Gluten Free Recipes: Easy Orange Ginger Chicken

Now that school has begun, life just gets busier and busier. I want to put a good meal on the table for dinner, but how and when and who has time to slave over anything these days. Not me! 

So here’s to easy gluten free recipes! Time to turn to one of your handiest gadgets in your kitchen. The skillet! A large one is needed here, ohh about a 10 or 12 inch one will work. And the directions are easy and the meal comes together quickly. If you don’t have time to cook regular rice, go ahead and use instant. I’m not telling anybody and the food police will not bang on your door. If you have guilt pangs, then use instant brown rice.
