Years ago, our church published a monthly newsletter that contained recipes that were contributed by the ladies/members of the church. It was always fun receiving the newsletter and seeing what the next featured recipe would be. Oftentimes I would cut-out a recipe and save it in my recipe box. That’s where this recipe came from. I wish I could give credit to whomever contributed this recipe, but alas… I didn’t clip, or write down her name.
The original recipe is not gluten free, however, I have adapted a version to be so.
This recipe begins with chicken breast that is dredged and coated with a delicious mixture of sour cream and your favorite Italian seasoning. (*GF version – Daisy sour cream is gluten free and Badia Italian Seasoning is certified to be gluten free, Kosher and contains no MSG – plus it has several 5-star reviews.
The original recipe then calls for a topping of crushed Corn Flake cereal.
*To make the topping gluten free, I replaced the Corn Flakes with gluten free Rice Chex Cereal. I also added an additional touch of fresh parsley, basil and cilantro to the dry cereal crumbs.
Generously sprinkle the cereal mixture on top of the chicken, drizzle with melted butter and place it in a preheated 350 degree F oven.
As the chicken begins to bake, the intoxicating aroma of warm Italian seasonings will begin to fill your home. If you are like me, you will be standing close by with a knife and fork, anxiously waiting for the chicken to be ready.
This Snappy Italian Chicken Bake is a great dish to serve to your family, or your dinner guest. Add a side salad, a baked potato and bread for a complete meal. If you feel like adding a decadent dessert, consider adding a Caramel Pecan Chocolate Cheesecake, or Chocolate Caramel Cookies. Maybe you’ll like a Frozen Butter Pecan Pumpkin Pie or a GF Pumpkin Swirl Coffee Cake!
Whatever you decide to serve alongside this scrumptious Snappy Italian Chicken Bake, you’re taste-buds will certainly be delighted.
