Enjoy crispy, oven baked Gluten Free Parmesan Chicken that tastes even better than the original! This easy parmesan crusted chicken recipe comes together in less than 30 minutes using affordable and simple ingredients!
Over medium heat in a medium saucepan, heat oil. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds.
1 tablespoon olive oil, 2 cloves garlic
Remove pan from burner to avoid splatter. Add crushed tomatoes and remaining marinara seasonings. Bring pan back to the burner, bring to a boil, then simmer. Cook, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes, or until reduced and slightly thickened.
Preheat oven to 425°F. On a baking sheet spread ½ tablespoon olive oil to grease pan. Set aside.
In a medium bowl mix together, gluten free breadcrumbs, grated parmesan, cornstarch, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Mix together breading with a fork.
½ cup gluten free breadcrumbs, ½ cup grated Parmesan, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, ¾ teaspoon garlic powder, ¾ teaspoon Italian seasoning, ¼ teaspoon salt, ⅛ teaspoon pepper
Drizzle remaining 1 ½ tablespoons olive over chicken breast cutlets and toss to evenly coat chicken with oil. Place a chicken cutlet, one at a time, in the breading mixture. Press down slightly and use the fork to flip over and coat other side. Transfer breaded chicken to greased baking sheet and repeat with remaining chicken.
Bake for 10 minutes, flip chicken, and then continue cooking for 5-10 minutes more, or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Remove from oven, move oven rack to upper position, and preheat broiler.
Move baked chicken together so it is all in the middle of the pan. Sprinkle grated cheese over top.
1 ½ cups freshly grated mozzarella
Broil for 2 minutes, or until cheese is melted and starts to brown. Top with sauce and serve with cooked gluten free pasta.

How to Make Chicken Cutlets
First make a deep slit in the middle of the breast, lengthwise.
Cut all the way across until you almost reach other side, so it will open like a book.
Cut down the middle of the crease. You end up with two, thinner thickness halves.
To make sure the chicken breasts cook evenly they should be even thickness throughout. At this point use a meat tenderizer to pound the chicken into even thickness. If you don't have a meat tenderizer mallet, gently pounding with a rolling pin will also work.
Air Fryer Baking Directions
Preheat air fryer to 390ºF. Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. To avoid overcrowding the chicken and keeping the breading crispy, you may have to work in batches.
Place breaded chicken in prepared basket and cook for 5 minutes. Flip chicken over and bake for an additional 4-7 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken.
Remove and keep warm while the remaining chicken is cooked.
