This dairy-free chicken recipe is another one of my family’s favorite chicken recipes. Back in January, I shared my Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Chicken Recipe. I’ve been making a lot of dairy-free chicken recipes lately, so I wanted to share this one too. This recipe takes a lot less time and is perfect for a simple weeknight meal.

Dairy-Free Parmesan Cheese: This recipe uses dairy-free parmesan cheese. There are several brands on the market. Follow Your Heart Dairy-Free Parmesan Cheese is made from palm oil and comes shredded or grated. Violife Just Like Parmesan Wedge is dairy-free and made with grains like rice and potato and from coconut oil. Parma! Vegan Parmesan is made with nuts and seeds. Nooch It! is dairy-free, vegan, and made from cashews (paid Amazon links). Whole Foods and some local grocery stores also sell these brands.
Dairy-Free Butter: My favorite dairy-free butter is Earth Balance. It comes in original and soy-free. I also use Spectrum Organic All Vegetable Shortening as a butter substitute. It is made from palm oil and contains no hydrogenated fats. I get both at my local grocery store.
Gluten-Free Bread Crumbs: Ian’s, (paid Amazon link) Panko and Katz make gluten-free bread crumbs available at Amazon and at most local grocery stores. I use Ian’s because it comes in an Italian style that adds a lot of flavor to my chicken recipes and it’s also a little cheaper than other brands.
Bread crumbs are also easily substituted with ingredients like oats, cornflakes, potato chips, nuts, seeds, shredded coconut, or almond flour. Crush up and blend any of these items using a sealed Ziploc bag or a blender. I personally have not tried any of these substitutions.
Chicken Breasts: Thaw the chicken thoroughly. If the chicken breasts are fairly large, cut them in half before beginning. This will help them cook faster, and more evenly.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lightly coat the baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
Set out 3 medium-size bowls. Melt the butter in 1 bowl. Place the cheese in another bowl and the bread crumbs in another.
Add the spices to the bowl with the bread crumbs and mix.
Dip each chicken breast in the butter, then the bread crumbs, and then the cheese.
Place chicken in the prepared baking pan.
Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes.
My hope is you will come to enjoy cooking, and that my recipes will make your time in the kitchen simple and more fun.
