Gluten-Free Chicken Parmesan


Chicken Parm Pinterest

My kids love this chicken parmesan. They have always called it “pizza chicken”. When my younger son started on a gluten-free diet, this is the first recipe I set out to adapt to gluten-free. You can fry the chicken on the stove top, but we prefer it cooked in the oven. I have it shown here two ways. The first is with gluten-free macaroni. In the second photo I have it shown served with spaghetti squash. If you are strictly paleo, omit the cheese. It will still be delicious!
