Recipe Notes

*You can use seasoned gluten-free crouton crumbs. If you're not using preseasoned bread crumbs, I would suggest adding about ½ teaspoon garlic powder and ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning to the mixture.
**Use your favorite marinara sauce or my delicious homemade version.

***Nutritional information calculated for chicken breast with topping only. My chicken was 1.28 pounds and was cut into 4 large breasts.
