chicken back to the Crock Pot and mix together.
  1. Enjoy!

This is the perfect recipe when you need to throw something into the Crock Pot for a quick meal!

If you don’t want to make it in the Crock Pot, you can easily make it on the stove. I’d recommend baking the chicken in the oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees and then shredding it. Let everything simmer together on the stove for a while and your soup is good to go!

This soup tastes great with tortilla chips or biscuits. (Gluten free of course!)

Instant Pot Chicken in Red Wine Sauce /Recipe

Instant Pot Chicken in Red Wine Sauce

Instant Pot Chicken in Red Wine Sauce

Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 45 min

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon to 2 olive or vegetable oil
  • 3 or 4 slices bacon (about 3 ounces / 85 grams), cut crosswise into ½-inch (1.25 cm) lardons
  • 6 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, about 5 ounces (140 grams) each, trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 cup (250 ml) red wine, such as Beaujolais Villages
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 piece bay leaf
  • 1 pinch fine salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons (45 grams) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 pound (250 grams) button mushrooms, quartered if large
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup to ½ cup (60 to 120 ml) low-sodium chicken stock (optional)
  • Buttered broad noodles, for serving

Directions

  1. Using the Sauté function, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in the pressure cooker. Add the bacon and cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a plate. You should have about 3 tablespoons of rendered fat left in the pressure cooker—if necessary, add an additional 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  2. Dry the chicken thighs thoroughly with paper towels and add them to the pressure cooker. (You may need to do this in batches.) Cook until golden on all sides, 7 to 8 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Turn off the Sauté function.
  3. Add the wine and stir, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon. Add the garlic, tomato paste, thyme, and bay leaf. Season lightly with salt and pepper and stir to combine. Return the bacon and the chicken thighs to the pot, along with any juices from the plate, arranging the chicken skin-side down to absorb more color from the wine. Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes.
  4. While the chicken cooks, in a medium skillet, melt 2 tablespoons (30 grams) of the butter over medium-high heat until foamy. When the foam has started to subside, add the mushrooms and cook, shaking the pan frequently, until the mushrooms are tender and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  5. In a small bowl, mash the flour into the remaining 1 tablespoon (15 grams) butter until it forms a smooth paste (this is the beurre manié).
  6. When the chicken has finished cooking, manually release the steam. Transfer the chicken to a plate, leaving the liquid in the pot. Discard the bay leaf.
  7. Using the Sauté function, bring the cooking liquid to a simmer. With a wire whisk, beat in the beurre manié until the sauce becomes glossy and coats the back of a spoon. If the sauce becomes too thick, add the stock, starting with 1 tablespoon. Taste and adjust the seasonings, adding more salt and pepper as desired.
  8. Return the chicken, along with any juices from the plate, and mushrooms to the pressure cooker and heat them through in the sauce. Serve with buttered broad noodles.
  9. BEURRE MANIÉ: Sauces are one of the pressure cooker’s weak points, as liquid cannot evaporate and reduce while it is sealed. Flour or other starch added to the pressure cooker before sealing could burn on the bottom or clog the vent holes. Given these factors, the sauce of a dish braised in the pressure cooker is thin. It’s up to you, then, to thicken it. A classic beurre manié—or “kneaded butter”—is the perfect solution. Composed of equal parts flour and butter that have been mashed together, the paste is whisked into hot braising liquid at the end of the cooking time, turning the sauce thick and glossy, without lumps. Beurre manié is extremely easy to make—just use a fork to mash butter and flour together on a plate. But to save time, you can prepare a large quantity in the food processor. Divide it into 1-tablespoon portions and store them in the freezer. When you need to thicken a sauce, simply throw a frozen lump into your boiling braising liquid and whisk away.

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken pot Pie

Ingredients

For the crust 3 c. all-purpose flour, plus more for surface 1 tsp.

baking powder 1 tsp.

kosher salt 1 c.

unsalted butter, cut into 1/2″ pieces 1/2 c.

ice water (or more, if needed) For the filling 4

boneless skinless chicken breasts (or 3 cups shredded cooked chicken) 1/2 c.

butter, plus more for baking dish

kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper 2

large carrots, peeled and diced 1

medium onion, chopped 3

cloves garlic, minced 3/4 c.

all-purpose flour 3 c.

low-sodium chicken broth 1/4 c.

heavy cream 1 c.

frozen peas 2 tbsp.

freshly chopped parsley 2 tsp.

freshly chopped thyme leaves

Egg wash

Flaky sea salt

Directions

  1. Make dough: Place flour and butter into freezer for 30 minutes before starting crust process. In a large food processor, pulse flour, baking powder, and salt until combined. Add butter and pulse until pea-sized and some slightly larger pieces form. With the machine running, add ice water into feed tube, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough just come together and is moist but not wet and sticky (test by squeezing some with your fingers).
  2. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface, form into 2 balls, and flatten into 2 discs (making sure there are no/minimal cracks). Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Cook chicken: Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a large baking dish with butter and grease one side of a large piece of parchment with butter. Season chicken all over with salt and pepper then place in baking dish. Place buttered side of parchment paper over chicken, so that chicken is completely covered. Bake until chicken is cooked through, 30 to 40 minutes. Let reset 10 minutes before cutting into cubes.
  4. Meanwhile, start filling: In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter. Add onions and carrots and cook until vegetables are beginning to soften, about 10 minutes. Stir in garlic, then stir in flour and cook until the flour mixture is golden and beginning to bubble. Gradually whisk in chicken broth. Bring mixture to a boil and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in heavy cream, cubed chicken, peas, parsley and thyme. Season mixture with salt and pepper.
  5. Assemble pie: On a lightly floured surface, roll out one disc of dough into a large round about ¼” thick. Place in a shallow pie dish then add filling. Roll out second disc of dough into a large round about ¼” thick and place on top of filling. Trim and crimp edges, then use a paring knife to create slits on top. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
  6. Reduce heat to 375° and bake pie until crust is golden, about 45 minutes. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.
