What’s For Dinner? Deconstructed Chicken Parmesan!

Chicken Parmesan is one of my favorite meals. In fact, I posted a gluten-free recipe for it just six months ago. The only drawback is that it can be a bit of work, especially if you’re not familiar with the process. Luckily, I was recently inspired by a deconstructed video version posted by Blogger Chef John. I’ve reproduced a gluten-free version of the recipe below.

Why We Love It

There is nothing more comforting than gooey, cheesy chicken, and this recipe makes it easier than ever.


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • Chopped fresh herbs (such as basil, parsley, or rosemary) to taste
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese, grated
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Approximately 10-12 gluten-free bagel chips, or ½ cup gluten-free croutons


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spread olive oil in the bottom of a small pan. (See Tips below.)
  3. Sprinkle minced garlic over the olive oil.
  4. Place chicken breasts on top.
  5. Pour tomato sauce over the breasts.
  6. Sprinkle fresh herbs on top of sauce.
  7. Sprinkle half of mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses on top of herbs.
  8. Place croutons over top. (Try to cover the entire surface. This is why a small pan works best!)
  9. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  10. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees.
