FitJoy Gives Back
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you KNOW I always support those brands that give back to their communities. FitJoy believes in making sure children are not going hungry. They have donated over 1.5 million bars to charities. This is an incredible way to give back!
Don’t forget to check out their delicious grain-free, gluten-free protein bars too…these are perfect for a school lunchbox or afternoon protein pick me up!!
Now you can have grain-free breadcrumbs !! Just use FitJoy Pretzels to make your breadcrumbs!! I used FitJoy pretzels instead of bread crumbs for these gluten free chicken cutlets.
These chicken cutlets were the perfect base for my gluten free chicken parmesan recipe, but you can also serve these gluten free chicken cutlets smothered in gravy with mashed potatoes, in a chicken sandwich, or eat them plain!
To make these grain-free breadcrumbs, just put your FitJoy Pretzels into a food processor and blend. I like a “chunkier” texture with both small and large chunks of pretzel…it adds to the crunchiness of the coating!
Are you ready to make these Gluten Free Chicken Parmesan?
Add your breadcrumbs, parmesan, basil, garlic powder, and salt to a bowl. Mix it all together.
Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.
Add mixed eggs to a bowl and add the breadcrumb mixture to another bowl. Dip the chicken into the egg, then dip into the breadcrumbs. Move the chicken to a baking dish. Repeat until all of the chicken is coated.
(*Tip, slice your chicken breasts lengthwise in half to make a thin chicken cutlet. This will make your chicken thin and crispier on the outside.)
Bake for 20 minutes until mostly done.
Top with marinara sauce. You can make this homemade marinara sauce, or jarred marinara sauce.
Add mozzarella cheese and return to the oven until the cheese is melted…about 8-10 more minutes. Serve with gluten free pasta!!
Sprinkle with fresh basil and dig in!! Your whole family is going to love this easy chicken parmesan!
