Feed your Body and Soul: Chicken Parmesan {Wheat Free}
With Barilla® and Feeding America

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Barilla®.  All opinions are genuine and are my own.

 

Here's an easy and delicious supper recipe that everyone will enjoy -- whether they're on a gluten free diet or not.  The Parmesan crusted chicken breasts are crispy and tender.  You won't miss the soggy wheat.  This recipe uses ingredients that are whole; no preservatives, no junk.  


My recipe uses Barilla® sauce, which is gluten-free, kosher, and preservative free.  The ingredients read like a recipe for homemade sauce. 


Here's where this recipe gets even better:  Barilla® has partnered with Feeding America -- the nation's largest organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through their network of food banks.  You can "Taste the Difference and Make a Difference" with your purchase of Barilla® sauce.  For every jar purchased through the end of May 2014, Barilla® will donate $0.05 to Feeding America's National Produce Program with a minimum donation of $150,000.

The fresh and delicious, all-natural taste of Barilla® sauce will make a difference in your meal, while your smart choice as a consumer will make a difference to someone else.   When you buy a jar of Barilla® sauce, Barilla® will donate 1 pound of fresh produce to Fedding America to support those in need, up to 4.2 million pounds!   It's a choice that's food for your body and soul.


Chicken Parmesan (wheat free)

(adapted from America's Test Kitchen "Best Chicken Parmesan")

Yield:  8 servings
Prep Time:  30 minutes
Cook Time:  20 minutes

  • 1 to 2 cups of your favorite Barilla® Sauce
  • 4 (6 to 8 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed, halved horizontally and pounded to 1/2" thick
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 5 ounces whole-milk mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups Parmesan cheese (finely grated)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup torn fresh basil
Step 1:  Sprinkle each side of each chicken cutlet with 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt and let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.  Combine the mozzarella and fontina in a medium bowl and set aside.

Step 2:  Adjust oven rack to 4" from the broiler element; then preheat the broiler.  Whisk the eggs and cornstarch in a shallow dish or pie plate until smooth.  A dinner fork works well to help break down the cornstarch.

Step 3:  In another shallow dish or pie plate, combine Parmesan and spices.  Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Working with 1 cutlet at a time, dredge in egg mixture, allowing excess to drip off.  Coat all sides in the Parmesan mixture; pressing gently so the coating adheres.  Transfer cutlet to a large plate and repeat with remaining cutlets.

Step 4:  Heat oil in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering.  Place 2 cutlets int he skillet and cook without moving them until bottoms are crispy and deep golden brown (1.5 to 2 minutes).  Using tongs, carefully flip cutlets and cook on second side till golden (1.5 to 2 minutes).  Transfer cutlets to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining cutlets.


Step 5:  Remove paper towel from the baking sheet.  Sprinkle the mozzarella evenly over the cutlets.  Broil until chese is melted and beginning to brown (2 to 4 minutes).  While chicken is broiling, warm up the Barilla® Sauce.  


Step 6:  Transfer chicken to a serving platter.  Top each cutlet with 2 Tablespoons of sauce.  Sprinkle with basil and serve immediately.  Serve remaining sauce separately for diners to add as they wish.
