  • 4 boneless chicken breasts skin removed
  • 1 cup pasta sauce
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups FitJoy Grain-Free Pretzels
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt more if you prefer foods a little saltier
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil


  • Add the FitJoy Pretzels to a food processor and pulse until they are crumbs. Pour them into a bowl.
  • Add the crumbs, parmesan, and seasoning into a bowl and mix.
  • Break the egg into a bowl and whisk.
  • Take the chicken and dip each piece of chicken into egg, flip to coat both sides.
  • Put the chicken into the crumbs. Press the chicken in so the crumb mixture sticks to each part of the chicken.
  • Place chicken in a baking dish and bake at 350º F. Bake chicken for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken and top each cutlet with marinara and mozzarella. Bake an additional 8-10 minutes until the cheese melts.


You can use any gluten free or grain-free pretzel to make the coating for this chicken.
