Gluten Free Chicken Parmigiana

Expand your gluten free dinner menu with this delicious Gluten Free Chicken Parmigiana recipe. For the bread crumb coating, we prefer to start with plain GF breadcrumbs and enhance with our favourite flavours. And using a very simple, classic Italian-American tomato sauce that has a bright and tomato-y flavour that cuts through the richness of the chicken and pasta makes this a must have.

Use your favourite gluten free bread crumbs and classic spaghetti sauce, and soon you’ll be wishing you’d have tried this easy dinner recipe sooner.

    Turned out better than expected. Instead of bread crumbs I used pörq Italian herb panko crumbs. I also used the air fryer instead of deep frying.
