Gluten/dairy-free Parmesan Chicken

Gotta admit – pretty damned proud of myself, as tonight I made yummy gluten-free parmesan chicken for the family (only difference being we swapped in real shredded cheese for the rest of us after I took Benjo’s piece out of the oven.) It was delicious – everyone (esp. Ben) ate every single bite and I realized (yet again) that it’s really not that hard to adapt normal recipes to be gluten and dairy-free.

Credit to this recipe, which is what I adapted to make it full-blown Parmesan (and gluten/dairy free)…


  • 2-6 frozen chicken breasts (1 per person)
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free pasta sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Italian seasoning & parsley flakes
  • gluten-free corn flake crumbs
  • shredded Daiya “cheese”


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Mix pasta sauce, brown sugar, honey, Italian seasoning & parsley flakes together.
  3. Place frozen chicken breasts in dish.
  4. Sprinkle a light coating of gluten-free corn flake crumbs on top of chicken breasts.
  5. Cover chicken breasts with sauce.
  6. Cover entire dish with solid covering of corn flake crumbs again – not entirely covered, but more than a light sprinkling.
  7. Bake for 60 minutes (or longer, depending on how well cooked chicken is – it should be moist, but not pink, obviously.)
  8. Sprinkle Daiya cheese over chicken the final 2-3 minutes of cook time. This gives it time to melt and brown if you like it that way.
  9. Serve (to happy, famished family)
  10. Bask in the glory of a yummy meal served!
