Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Chicken Migas Recipe


I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This creation of Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Migas has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for #CollectiveBias and its advertiser.

About two to three weeks ago, I decided to make a huge (for me) diet change. I had cut dairy, but my little B’s face and skin was super rashy and her tummy was obviously hurting her. So, I decided that I needed to cut out gluten as well and give that a try. Ever since, I’ve been doing all gluten-free cooking using gluten-free recipes as well as dairy-free. I won’t say it’s been easy, but I realized that there were some things in my “go-to” meal bucket that were actually already safe to eat!

One of my family’s favorites is migas. My step-mom taught me how to cook these years ago, and they’ve stuck with me. They are super simple, taste delicious and are incredibly easy to modify or change to your family’s liking. I was asked by #CollectiveBias to incorporate Tyson’s Gluten Free Grilled and Ready chicken into a meal and I knew this was the perfect recipe.

I ran to my local Sam’s Club and scooped up the chicken (right on an end cap as they will be demoing the chicken on 3/6/14 and 3/8/14…anybody else love walking around Sam’s and trying all of the new things?).

I also purchased some corn tortillas, eggs and cilantro. However, there are definitely many other ingredients you can add to your migas, depending on your family’s preferences. I was armed and ready to #CookItGF.

You’ll want to cut the corn tortillas up into 1” squares (approximately) and heat your pan. Add 1-2T olive oil or coconut oil to the pan and once hot, throw in the tortillas. Let them sit in the pan without stirring until they start to crisp, then give them a little stir. Cook them until they are all slightly crispy/fried.

While they are cooking, break open 10 eggs into a separate bowl and whisk (you can also use 15 egg whites or an egg substitute equivalent). Season them with a little salt and pepper. When you are satisfied with the crispiness of your tortillas, pour the eggs over them and allow them to cook. When the eggs have started to cook through, give everything a stir (just like you are scrambling eggs).

While the eggs are cooking, dice up your grilled chicken, or cut it into strips.

Once the eggs are cooked (I prefer mine cooked very well, but again, it’s up to your family), either put the diced chicken into the pan, or dish out the migas and top with chicken strips.

To finish it off, top with cilantro. Pro tip: I like to add salsa or hot sauce to mine before digging in, but my kids aren’t fans, so, they go plain. You can also top with onions, dairy-free cheese and/or sour cream. And enjoy! It makes a great breakfast or even breakfast for dinner. It also reheats very well.  Since going gluten-free, I’ve found that my breakfasts require more prep time (which I often don’t have). So, I’m making big batches of meals that I can scoop out a serving of and heat up every day.

    1. I’m realizing now just how many things have gluten in them that I never would have thought about (like frozen chicken)…and soy sauce. You would think it only has soy in it!!

  3. I’ve never had this before. I’m trying to be gluten-free sine I have an intolerance. I’ll have to try it.

    1. If you try it, let me know what you think. It’s pretty easy and super yummy..and if you can eat cheese, add some cheese and let it melt over the top. Soooo good!

  10. Julie Ghrist says:

    This sounds so delicious… we are not gluten free but my daughter has a dairy allergy so I am always looking for dairy free recipes!

    1. It’s so hard. With every kiddo, I’ve cut dairy (I don’t have a lot as it it), and I always forget just how many things it’s in.

      1. Julie Ghrist says:

        It is in tons… and I have to bring food with everywhere we go b/c other people tend to not have anything she can eat. It has been a hard adjustment for me with my cooking. I have never had to think about it before. I never thought I would have a child with food allergies. No one in my family has food allergies. I am adjusting and learning tho. It is a lot more accommodated than it has ever been tho so that helps!

  11. Jennifer Marie says:

    Yum, that looks really good. Sometimes when I think gluten free I think “blah” but you showed that this doesn’t have to be the case!

    1. Thanks! I think it also helps that you can jazz it up with so many yummy things!

    1. My daughter has responded very well to me being gluten free. Of course, it would be a lot easier if we did it as a household, but it’s okay that it’s just me now.

  12. FoundProdigal (Nicolle) says:

    Thanks for the recipe. I’m always looking for new gf/df as well as soy free and a few other things free…lol. Maybe you already know this but paleo is a pretty big thing right now and paleo is typically all gluten and dairy free so you can likely find some great ideas by searching for paleo or paleo-friendly. is one of many good sites to check out. Good luck with the changes and hope that you find a resolution that works for you and your daughter. 🙂

  13. Wow! This looks GREAT! It’s really awesome that Tyson is offering a Gluten Free version of their chicken! It can be very difficult to make such a change to your diet, and it helps when you have options like this!! #client
