Easy and Delicious Ranch-Parmesan Chicken (gluten-free) | The Baking Beauties

This Easy and Delicious Ranch Parmesan Chicken was simple to put together, and even good enough to make when company comes over. :) By using gluten-free bread crumbs, this is a dish that Celiacs can enjoy as well. Top this with some spaghetti sauce & a slice of mozzarella cheese during the last few minutes of baking, and you’ll have a wonderful, flavourful gluten-free Chicken Parmesan.

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup dry gluten-free breadcrumbs (or finely crushed Chex or Rice Krispies cereal)
  • 1/4-1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup gluten-free ranch salad dressing

  2. Set oven to 400° degrees (set oven rack to lowest position).
  3. Lightly grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  4. In a shallow bowl mix together the dry breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt, black pepper and garlic powder.
  5. Remove chicken from marinade, allowing any excess to drip off.
  6. Coat in the breadcrumb mixture.
  7. Place in a single layer onto a greased baking sheet or line with non-stick foil (do NOT bake in a smaller baking dish or the bottom of the chicken will be soggy).
  8. If desired you can sprinkle black pepper over the chicken pieces.
  9. Bake uncovered for about 30-35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked).

    Yummy–do you make your own gf breadcrumbs? I bought some at Whole foods awhile ago and they were so expensive!

    I make my own crumbs, Sophie. I wish there was a Whole Foods around here, sounds like they have a lot of gf products available.
    Whenever a loaf gets a little too old, or flops, or seems too fragile, I throw it in the food processor and make some crumbs. I store those in the freezer in a Ziplock bag until I need them. HTH!

    Well in addition to finding a fabulous looking recipe to try I have also learned something at your blog – I didn’t realize that’s all you have to do to make breadcrumbs!

    Thank you. :)

    Yep, it really is that simple, Elizabeth! A great way to use up that loaf of bread that flopped or got dried out. :) And this recipe ROCKS!! I can’t wait to make it again.

    This chicken recipe was super moist and really yummy, oh, and very easy! I used our leftover cornbread muffins for the gf bread crumbs.
