  1. You can use chicken breast if you prefer in this recipe.
  2. Gluten free barbecue sauces I love include Stubbs, Bone Sucking Sauce, Sweet Baby Ray's, and Kinders. There are lots of other brands of gluten free barbecue sauce, just make sure to read the labels.
  3. Double-check that the corn tortilla chips you purchase are gluten free.
