Gluten Free Chicken Parmesan
As a family, we have really tried to convert most of our food to gluten free options. My husband and I feel so much better eating this way- and I don’t want to cook two dinners! 😉 The kids don’t know the difference, and there are so many great recipes out there now that you won’t even miss that stinkin gluten!
2 Tbsp Pine Nuts 1 Tbsp Cormeal
1/2 tsp onion powder 1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp oregano leaves 1/2 tsp thyme leaves
1/4 tsp sea salt 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp grated parmigiano cheese
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 large egg (you can also use just the egg white)
5- 4 oz chicken breasts
1: Preheat oven to 425 F
2: Place pine nuts and corn meal in food processor and pulse until finely ground. IF you do not have a food processor you can also put the pine nuts in a ziploc and hammer then down. Thats what I do in a huge ziploc then just add all the other ingredients in and shake til blended.
3: Combine Pine nuts, cornmeal, all spices, flour and cheese in a bowl.
4:Combine buttermilk and egg in a bowl and blend.
5: Dip each chicken breast into the buttermilk mixture, dredge in pine nut mixture.
6: Heat oil in large, ovenproof skillet over medium heat until fragrant.
7: Add chicken breasts, cook for 3-4 min. Turn Chicken.
8: Transfer to a glass dish- scooping any crust from pan and adding on top of chicken in dish. Place dish in the oven; bake for 10-12 min, or until thermometer inserted into the thickest part of each breast reads 165.
Turn Oven OFF- then Add a few spoonfuls of your favorite spaghetti sauce to the top of the chicken, and some mozzarella cheese then add back to the oven for just a few minutes to melt the cheese.
