Join Jessica Simon, seasoned host of church community groups and Sunday night summer dinners, as she shares mouthwatering summer menu ideas. We delve into tips for deboning chicken, using gluten free flour, and ways to best prepare for your guests. Jessica encourages us to jump into hospitality doing it so often we don't have time to be scared of it. Ever have guests show up and you're still in slippers? She has a tip for that too! After recommending frequently used kitchen items, we tell stories. This episode is a lot of fun, and you don't want to miss it! We're so glad you're here! 

Avocado Chicken Salad

By Jessica Simon - This salad is gluten free and easy to make dairy free.



1 rotisserie chicken

Cilantro to taste*

Juice from 2 limes

1 onion (whatever kind you like)

Salt and pepper to taste

4 avocados

Feta cheese to taste (I like a lot!)*

 *Leave these out depending on your/your guests' preferences.



1. Pull chicken off of the bone and chop.  Chop onion.  Combine everything except the feta cheese.  Once all combined, mix in feta cheese.

2. Serve on your choice of bread- I make sourdough and a gluten free option. 



1) If you buy a few days ahead of time and need to ripen your avocados, put them in a brown paper bag with a couple of bananas.  Roll the top of the bag down and let them sit together in the bag until you're ready to make the chicken salad. 

2) Leave the avocado pits in the salad and cover the salad with Saran Wrap/ Glad Press 'N Seal Food Wrap - I use the Press 'N Seal to flatten down the salad, then have the Press 'N Seal go up the sides of the bowl and put a lid on top of the bowl (one of those nifty bowls with lids that my daughter got me for Christmas).

Serve with:


Chips and salsa

From Jessica - "I start with this recipe, with one adjustment- instead of 260 g rice flour, 80 g tapioca starch, 60 g sorghum flour, 4.5 g xanthan gum, I just do 404.5 g King Arthur GF Measure for Measure 1:1 flour.  She claims this bread is so soft you can bend it.  Perhaps that's true if you do the recipe as is, but it's not true the way I do it.  It's still tasty though and my son gets so excited when he finds out I've made him some bread." 

"One substitution- we are going to use gluten free Oreos instead of the Tate's because of my son's wheat allergy this week when we make it.  In the past I've made it with regular (not chewy) chips ahoy.  Ina might be mortified, I don't know, but it's been a big hit every time I've made it.  So here's a funny story, my kids love to play this board game called "Beat the Parents" and in the beginning of the game, each side makes a wager.  My husband and I are undefeated and this last time we played, because I had just told you about this recipe and then I wanted some, our wager was that if the kids lost, they had to make us this cake.  So guess what we will be enjoying tomorrow after dinner, and I don't even have to make it, haha." 

Another favorite dinner to serve!

(Can leave out the red chile paste if you desire a less spicy dish. Almond butter can be substituted for peanut butter if avoiding a peanut allergy.)
