The best gluten-free chicken parmigiana is truly this one! You won’t want to miss this authentic Italian dinner that will have everyone asking for more.
When it comes to one tasty dinner, this is the best gluten-free chicken parmigiana you will ever make.
The best part is that nobody will ever know it is gluten-free because the crust is so authentic and delicious. With a little bit of crunch and lots of yummy breading, everyone will be coming back for more! My husband is the most incredible cook. He has made lots of recipes that have been featured here including his 15-minute dinner hash or as we like to call it, Jash. His easy bruschetta chicken is also another easy dinner that is a huge hit. So it really shouldn’t have come as any surprise to me that he knocked it out of the park with the best gluten-free chicken parmigiana too.
When my hubby makes a meal, he doesn’t cut corners. The breading alone on this chicken parm shows exactly how much he thinks about his dishes. With a perfect combination of homemade gluten-free bread crumbs and flour, he makes a crust that has just the right amount of crunch and breading.
