Allergy Friendly Chicken Kiev

Allergy Friendly Chicken Kiev with homemade wedges

This month is Food Allergy and Celiac Disease Awareness month. So here is how I raise awareness by turning a classic dish into an allergy friendly one - Allergy Friendly Chicken Kiev. Serve this dish with homemade potato wedges and a salad.

I did make a little addition to the dish by adding a little dairy free cheese, just because cheese makes everything good. For Chicken Kiev even though the recipe is easy but the process is quite long. You have to put the chicken in the refrigerator in between each step.

It is not that hard to turn any dish into a free from allergens recipe. Even more so today as all these alternatives are available on the market, such as dairy free cheese, milk and gluten free flour etc. You just have to think a little on how and what can you substitute your allergens with.
