Gluten Free Chicken Parmesan

One of my dinner favorites is chicken parmesan. As much as I love it, I can over do it. I often make it healthy by reducing the cheese and choosing a healthier side dish, like broccoli, but this time I wanted to make this chicken parmesan recipe gluten free.

Originally I wanted to create this gluten free chicken parmesan with a homemade marinara but you know what? I’m tired, I am so darn tired.

Ketogenic chicken parmesan

School just let in and I’m still transitioning to these new routines (I better get used to it, I have many years ahead of me doing this) but my body is feeling it. Running to kindergarten drop off, working, being a wife and mother, it’s exhausting! So you know what? I cheated. I used jarred marinara and I encourage all of you to do it too. It makes this dinner quicker and so much easier and that is what all us moms and busy working people need! Something that’s healthy, easy, and delicious.

Another tip for making life easier while adjusting to the back to school life is the Shopping With Chicken App. I’ve spoken about this app countless times in the past and it’s because it’s so darn convenient! My favorite feature is that I can post a list the syncs with my husband’s app, so if he’s at the store he can check the list and pick up the items for me. It saves me a million little trips and I deeply appreciate it.

  1. Do you know the nutritional information?

    • Hi Caitlin,

      If it’s not at the bottom of the recipe card, it’s not added yet. I’m slowly getting all the recipes updated with it 🙂

  2. Do you have a recipe for the sauce if we want to make it instead of using the jar??

    • Hi Rilynn,

      Every time I make it, it’s a little different but try a large can of tomato sauce (or crushed tomatoes), garlic, basil, etc.
