ITALIAN CHICKEN - GLUTEN FREE

ITALIAN CHICKEN - GLUTEN FREE

Recipe From:  Goodies Gone Gluten Free


4-5 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 medium bag fresh spinach leaves

1 medium tomato sliced in 4-5 slices

4-5 slices of mozzarella or jack cheese

Parmesan cheese

2 eggs, beaten

Gluten Free Panko style bread crumbs, approximately 1 cup

Olive Oil for frying


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Empty bag of spinach into a 13x9 inch baking dish.  It will look like a lot of spinach, but it will cook down considerably.  Pour olive oil approximately a quarter of the way up in a skillet and heat on medium heat.  In the meantime, dip chicken in egg and then bread crumbs (if your gluten free panko crumbs are not seasoned you can season with a 1/4 tsp of Italian herbs and 1/4 tsp. of seasoning salt or salt of choice).  Once oil is hot enough that a few crumbs dropped in the hot oil sizzle, place chicken in skillet and brown on both sides, a couple at a time.  Place browned chicken on top of spinach and top each breast with a slice of tomato, a sprinkle of Parmesan and a piece of sliced cheese.


Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned and the chicken is no longer pink in the middle.


Serves 4-5 people
