Units Scale


  • 1 1/2 to 2 lbs skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Seasoned Gluten Free Panko or our gluten free panko recipe (see notes):

  • 3/4 to 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 2 Tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan, finely crushed gluten-free potato chips, or pork rinds (see notes)


  • 2 large eggs



The last ingredient in the seasoned panko (parmesan cheese or potato chips) is not included in the original gluten-free panko recipe, be sure to add it to this recipe.

Alternate Method – AIR FRYER OPTION – Preheat the air fryer to 400F. After preheating, spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray. Place the panko chicken breasts in the preheated air fryer (ensuring they don’t overlap) and cook for 8 minutes. Flip the chicken over and cook for an additional 4 to 6 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165°F. Do not overcook. Rest 5 minutes before slicing.  

One Pan Meal Tip–  This meal can easily be a sheet pan dinner with the addition of vegetables. In a large bowl, combine 2 to 3 cups fresh broccoli or fresh green beans with ½ Tablespoon light olive oil, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt and ⅛ teaspoon black pepper. To bake in the oven, place on a separate sheet pan and bake for the last 15 minutes of cooking time for the chicken.
