Description

Have your one pot pasta and eat it too with this FAILSAFE friendly version of the classic dish. Made with gluten-free pasta, chicken, leeks, and celery, this dish is as easy as it is delicious.

Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil (or safflower, sunflower, rice bran oil)
  • 1 pound chicken (cubed)
  • 1 cup leeks (or one medium sized leek, ends cut off and chopped)
  • 2 stalks celery (ends trimmed and cut into small pieces)
  • 12 ounces gluten free noodles (I used Tinkyada organic brown rice spirals) (see note about pasta options)
  • 2 1/2-3 cups chicken broth (make sure to use a safe brand or homemade)
  • salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat 1/4 cup of oil in a large sauté pan or skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and sauté until no longer pink on the outside.

  2. Add in leeks and celery and sauté for another 3-5 minutes or until vegetables are bright green.

  3. Add in pasta and broth and bring to a boil.

  4. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover, cooking for 2 minutes less than what the box says (I did 9-10 minutes for 12-14 minute cook window on the Tinkayada Organic Brown Rice Spirals that I used.)

  5. Adjust salt to your preference and serve!

Note

*See blog post for a note about gluten-free pasta options.

I have yet to find a store-bought chicken (or vegetable) broth that works for a FAILSAFE/RPAH Elimination Diet. I end up making my own when I cook chicken in the instant pot. I always reserve the cooking liquid and freeze for another use.

This recipe is low salicylate, gluten free, nightshade free, dairy free, and FAILSAFE Friendly. It is also safe for the strict elimination phase of the RPAH Elimination Diet.
