Gluten-Free Substitute for Flour and Breadcrumb Coating on Chicken Breasts

MalibuCA | Jul 13, 2011 02:55 PM

I am new to gluten-free cooking, and I really appreciate the help here on Chowhound! I have a dynamite "gluten" recipe for Parmesan Crumbed Chicken, which uses traditional flour and breadcrumbs to coat the chicken breasts after dipping them in an egg mixture. My daughter recently learned that she must eat gluten-free, and I am trying to determine what I can use as a substitute for the flour and the breadcrumbs. The recipe steps are as follows: Spread the chicken with Dijon mustard. Dredge the chicken in flour, dip the chicken in the egg mixture (just egg and water), and then roll the chicken in a mixture made from 1-1/4 c. breadcrumbs and 3/4 c. Parmesan cheese. Please recommend what I might use in place of the flour and the breadcrumbs and specify amounts of the gluten-free products if they differ from the amounts for the flour and breadcrumbs that are called for in the original gluten version of the recipe. I have read postings here about substituting breadcrumbs in meatballs for binding purposes, but I am trying to use the breadcrumbs to form a crispy crust around the chicken, not as a binding agent. Any advice is most appreciated! Thanks!
