Gluten Free Ginger Garlic Coriander Marinade for Chicken or Tofu

Chicken is naturally gluten free, and easy to make, but it can get boring. I love spicing things up with flavorful gluten free marinades like this one made with lots of ginger, garlic and coriander. You can use this marinade for baked tofu too! 
They’re starting to put out all the back to school things at Walmart, and by some miracle we’ve actually reached a transition point in our homeschool studies that aligns with the public school so we’re waiting on new supplies and curricula. The neighborhood kids have started football practice. Even though it’s still really the middle of the summer, it’s starting to feel like fall. And with fall comes a more sensible approach to eating. (Anyone else have a “new school year resolution” to revamp their diet?)
We’ve been eating more salads and low carb entrees, especially chicken and fish. This is one of my favorite marinades for chicken or baked tofu. (It might be good on meatier fish like cod too! If you try it, let me know!)

  1. Hi Jodie,
    Thanks for sharing this marinade. Afterwards, how do you cook the chicken? Thank you.

    • Hi Irene!
      I usually just throw it in the oven at 350F until it’s done. I’ve also grilled it or pan fried it. No real trick, just easy weeknight type cooking.
