Easy Gluten-Free Chicken Parmesan

A classic recipe modified with gluten-free flour and bread crumbs and using a jar of Kirkland Tuscany Marinara sauce made an easy gluten-free chicken parmesan “linner.”  Using an aluminum foil baking dish made clean up easy too!

One of my favs, Natasha’s Kitchen has a video and recipe for Classic Chicken Parmesan with a homemade marinara sauce. We subbed with Costco’s marinara and it tasted really good.

We whipped this up for our linner (late lunch, early dinner) and it was a success.  Then John got gluten free meals for two additional days.  Win win.

Gluten Free Ingredients

For the ½ cup of flour this recipe calls for, I used an all-purpose gluten-free flour we got at Walmart.  As a note, I keep my baking supplies in the freezer.  They keep fresh longer and those pesky expiration dates aren’t a problem.

4C Gluten-Free Plain Bread Crumbs are what I had on hand for the ½ cup of Italian bread crumbs in the recipe.  I added a nice sprinkling of oregano to that.

Barilla gluten-free pasta is a staple at our house and always in the pantry.

Our chicken breasts were not as large as the ones on Natasha’s video, so we halved the recipe but used the full amount of marinara.  And mozzarella.  😉


My “retirement” fitness routine continues to evolve and refine itself.  It’s nice to have the flexibility to take advantage of weather and opportunities for more spontaneous exercise.

Solidly, I am attending three weight classes a week.  With a warmer Saturday, I returned to Marie’s water class and caught up with my water buddies.  I absolutely love Saturdays at the Persimmon pool.  I cannot even explain the way it makes me feel.

Sunday I went for a four-mile run, a mile walking cool down and then we rode our ebikes for an hour.  Today I’m ready for a little ibuprofen.  But the weather was so perfect, it’s hard not to overdo on those days.

I’m still babying my shoulder but maybe need to concentrate a bit more on abs.  Hmmmm.

Spring Table

One of my fav YT channels is A Charming Abode and this week Leslie did two Easter tablescapes – one from Target and one from Home Goods.  She really inspired me to put something similar together and I’ll show you what I come up with next post.

I don’t have anywhere near her talent, but I think I might be able to pull something together.  Since I love bunnies so much this year.

Wrap Up

Sending prayers and blessings your way this week.  As we enter the Easter and Passover seasons, I feel the renewal of Spring and always look for the Hand of God in each day.  Praying for your miracle now.  Happy week!
