Cooking with Scarlett

Hi everyone,
I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying the weather whoever you are. 

Today’s blog is going to be about how you can amend recipes to suit your dietary needs. I am experiencing a lot of problems with my stomach and my diet, they aren’t sure what it is yet so I am having to amend tings that I love to eat to fit in with my needs. 

I am currently Lactose free, I can’t put anything with normal milk in it near my body or it makes me really poorly, I also for some strange reason cannot eat anything tomato based as it has the same impact on my body. I now cook a lot of food myself instead of buying and eating ready made things to put in the freezer. 

My top favourite recipe is Breaded chicken wraps, this is mine and Ross’ typical Friday night dinner I’ll leave the recipe here if you want to try it: 

-Chicken breast or strips

-Egg

-Breadcrumbs (I use Gluten free ones from Tesco) 

-Spices of your choice (I use the Schwartz Fajita spices and the Garlic and Parsley)

-Oil

-Wraps

-Salad (optional).

So step one is either cut the chicken into little chunks or into strips whichever you prefer, then one by one dip them in egg, then into the bread crumb spice mix. Once coated once repeat again (the double dipping helps to make it crispier) 
Next step, put some oil into a pan and then put the chicken in and all you want to do is make sure the bread crumbs are golden and then remove the chicken and place onto an oven tray. Once you ave done this for all of the pieces place them into an oven at around 200 degrees and cook the chicken in the oven for around 10 minutes or until cooked through. 

Then once done put into wraps with your favourite sauces and some salad on top. Nice easy dinner to make and also fun if you have little kids who like to cook as well. It’s super tasty and completely free from lactose, if you wanted to make it gluten free as well just substitute normal tortilla wraps to gluten free ones. 

I have also made gluten and lactose free brownies for people at work and they also went down a treat, it’s all about knowing where to look online and also just taking a normal recipe and amending it to suit your needs. 

I am going to sign off here, I know it was a short one today but I want to leave space open to write more posts about recipes that I love to cook. If you try this out let me know what you think of them and I’d love to see pictures too! 

Signing off for now,

Scarlett x
