If you or your kiddos have multiple food allergies/intolerances, it can be tough coming up with meal ideas that meet all your family’s needs.  Removing both gluten and dairy sounds tough, but rest assured – there are still lots of tasty meal ideas out there!  Today, I’m sharing some of the best gluten free dairy free chicken recipes for you to try out.

Also, in case you have other allergies you’re dealing with, I’ve noted which of the other top 8 allergens are in these dishes.  In fact, many of these are top 8 allergen free!  Of course, always double check the recipe yourself in case the ingredients changed.

15 Delicious Gluten Free Dairy Free Chicken Recipes

1. Lemon Basil Grilled Chicken Thighs from Betsy Ramirez

Top 8 Allergen Free

I’m always on the lookout for more chicken thigh recipes, because the thighs always seem to be on sale at the grocery store!  This recipe is perfect – you get that herbaceous basil along with the bright lemon flavor and a little pop of balsamic as well.

2. Weeknight Chicken Curry from Food Pleasure and Health

Top 8 Allergen Free (double check spice labels for severe allergies; some may be processed in facilities with nuts)

Curry is a total comfort food for me.  The scent of it cooking smells so good and just makes me feel all cozy.  I love this weeknight curry because it can be made in under 30 minutes.

3. Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore from Dishes Delish

Top 8 Allergen Free; be sure to serve over gluten free pasta (or rice)

My instant pot has been sitting in my closet for an embarrassingly long amount of time now.  Perhaps this tasty chicken cacciatore recipe will be the motivation I need to break it out!

4. Chicken Yakisoba Noodles from I Heart Umami

Top 8 Allergen Free if coconut aminos are used (contains soy if tamari is used)

I love that this dish uses spiralized white sweet potatoes to create a crispy yakisoba style noodle – that’s grain free.  This dish also contains tons of other veggies and a homemade Worcestershire style sauce, which all comes together perfect along with the chicken.

5. BBQ Chicken and Black Bean Lettuce Wraps from Jennifer Hunt

Top 8 Allergen Free; Double check mustard to ensure GF

Sometimes, I love making a big batch of plain shredded chicken that I can then use for different recipes throughout the week.  These lettuce wraps looking like a perfect use for that shredded chicken!  You’ll make a homemade BBQ sauce to toss the chicken in, and then wrap it all up with some beans, mango, and other toppings of your choice.

6. Grilled Chicken Satay with Thai Style Peanut Sauce from Triad to Wellness

Contains peanuts and soy; be sure to choose gluten free tamari to make the dish gluten free

My husband loves a PB&J but hates peanut sauce in dishes; I am the complete opposite in that I dislike peanut butter on bread but loooove a good peanut sauce for chicken or noodles.  I could eat this grilled chicken satay any day of the week!

7. Oven Fried Chicken Tenders from Hungry Hobby

Contains tree nuts

This kid-friendly favorite uses almond meal and spices as the coating, rather than traditional flour.  They’re also baked instead of fried.  Kelli from over at Hungry Hobby tells me the coating sticks just fine to the chicken sans egg or milk, so I can’t wait to try these!

8. Classic Chicken Vegetable Soup from Prep Dish

Top 8 Allergen Free

Is there anything more comforting than a big ol’ bowl of chicken soup in the winter?!  This version from Prep Dish is so easy to make and you’ll only need a few ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen.

PS – If you’re looking for some done-for-you meal plans, Prep Dish (where the recipe above came from) is an awesome choice.  Alison, the RD who runs it, created this gluten free meal plan subscription.  Most meals on the plan have no dairy, and for the few meals that include dairy, it’s always optional (you can just skip them or sub them out).  When you sign up you get a list with 4 dinners, 1 breakfast, 1 snack, and 1 dessert recipe, along with a shopping list to go along with it.  They have both a $14 monthly meal plan option and a $99 yearly meal plan option.  (Affiliate links – if you use them I make a small commission 🙂 )

9. Braised Chicken Thighs with Wild Rice and Grapes from Sidewalk Shoes

Contains Walnuts; Free of Other Allergens

I love dishes that combine unexpected flavors, like the chicken, grapes, and wild rice in this dish.  Plus, it’s a one pan meal – hooray for little clean up!

10. Cuban Mojo Chicken from Lemon Blossoms

Top 8 Allergen Free (just remember to choose olive oil instead of butter where it gives you the option)

Have you ever had a mojo marinated piece of chicken?  It’s got this incredible, bright citrus flavor.  I personally love to pair this with an avocado/mango salad.

11. Coconut Curry Chicken Meatballs from The Bewitchin Kitchen

Contains nuts; be sure to use coconut aminos (for soy-free) or gluten free tamari sauce (contains soy) for gluten free version

If you’ve been wondering what to do with your ground chicken, this is it!  These coconut curry meatballs are incredible.  I’ve made them many times and they’re always a hit.

12. Cranberry Chicken Meatloaf from Snacking in Sneakers

Top 8 Allergen Free; be sure to choose certified gluten free oats

Another great ground chicken recipe.  I love that this meatloaf includes shredded carrots and zucchini to boost the veggie content, and mixes things up with a cranberry (instead of tomato) topping.

13. Moroccan Chicken with Artichokes and Olives from Divalicious Recipes

The artichokes, the olives, the spices, the mint – this dish just seems like it would pack in the most incredible flavor!  Definitely one of the top gluten free dairy free chicken recipes.

I would have never thought to combine cinnamon with chicken, but Linda’s recipes are always fabulous so I have no doubt this combo works!

15. Sticky Pomegranate Ginger Chicken from Lively Table

Contains soy; be sure to use tamari instead of soy sauce for gluten free

Ooooh, how I want this on my table right now.  The salty tamari, the sweet pomegranate, the rich coconut milk…it doesn’t get much better than this!
