  4. Hi Kate:

    Hm, well, this recipe would not be good for your friends daughter then. Perhaps she could substitute another type of meat?

    Thanks for commenting! See you on Foodbuzz, right?

    I am not, nor my family allergic on anything. I made chicken tenders bit different, however I had to mention your name in my blog because I want even my readers to see that there is an option for people that are going through food allergies or if they are going to cook for friend who are having them. Your website is so helpful, and really give people chooses to still enjoy food without worrying!
    So thank you for sharing tips and recipes!

  8. HI Mary:

    I’m on round two of the flu myself! Hope you feel better soon. I promised you this video was coming! Hope you and Alex enjoy it!

    These chicken tenders were AWESOME! They exceeded my expectations 10-fold. I actually ran out of my Glutino rice crumbs about halfway thru and switched to regular breadcrumbs that my husband and I could eat. My VERY PICKY husband actually like the allergy free version better as he thought the regular bread crumbs picked up a lot more of the oil. Have you ever tried this with chicken pieces for traditional friend chicken? I was thinking that tempura veggies or eggplant would be good with this too. The olive oil/rice milk emulsion seems to open up doors for frying without egg. THANK YOU! You continue to open up my eyes to methods of cooking that work for the allergy friendly!

    Wow, Carolyn, what kind words! So happy you all enjoyed the tenders. I’ve been doing the olive oil/rice milk emulsion since my first book The Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook, as a replacement for eggs in battering/breading in fried/oven baked foods, but nobody every seemed to notice before! I’m glad you did. It’s one of my signature allergen-free concepts! Hope you continue to enjoy it.

    All best,
