This Gluten-Free Baked Chicken Parmesan is a healthier and easier version of the classic Italian chicken parmesan dish. In this recipe, the chicken is first marinated, then coated in parmesan cheese and baked. To finish this Italian dish, I topped the chicken with fresh tomato slices, fresh basil and bocconcini cheese, and finished it in the oven until the cheese is bubbling.

So there is no deep-frying and unwanted fats in this chicken parmesan dish. Also, this baked chicken parmesan is a lot less work and a lot less mess. Making it a favourite chicken dish at our house.
