Delicious Gluten-Free Chicken Parmesan

Gluten-Free Chicken Parmesan–Satisfying Cravings in 2022

Hello, friends! Happy New Year!

Do you ever find yourself craving something so bad that everything else just tastes “eh” until you get it? I feel like that is how I felt these last two weeks. Now, everything I’ve made has been tasty these last few weeks, but today’s review just really hit the spot.

We’re talking about a Grain-Free Chicken Parmesan that is loaded with flavor and that comforting goodness!

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it’s grain-free and really spotlights a lighter side for this meal.

Directions, Directions, Directions–FOLLOW THEM!

One of the most important parts of recipes when I review them is to have a recipe that, when followed, turns out exactly like pictured, or at least extremely close. This recipe for chicken parmesan is not insanely difficult. Frankly, I think it’s a classic to have on your mental menu arsenal. However, there are some tips and tricks included in the directions that ensure that your end result looks picture perfect .

A few things that have really stood out to me lately–tenderizing chicken. In this recipe? Phew, it’s a must. Plus, it’s a little extra stress relief while prepping dinner ;). Pound the chicken pieces until they are visibly thinner. This makes the breast more tender as well as easier to coat with the egg and flour mixture. More crunch, right?

Speaking of the egg and flour–my friendly tip is to keep both the egg and flour in dishes with large enough surfaces so you can properly coat each side of the chicken pieces while using the wet-hand, dry-hand method. My surface for these wasn’t super ideal, so my dry hand got a little wet.

But…practice makes perfect!

Keeping Chicken Parmesan Gluten-Free

Obviously, this recipe is enjoyed extra because it is made specifically gluten-free using Bob’s Red Mill one to one all purpose flour. Seriously, I cannot recommend this flour enough. To be honest, I stocked up on it at Whole Foods recently because they were having a sale!

Teri of No Crumb’s Left does recommend this brand, so I knew I was picking the good stuff. It is truly the closest substitute to gluten-containing flour that I have worked with. Sometimes it’s just a pain to be combining different types of flours to make your mix. If you’re off by a little bit, then your texture is not going to be good in your cooks and bakes. Using a one-to-one mix is going to be your best friend in gluten-free cooking. Truly.

Once you actually pan-fry the chicken pieces and get them nice and crispy, I promise you that no one will be able to blatantly say “Oh my god–that’s gluten-free!”. It’s just straight-up delicious!

What To Serve With This?

I think we’ve seen chicken parmesan “traditionally” served with pasta, but I have to say that serving it with a light spring mix salad is perfect. Feels a little less guilty, doesn’t? You already pan-fried the chicken, so keep your accompanying side lighter. Trust me, you’ll feel so much better. As for the dressing? You can keep it plain and use the tomato sauce as “dressing” or make your own. I used a very simple blend of olive oil, salt, pepper, and a little bit of lemon for acidity.

If you’re making this to be just like the picture, then go ahead and follow along.

Grey’s Grade: 5/5

This recipe for chicken parmesan is so incredibly simple and very tasty. It absolutely satisfied my craving and it was made during the week. I mean, how excellent is that? Two chicken breasts split in half very comfortably fed two people, so it will absolutely be made in our house again!

I would also like to highlight Teri as the author of this recipe too. No Crumb’s Left has very quickly become one of my favorite bloggers because the majority of their recipes are made gluten-free. Not only are the recipes gluten-free, which require extremely minimal modification by me, but the directions are spot on. I don’t find myself re-reading lines to make sure I did something right, or to explain why something doesn’t look correct.

Two out of two recipes so far and I feel completely satisfied with the end result.

As my first review of 2022–I absolutely, wholeheartedly recommend this recipe to anyone seeking a little taste of comfort.
