Bake 400 F

Prep time 30 min

Bake time 40 min

Serves 6-8

Equipment: 9 x 13 baking pan


  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs (4-5 pieces)
  • ½ cup low-FODMAP, gluten-free flour (any variety works well that I’ve tried)
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum, if this is not included in your flour choice
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 to 3 cups low-FODMAP gluten-free bread crumbs – see recipe, or use store-bought (I personally don’t tolerate the additives in commercial panko crumbs that I have tried, so I make my own!)
  • 1-2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 TB olive oil, for frying
  • 3 cups Rachels’ best low-FODMAP spaghetti/ marinara sauce
    • about 3/4 recipe
  • 2 TB finely grated Parmesan, preferably Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 2 cups fresh mozzarella, grated or torn into bite-sized pieces

Directions for low-FODMAP chicken parmesan:

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees
  • Place chicken cutlets between two pieces of parchment or plastic wrap
  • Using a kitchen mallet or rolling pin, pound meat to even 1/4-inch-thick slices (this step is important)
  • Place each of:
    • flour plus xanthan gum (if not included in your flour)
    • eggs and
    • low-FODMAP bread crumbs separately into three wide, shallow bowls
  • Season chicken pieces generously with salt and pepper
  • Dip a piece in flour, then eggs, then coat with low-FODMAP bread crumbs
  • Repeat until all the pieces are coated
  • Fill a large skillet with 1/2-inch oil and place over medium-high heat
  • When oil is hot, fry chicken in batches, turning halfway through, until golden brown

  • Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate
  • Spoon a thin layer of sauce on the pan and lay the cutlets on this

  • Top with remaining mozzarella
  • Place Parmesan over the top
  • Transfer pan to oven and bake until cheese is golden and casserole is bubbling, about 40 minutes
  • Let cool a few minutes before serving
  • Serve with salad, low-FODMAP roasted or baked potatoes, low-FODMAP vegetables, or low-FODMAP gluten-free pasta of your choice

It’s the ultimate low-FODMAP Chicken Parmesan!
