Super easy chicken parmesan. My kids call it “pizza chicken” and love it. The chicken is flavourful, gluten free and takes about 20 minutes to come together.

I serve it with anything! Broccoli or green  salad works well. A Caesar salad would be good, as well as rice or potatoes.

You will only need about 3/4 of the can of diced tomatoes for this recipe. So just  freeze the rest for a soup or chili.


  • 4-5 chicken cutlets
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • one 14 oz can Italian diced tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • fresh basil leaves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all spices and salt and pepper.  Heat an oven safe pan like a cast iron to medium heat. Coat with olive oil.

Season each side of chicken generously with spice mixture. Sear chicken in pan a few minutes each side until golden.

Spoon a few tablespoons of tomatoes onto each piece of chicken. Top with parmesan cheese and bake for ten minutes. I like to reserve a little cheese from the 1/2 cup to plate with. After ten minutes your house will smell amazing. Top with fresh basil and enjoy.
