Gluten-free Chicken Goujons & Tzatziki Dip

I’m excited to share with you all the new recipes I have created with Mellow Yellow and their healthy, cold-pressed rapeseed oil! Mellow Yellow is a good, neutral fat that is perfect for cooking, baking, frying and roasting. It is the lowest in saturated fat of all other cooking oils, (half that of olive oil), it is rich in vitamin E, a natural antioxidant, omega 3, omega 6, and is cold-pressed ensuring that the natural goodness and character of the oil is preserved.

First up, gluten-free CHICKEN GOUJONS! Ditch those fatty bargain buckets and curb those nugget craving with a healthy alternative. These goujons are delicious, (if I do say so myself), and are a perfect summer-time snack or part of a main meal – they must be tried!

I’ve just spent a week on the beautiful Greek island Kefalonia where I got to taste delicious greek cuisine. The tzatziki is a popular traditional greek dip and compliments these tasty gluten-free chicken goujons well.
