Gluten free chicken kiev (also dairy free!)

So today I’m back with another recipe! This is something I’ve wanted to make for absolutely ages! There have been a few gluten-free versions on the market, but I also avoid milk and egg so they were a no go! But I’ve finally mastered it:gluten free chicken kiev! 


This gluten free chicken kiev recipe is also dairy free! This dairy free chicken perfect midweek dinner and a great alternative to normal chicken kievs.

As you might know from my newly diagnosed with Coeliac Disease post, I am a Genius ambassador and one of my projects have been to come up with some yummy free from recipes using their products. I came up with this easy to cook, gluten and dairy free chicken Kiev by using their soft white farmhouse loaf. As it’s dairy free, I used a combination of dairy free spread, garlic, lemon and chives to create the ‘buttery’ filling. I’m excited it actually held and that the butter came oozing out when I cut into it! Here’s the recipe…
