Did you know that a chicken parmesan recipe is not commonly made or consumed in Italy? That’s right, chicken parmesan is actually an Italian-American dish.

In Italy, they stick with vegetarian-friendly eggplant parmesan, also known as eggplant parmigiana, but when Italian immigrants came to the United States, meat was much cheaper compared to the prices in Europe; that’s when chicken and veal became the new stars of this well-known classic. (1)

What about this recipe? This baked chicken parmesan recipe has all the flavor you love — without any of the gluten!

A Gluten-Free Chicken Parmesan Recipe

Are you ready for the best chicken parmesan recipe minus the gluten? Chicken parmesan recipes are usually pretty similar and contain the same key ingredients: chicken, bread crumbs, tomato sauce and cheese. (2)

So just like any great chicken parmesan recipe, this one has a breaded chicken breast topped with tomato sauce and melted mozzarella cheese.

However, with this recipe, instead of wheat flour and bread crumbs, you’re going to use cassava root flour and some crushed up gluten-free crackers combined with sheep’s milk Pecorino Romano and spices to coat the chicken breasts. Don’t worry, it’s going to taste just as delicious as usual!

While chicken parmesan is typically served with pasta, I recommend trying this chicken parmesan recipe with naturally gluten-free zucchini noodles, or another gluten-free noodle you enjoy.

How to Make This Chicken Parmesan Recipe

You love ordering it when you’re out at an Italian restaurant, so why not try making this recipe for chicken parmesan in your own kitchen? As with most easy chicken parmesan recipes, this one only takes a little bit over an hour, and that includes cooking time.

First, you’ll coat the chicken breasts in the cassava root flour, followed by the egg wash and finally, the “bread crumb” and cheese mixture. Then you’ll briefly cook the breasts on the stove top before putting them into the oven with the tomato sauce and cheese.

After some baking time, everything will meld together beautifully, and you can put your chicken and sauce on top of gluten-free noodles. Is your mouth watering yet?

To get started with this parmesan chicken recipe, have your oven preheating to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, in an oven-safe pan over medium heat, warm up the avocado oil.
