Gluten-Free Chicken Fettuccine

Ahh...the days of spaghetti with meatballs and chicken fettuccine is only an euphoric memory since the prescription of my gluten-free diet.

But I refuse to just sit and reminisce of my once glory gluten days. The other day I purchased gluten-free fettuccine by DeBoles and set out the ingredients to recreate one of my most beloved recipes I formerly enjoyed.

Now you know cooking gluten-free pasta is not the same as regular pasta. It's a skill; a skill I taught myself after mishaps of cooking too long (mushy noddles) or not long enough (twig-like noodles). But with a careful eye on the clock (obey the 6 minute rule), and occasion tender stirring, my pasta comes out perfect.

With a handful of fresh ingredients, you too can create a meal in less than ten minutes. Grab a bottle of wine, toss crisp mixed greens for a side salad, and you will have a meal that will replace your memorable experiences of pasta dishes.


8-oz package of DeBoles Gluten Free Rice Fettuccine (or any other desired pasta)

1 TBS oil, or more for the liking

1 cup sliced white button mushrooms

1 medium tomato, sliced into eighths

1 medium zucchini

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 TBS crushed oregano

4 (3-0z) cooked skinless chicken breast, sliced into chunks


  1. Begin boiling water for pasta; make pasta according to directions.

  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.

  3. Saute mushrooms for about 1 minute.

  4. Add tomatoes and zucchini, and stir for about 3 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

  5. Add garlic, oregano, and the chicken and mix until chicken is heated through.

  6. Remove lower the heat to low.

  7. Make pasta according to directions.

  8. Remove skillet from heat.

  9. Rinse the pasta with cold water then immediately add pasta to the skillet and mix with chicken and vegetables until fully mixed.

  10. Add more oil if the pasta is too sticky. Heck, add more oil anyway.

  11. Serve immediately; gluten-free pasta hates the cold.
