Gluten Free Chicken Alfredo Rollups

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

Are you looking for a new dish to spice up your weeknight dinner routine? These Gluten Free Chicken Alfredo Rollups are sure to be a new family fave! My family thoroughly enjoyed them and told me that they could not wait until I make them again. Even though this particular dish is Gluten Free, you can sub out the gluten free lasagna noodles for regular if you prefer. Serve with your favorite salad and bread and you have one delicious dinner!

Gluten Free Chicken Rollups

Ingredients:

10 Gluten Free lasagna noodles (I prefer this brand)

3 cups of cooked, shredded chicken. A rotisserie chicken works great for this!

15 oz. tub of Ricotta cheese

1 jar of your favorite Alfredo Sauce

Salt/pepper to taste

1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder

1/2 tsp. Onion Powder

1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning or Oregano

2 cups shredded Mozarella Cheese

1 cup fresh, shaved parmesan cheese

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook the Gluten Free pasta in boiling water just until al dente. Do not overcook. You want the noodles to be cooked firm enough to handle. They will finish the cooking process in the oven.

When the noodles have finished cooking, lay them on a flat surface such as a large baking sheet.

In a large bowl, combine the shredded chicken, ricotta cheese and spices.

In the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish, pour some of the alfredo sauce for the noodles to sit on top of. This will help to keep the bottom of the noodles moist.

Begin the rollup process by adding several tablespoons of the chicken mixture onto the lasagna noodle. Make sure to leave enough room so that you can roll up the noodle.

Continue this process until all 10 noodles are filled with the chicken ricotta mixture and rolled up in the baking dish.

Add the remaining alfredo sauce on the top of the noodles.

Top with the mozzarella and parmesan cheese.

I like to sprinkle extra Italian Seasoning on top of the dish.

Cove the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 2o minutes. Then, remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes until everything is bubbly.

Serve and enjoy!

Three Ingredient Pretzel Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

I don’t know about you, but the name of the game for dinner lately is definitely Easy. I had some chicken tenders in the freezer and thought to myself how it would be good to mix honey mustard and pretzels as a topping for the chicken. Boy, was I on to something. My boys could not stop talking about these Three Ingredient Pretzel Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders! Give it a try. I think that you will love this delicious and super easy dish as much as we did. How can you go wrong with a three ingredient dish?

Three Ingredient Pretzel Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders

Ingredients: 

2 lb. Chicken Tenders

1 bag of your favorite pretzels crushed (I used GF pretzels to make this a GF dish) I would suggest that you keep some of the pieces larger for a crunchy texture on the chicken

1 bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

Instructions: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place the crushed pretzels onto a plate.

Squeeze about 3/4 of the bottle of Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce onto a plate. You can save the rest of the sauce in the bottle to dunk your tenders in when you serve them.

Dip each tender in the Honey Mustard then into the crushed pretzels to coat.

Place on a baking pan that has been covered with aluminum foil. This just allows for no sticking and easy cleanup.

Bake at 350 degrees for around 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the pretzel topping is golden brown.

Serve with your favorite veggie and enjoy!

Easy Shepherd’s Pie

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

For many of us, cooking from what we have in our pantries right now is essential! One of my boys’ favorite things that I make very often on rotation is this Easy Shepherd’s Pie. This recipe couldn’t be easier to prepare and you can use whatever veggies that you have on hand. It really is such a versatile recipe. You can even use a Onion Soup packet to give it more flavor and change up the cheeses for a different taste!

We even make a BBQ Chicken version of this that you can find HERE.

Easy Shepherd’s Pie

Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef or ground turkey

1/4 onion

2 Tbsp. minced garlic

1 can of corn, drained (you can use whatever veggies your family prefers)

1 can of green beans, drained

1/4 cup shredded mozarella cheese

1 container of Refrigerated Mashed Potatoes (you can also use instant if that is what you have on hand, but these are BOGO this week at Publix) I suggest that you cook these in the microwave for around 3 minutes.

Seasoned Salt/Pepper for Taste

Several pats of butter

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a skillet sautee the onion and garlic together just until soft.

Add in the ground beef and cook through.

Toss in the drained canned vegetables and toss together with the hamburger mixture.

Add seasoned salt and pepper to taste.

In a square baking/casserole dish add the hamburger/veggie mixture.

Top with 1/4 cup shredded mozarella cheese.

Place the microwaved mashed potatoes on top.

I like to take a fork to “rake” out the potatoes on top of the dish.

Add 5-6 pats of butter on top of the dish. I also like to sprinkle on some seasoned salt and pepper on the top.

Cook in a preheated 350 degree oven for around 20-25 minutes.

For the last 5 minutes of baking, I like to turn the broiler on in the oven and let it brown the potatoes slightly.

Serve and Enjoy! Be sure to let me know if you make this!

5-6 small red potatoes cubed (any smaller potato would work)
