Gluten Free Mexican Chicken Stew

Last week another good friend made me dinner. Oh to be home, visiting friends and trying lots of new gluten free delights! She made me a dish that she frequently makes and which happens to be naturally gluten free. I’m a huge fan of eating meals that do not require altering and substituting of ingredients in order to make it safe for me. This Mexican Chicken Stew is one of these things. Naturally gluten free and completely delicious!

  • I really like simple recipes that are quick and easy to make. This one is definitely that and yet has lots of flavor. I also don’t use coriander very much, so looking forward to giving this one a go.
