How to make gluten-free baked chicken
Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C). Lightly grease a 9"X9"X2" baking pan; set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix gluten-free bread crumbs, Parmesan, oregano, garlic salt, and pepper; set aside.
Coat each piece of chicken with Dijon mustard. (I place the Dijon in a container or a plastic bag with the chicken and shake it until it's coated.)
Dip Dijon-coated chicken in bread crumb mixture until all sides are covered. Place in the pan.
Bake chicken for 25-30 minutes or until done and juice runs clear.
If you are not a fan of oregano, you can leave it out of this gluten-free baked oregano and have gluten-free baked chicken.
Also, if Dijon is too strong for you, you can dip the chicken in whisked egg to help the crumb coating stick.
The oregano and mustard flavors combine to make the chicken tangy and flavorful, and the bread crumb-Parmesan combo will provide the perfect bite.
Plus this chicken is baked, not fried, which makes it healthier than a lot of other gluten-free chicken recipes.
How to I make this gluten-free chicken grain-free
Not everyone can eat grains. To make this gluten-free chicken grain-free simply swap the bread crumbs out and add in the equivalent amount of almond meal/flour.
It won't be as crunchy, but it'll be just as flavorful.
Is Chicken Gluten-Free
Chicken, like all meat, is naturally gluten-free. Sometimes when chicken is processed fillers are injected into the meat. Always check packaging to make sure no gluten ingredients were added during the processing of the chicken.
How long do you bake Chicken?
You can bake small chicken breasts in the oven at 425°F for 20 minutes, until the chicken is heated through to 165°F. For thicker chicken breasts, add more time.
I recommend investing in a meat thermometer to test the internal temperature to see if it's done.

Can't believe how crunchy that coating looks! YUM
What a great way to spruce up boring chicken. Love it!
The crust looks so crunchy, love that it's baked and gluten free!
Kaila (The Wanderlust Celiac)
My mom used to always make baked chicken as a kid, pretty similar to this, and I absolutely loved it! I love the oregano and parmesan in this dish.
Simple is always appealing. We love baked chicken!
I don't eat chicken, but I can definitely use this breading recipe for tofu or jackfruit - yum!
The coating looks so crunch! I love simply prepared dishes.
This will be very popular at my house. The only kind of meat my toddler wants is chicken (preferably with rice and beans!)
My kids love chicken too, and I'm always looking for different ways to keep it interesting. Great recipe, and thanks for including a grain free option too!
Love this adult friendly version of 'chicken fingers'. The combo of parmesan and mustard is weirdly one of my favourites for salmon, so I bet this would be great with chicken.
I love the simplicity and versatility of this recipe Chrystal. Great over grains with steamed veggies now, or over salad when the weather warms up!
Do you have a favorite brand of gluten free bread crumbs you buy? Or do you make your own? I would like to have some on hand if I don't have time to make my own. Can't wait to try this recipe!
I either make my own, or by Aleia's breadcrumbs.
Can you prepare the night before?
This recipe works best prepared when ready to cook. Otherwise the outside gets soggy. It's a simple recipe, and doesn't take too much time. I hope that helps.
What can i use in place of dijon mustard?
You can use regular mustard or 1 egg whipped in place of the Dijon. I hope that helps.

i know somebody just asked this but... what would i use to replace the dijon mustard because i would rather not use mustard in it at all also i can not eat eggs allergy.
You can dip the chicken in buttermilk instead of egg, and leave the mustard out if you want.
