Stuck for gluten free dinner ideas? Hopefully this will help!

Whilst there are 1000’s of recipes in the world, we tend to stick the same few on repeat. I thought I’d share the ones on repeat in this household so you can add them to your repertoire too!

10 Gluten Free Dinner Ideas: Tried, tested and loved by us!!


Campfire Stew

Pinch of Nom recipe. Slow cooked, shredded gammon with peppers, tomatoes, kidney beans, baked beans and mushrooms. Warming and yum!

I’d never cooked a gammon joint before this recipe – don’t be scared, its SO easy. This is what I buy – mines from Sainsburys but all the supermarkets have the same thing. Literally just take off the wrapper, stick it in the slow cooker with all the other ingredients and go!!

Chilli Mac and Cheese Pasta

My own recipe and a firm fave over winter. This is actually dairy free cheese and it still looks yummy…it must be good haha

Sticky Chicken

I’d never cooked this dish until recently and now its a weekly staple. I use this recipe by Slimming Eats – but I go for equal parts honey, soy and balsamic vinegar. Remember to use GF Soy Sauce (aka Tamari).

We serve ours with plain rice/egg fried rice and some kind of veg. Charlie loves the sticky chicken in a wrap with some crunchy lettuce too!

Chinese Fakeaway

My own recipe – tons of “Fakeaway” ideas in this guide! Covers everything from egg fried rice, sweet and sour chicken, prawn toast, the lot!!

Its HONESTLY a lot easier than you’d think. Just trust me here!!!

Hunters Chicken Pasta

My own recipe. Charlie loves Hunters Chicken – bacon wrapped chicken cooked in a tomatoey BBQ sauce and topped with yummy melted cheese. I love pasta. Combine the 2 dishes and you have an easy, delicious dish and 2 very, very happy people.

KFC Chicken

My own recipe. Another one that sounds complicated but its super duper easy. I’ve included tons of pics in the instructions to ensure its “finger lickin’ good!!”. I get a lot of DMs from happy chefs that have made this and its put a big smile on their faces!!

Perfect with chips, bbq beans and gravy!!

Homemade Kievs

Pinch of Nom Recipe. I was honestly amazed when my first batch of kievs turned out just like the picture.

5 mins to prep then you just shove them in the oven. My kind of weekday dinner. Perfect for using up the ends of the loaf!!

Salmon and Tomato Rice

My own recipe. TERRIBLE pic – apologies!! Veggie rice (kind of like a risotto but a lot less faff) and salmon drizzled with sweet chilli sauce. We have this every Monday night after I’ve been to the shop!

Chicken and Chorizo Jambalya

BBC Good Food recipe. Picture says it all! One pot dishes for the win.

Loaded Nachos

We have some kind of variation of loaded nachos EVERY Saturday. We always cook one of the toppings below, place over the top of some nachos, sprinkle with cheese and bake for 5 mins until its all melted and yum.

Here’s some ideas:

  • Shredded Chicken – place your chicken bread in an oven proof dish, scatter with spices (we use Old El Paso BBQ Seasoning), cover with foil and bake at 180oC for 30 mins. Remove from the oven, shred the chicken with 2 forks, scatter with some more spices and return to the oven for 5 mins
  • Pulled Pork – Iceland own or Jolly Hog (in Sainsburys)
  • Veggie Feast!! Avocado, salsa, sundried tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, whatevers going!!
  • Cheeseburger NachosAsda recipe

Nacho recommendations – we just use supermarket own “salted tortilla chips” (most are gf but check yours!!) or Mister Freed Cheesie flavour.
