Recipe Roundup: Gluten-Free Weeknight Dinners

Just because you give up gluten doesn’t mean you have to give up all your favorite foods in the process. In our new book Weeknight Gluten-Free, author Kristine Kidd shows how a few creative spins can turn classic wheat-based dishes into great-tasting gluten-free fare (think crushed tortilla chips coating crispy “fried” chicken). Here, we’ve rounded up some of the best quick, simple dishes from the book to please everyone at the table.
