Mmmm, love the garlic

Wish Bone Italian dressing is an easy gluten and casein free marinade for chicken. I just add fresh garlic. Because, as you'll see from today's meal, we love garlic.
(FYI- There is a shopping guide here for salad dressings that are gluten and casein free.)

I let the boneless chicken thighs marinate for a few hours and then we grilled them.

While the chicken was marinating, I roasted a bulb of garlic in olive oil for garlic mashed potatoes.

If you've never roasted garlic, it's easy. Just cut the top off the bulb....

...and drizzle with EVOO.

Wrap in foil and roast for one hour in a 350 degree oven. Or do it on the grill like I did. It smelled so good it drove the neighbors crazy.

It looks like this when it's done. It smells amazing.

Boil potatoes and mash with FlaxMilk, ghee (clarified butter), and the soft roasted cloves of garlic (squeeze them out or use a small spoon). Top with fresh chives. Garlic mashed potatoes, gluten and casein free!

The potatoes went great with the chicken. We had fresh veggies, too. No garlic on those. We didn't want to over-do it.

  1. YUM.

    we love garlic too.

    Tell Java and Bean that the garlic they are eating may very well have come from Gilroy, CA which is a nearby town to where we live. It is the self-proclaimed garlic center of the US, and they just this past weekend had their annual garlic festival where you can get all kinds of yummy garlic foods--and even garlic icea cream! (I have not tried it, but someday will have to!)
